Booking a Holiday, Tour or Vacation in Nepal

By: Stuart Cheese

In my capacity as the UK Director of Operations for One World Tours Limited, I am often asked about the destinations I have been to, especially some of the more unusual ones. I try to give a good opinion on those places and offer some helpful advice, with that in mind here then, are my top suggestions for sites to visit during your holiday in Nepal.
Nepal' s capital city is Kathmandu with other smaller cities which include, Biratnagar, Patan, Pokhara, Birgunj, Dharan and Nepalgunj. The climate is sub tropical in Kathmandu as opposed to further south of the country where the summers are cooler and the winters are severe in the mountains. Nepal is home to 8 of the most highest peaks in the world one of which includes Mount Everest. This is one of the reasons that Nepal has become a country that attracts many tourists as there are plenty opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, camping, jungle safaris, fishing, river rafting, its stunning places of worship and majestic temples.
June through to September is the time when the monsoon season occurs in Nepal, during which showers occur almost every day.
There are many tourist attractions in Kathmandu many of which are temples, here are some of the most amazing Machchhendrananth Temple is noted for its elaborate artistic beauty.

Pashupatinath Temple has a beautiful two tiered golden roof and silver doors it is also famous for its creative architecture. Atop the Phulchowki mountain is another shrine to behold.
The main square of the city (Durbar Square) contains many other temples and architectural statues and structures such as the lion gate and the statue of King Bhupatindra Malla.
Dattatraya Temple is believed to have been built entirely from trunk of a single tree.
Pokhara is a city in central Nepal making one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. It is located on the north west corner of the Pokhara Valley where its beautiful lake cascades into impressive waterfalls and then disappears with a thunderous roar into a hole.
This wonderful city has a sub tropical climate and is home to some unique and vibrant festivals which enchant the onlooker with its cultural festivities.
Langtang National Park is one of the most natural and unspoiled parks of Nepal. The Langtang Valley, hillside covered in forests and the holy lakes at Gosainkunda are some of the jewels of the park. This stunning landscape is home to the red panda along with the Himalayan black bear, grey langur monkey, leopard and wild boar. This park has to be explored on foot and offers many trails for the visitor to choose from.
If you have taken the time to visit Nepal then, whatever you beliefs, it is worth experiencing Lumbini the birthplace of Buddha more than 2600 years ago. It is a place that is enclosed with forests making the atmosphere tranquil and serene.
Mount Everest is the world's tallest mountain and can be experienced in a variety of ways. You can see the mountain with a flight-seeing tour, visit places in Nepal where there are specific sites to view the mountain, although this is of course not so close up. There is only a short window for ascending the mountain for the more adventurous among you. This is between April and May with the easiest route to the summit being the southern ridge and by far the most popular.
