Travel to Nepal: A Breathtaking Experience

Rising from humid lowlands to the world’s highest peaks in less than 100 miles, Nepal has a diversity of landscapes equaled only by its multiplicity of religions and traditions. In this tiny country lie eight of the world’s ten highest mountains and more than 100 different castes and ethnic groups, offering huge changes of scenery during your travel to Nepal.

A country designed for hikers and adventurers, Nepal boasts some of the best hiking and climbing in the world. When traveling to Nepal, many people will come for a chance to hike the Annapurna circuit. Even if you’re not interested in an Annapurna trek, touring Nepal is worthwhile as you attend historic festivals in Nepal, such as the Yartung Horse Festival.

Above all, there are the people. Travelers marvel that they “went to Nepal for the mountains, but returned for the people.” For more, watch Toni Neubauer on  A Conversation with Brent Boynton.

Travel Info

Nepal Travel Information
Food. Weather. Activities.

Spring and fall are usually considered the best times for travel in most of Nepal, although summer is good for those who wish to visit the Mustang area and perhaps far West Nepal. In the fall, you’ll be greeted with lush countryside views vibrant from the recent monsoon season. In the spring you’ll find beautiful Nepal filled with blooming wildflowers bathing in the warm spring weather.

Food from Nepal takes influences from both Indian and Chinese cuisine. One of Nepal’s most popular items, momo, consists of steamed dumplings filled with fatty meats and a mixture of spices and veggies. Momo is also served with achar, a kind of dipping sauce made with hot pickles and Indian spices. Other popular Nepalese dishes frequently feature rice, lentils, and sauces. Nepal’s strong Hindu population means many meals are vegetarian-friendly.

Nepal’s mountainous region means temperatures vary depending on the elevation you’re currently at. Higher up and you’ll be met with pleasant summers but devastating winters. On the other hand, the valleys of Kathmandu have an average summer temperature between 66ºF and 95ºF (19ºC – 35ºC). Nepal has a monsoon season arriving in June and persisting through August, during which trekking should only be undertaken by the experienced.

In recent years, Nepal has quickly developed a significant telephone service. Just recently, Nepal Telecom introduced 4G LTE mobile service to its subscribers. Likewise, the growing number of internet cafés in populated areas of Nepal make it easier for you to connect to the internet during your travels. You’ll still have trouble picking up cell service in the more rural villages.

  • A mixture of Hinduism and Buddhism
  • A vast array of foods with Asian and Indian influences
  • Home of 8 of the 10 tallest mountains in the world, including Mt. Everest
  • Beautiful temples and monasteries dot the countryside
  • The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu
