Nepal is for sure a beautiful country, but like any country not everywhere is just so. Here are some suggested and rather varied places we think you'll find interesting. The "usual suspects" as well as the revelationary. Choose the places you'd like to visit and for how long and we'll plan your holiday for you.
Colourful, chaotic and an assault on the senses-Nepal's capital city of Kathmandu is a mix of everything. Literally!
Stunning Newari architecture and incredibly atmospheric. Medieval Bhaktapur is a journey back in time. A 'Must see".
A real Newari town, with great Himalayan mountain views too. The added bonus of the recently opened, luxurious Dwarikas Dhulikel Resort-a lifestyle retreat-is a "must stay" if your wallet says "YES!"
Whilst an elephant back and jungle safari is the main reason people visit Chitwan, the flat Terai lands are the 'food basket' of Nepal and fascinating in their own right. Not only is the landscape different from the Himalayas, the Tharu people are too.
Looking for the REAL, rural and unspoiled Nepal? Look no further! This delightful hill village is just perfect to 'discover' genuine Nepal village life as well as a place to 'get away from it all'....relax, unwind and be at ease with life.
A short drive from Kathmandu, yet dramatically situated on the rim of the hills that form the Kathmandu Valley, the 'resort' of Nagarkot is renowned as one of the places to witness a panoramic Himalayan sunrise and sunset.
Sleepy Bandipur is perched high above the Trisuli River Valley and commands sweeping views of the Annapurnas and Manaslu. A charming, relaxed and fine example of a small Newari mountain town.
Nepal's No.1 tourist resort, Pokhara with its balmy, sub-tropical climate, lake and Himalayan views stretching from Dhaulagiri, the entire Annapurna range, Fishtail and Manaslu is also fast becoming Nepal's 'action' capital too.
Not too far from Pokhara, but decidedly more tranquil, Begnas Lake still has great mountain views and is a great area to explore and relax.
If it's all about 'location,location,location', then the tiny mountain village of Thasang has it. Outlandishly located beneath Dhaulagiri, its eagles nest position high above the Kali Gandaki Valley with views of the Nilgiris and Annapurna too must make this one of the most incredible places you've possibly never heard of.
Talk about remote. The region of Mustang lies behind the Himalayas on the Tibetan plateau. Nowadays this region is more accessible than ever thanks to the 18 minute flight from Pokhara and jeep roads meaning Muktinath, Kagbeni and even Lo Mantang are within reach.
About 30km from Kathmandu, but a world apart, the ancient traditional Newari town of Panauti with its ornate temples dates back to the 14th Century. Nearby Namobuddha is one of the most sacred buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal and is home to the Namobuddha Stupa and the Tashi Yangtse Monastery.
Separated from Kathmandu by the Bagmati River, this the 'city of beauty' is an architectural delight of temples and bahals.
If the hustle and bustle of crazy Kathmandu all sounds a bit too much, then the Shivapuri Hills a mere 7km from Kathmandu afford heavenly, authentic respite.
Birth place of Buddha and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lumbini has changed a lot in recent years & decidely for the better.
