Country of Sagarmatha, Truly a Feast for the Eyes
Nepal is a country of Asia, lying along the southern slopes of the Himalayan Mountain Ranges. This country is located between India and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. Kathmandu is the Capital of Nepal. Other two largest cities are Pokhara and Patan. The total surface area of Nepal is at 147,181 sq km. 81.3% of people here follow Hinduism. The official language here is called Nepali. However, There are some other languages like Maithali, Bhojpuri, Tharu, Tamang, Doteli etc.
The Country of Thrill and Beauty
Summing up Nepal would not be an easy task. Talking about Nepal, first thing that springs to mind is Mount Everest. I was overwhelmed with joy when I first jumped off the plane and stepped into this country with the unbeatable excitement. I got 5 full days to visit the historical and famous places in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Along with these two cities, I stayed in their most thrilling "The Last Resort" where people from around the world reach to participate in thrilling activities.
Kathmandu: This is a home to many historic cities and religious monuments. Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur, Swayhambhunath and Boudhanath stupas are some of them. It was great to visit some of these religious architecture and please my eyes. Walking on the streets of Thamel and taste yummy food also seem great to remember.
Pokhara: Pokhara is definitely a scenic city and It seemed a very clean and relaxed city to me. The first scenic beauty in front of my hotel was Phewa Lake and I did paragliding over the phewa lake. There is also a waterfall which is called Davis Falls. This waterfall has a length of 500 meters and depth of 100 feet. The original name for this waterfall is patale chhango. Another thing is, there is a history behind this name Davis Falls which I would want you guys to find out. For something extra special, I took 10km trip to Sarangkot and watched the sunrise over the Himalayas (fell in love with that <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3).
Swayambhunath, also known as the "Monkey Temple" is one of the holiest buddhist chaityas in Kathmandu, Nepal. The main entrance of this stupa has 365 stone steps which need to be climbed before you reach the main stupa complex
This is a small part of Pashupatinath which is the largest temple complex in Nepal. It stretches on both sides of the Bagmati river which is considered holy by Hindus. Pashupatinath temple is one of the 8 UNESCO Cultural Heritage sites of the Kathmandu Valley.
The Last Resort
The resort is full of thrilling activities and fun. People having the urge to experience thrill, would definitely need to go and stay in this resort. They provide the opportunity to take part in the activities like canyon swing, whitewater rafting, bungee Jump, canyoning. All these together in one resort, sounds amazing.
It was never so easy to wake up at 4 AM in winter. However, I was dying to watch the sunrise and the mountain peaks. The moment came when the sunrise touched the Annapurna Mountain Ranges. My eyes filled with joy and I gazed at the spectacular shades of sunrise on the mountain.
World Peace Pagoda
World Peace Pagoda, also known as Shanti Stupa is situated on the top of a hill on the southern shore of phewa lake. Nepal has two of the 80 Peace pagodas in the world and this one in Pokhara is the first World peace pagoda in Nepal. This pagoda is 115 feet tall and 344 feet in diameter. It provides a view of Himalayan range, Phewa lake and Pokhara city.
Food you need to taste
I would say louder it is Mo Mo's and Nepali Thali. People should also have Chow Mein, Sel Roti and Thukpa over there. However, if you do not want to waste your money then never go for any kind of beef dishes in Nepal. Other than that, eat and fill your stomach.
