Although a small country, Nepal is described as ‘a piece of heaven on Earth’. And why not?
Nepal is blessed with natural beauty throughout its territory with magnificent mountains, picturesque forests, scenic landscapes, snowy peaks, beautiful lakes, rich wildlife – the list goes on.

Most people know Nepal for being the birthplace of Lord Buddha, and having the tallest peak in the world, Mount Everest, but these are just tiny portions of this beautiful country.

So what are these other amazing places that you must visit on your next trip to Nepal?


Pokhara is a land of spectacular beauty adorned with vibrant green hills and shimmering lakes. Pokhara is basically a tourist city and there’s a lot you can do in Pokhara, and by a lot, we really mean A LOT!

First of all, you can sit and admire the panoramic and stunning views of Mount Annapurna I to IV, the tallest being Mount Annapurna I (8091 m).

Commonly known as the Fish-tail mountain, Mount Machhapuchhre (6993 m) is also a splendid watch for a place that is off limits to climbing for religious purposes, which is why it is one of the few places on Earth that no one has set a foot on!

The Pokhara valley constitutes of seven lakes, among which Rupa, Begnas and Fewa lakes are worth a visit. Fewa Lake is the closest and you can enjoy boating with or without someone to work the oars for you.

Other than these, Sarangkot (a lovely village for the perfect sunrise and sunset views), World Peace Pagoda (a Buddhist stupa), David’s Falls and the Mahendra Cave are also major attractions in Pokhara that is popular amongst visitors and offer fun for the whole family.
For more adventurous ventures, you can indulge in fun adventure sports including paragliding, zip flyer, parahawking (yes, paragliding with trained hawks!), ultra-light, bungee jumping, and trekking.

Pokhara also boasts a large number of restaurants, bars and all sorts of eateries along the famous Lakeside where you can chill with friends and listen to live music or just enjoy a great meal after a day of fun.


A favorite weekend getaway, Nagarkot is a beautiful village located near Kathmandu Valley. One of the most picturesque places in Nepal, it is renowned for its beautiful sunrise and sunset views from the mountains.

This village also holds one of the broadest mountains views, among other places near Kathmandu. The view is dominated by the Langtang range, Annapurna range, Manaslu range and sometimes Mount Everest (on good days!), along with lovely views of Shivapuri National Park and Kathmandu Valley.

Ask your hotel for an early wakeup call so you can enjoy the surreal sunrise experience that is worth losing sleep for.


The major attraction in Chitwan is the famous Chitwan National Park, which is a world heritage site and includes a lake with a pretty unusual name, Bishazari Tal (20,000 lakes).

The park’s dense forests and grasslands are home to one of the rarest species, one-horned rhinoceros and other animals like tiger, leopard, elephants, sloths, giant hornbill and dolphins.

Apart from the rich wildlife, Chitwan is especially famous for the Jungle Safari. This safari is usually done through one of four ways: a walk, a jeep safari or canoeing. Animal sightings are guaranteed and birdwatchers will especially love it.

No wonder Chitwan is also referred to as “The Safari Park Of Nepal”!

While the nature lover in you will be overwhelmed by the safari, animal sightings and bird watching, there’s yet another aspect that will keep you interested: the trip to local Tharu villages. These can be a rich cultural experience, even more so with Tharu cultural where you get to see how the local Tharu live their lives.

Remind your agent to include a Chitwan package for an unforgettable wildlife experience!
