Why should Visit to Nepal

Updated on August 21, 2014

Imagine the view stretching for miles after miles as you stand on top of a mountain with the very same wind in your hair and the sun in your face. Now picture lush green hills with trails that bend like a snake on a prowl, valleys nestled between hills, graceful waterfalls, calm lakes and happy faces. Now imagine the raw wilderness in a humid jungle as you enjoy an elephant safari ride. Now picture all that diversity in a tiny country where you can travel from end to end within just 4 hours by flight.

Nepal is heaven in itself for people who love and appreciate natural beauty. However, Nepal has a lot more to offer too! From trekking, mountain biking and rafting to bungee jumping, there are lots of ways to satisfy your adrenaline cravings in Nepal if you are an adventure lover. For those on a spiritual journey, Nepal is a beautiful harmony of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam among many others. If you are someone who loves to observe and mingle with various cultures and lifestyles, you would enjoy Nepal for its rich diversity in ethnicity with over 80 different types of ethnic groups.

Another reason you should visit Nepal for your next holiday – value for money. Nepal is relatively less expensive when it comes to tourism. With 1 US dollar worth approximately 100 Nepalese rupees (Nrs), you save major bucks when you visit Nepal as opposed to visiting, say, a European country; meaning your hotel is cheaper, the food is cheaper and you pay much lesser for any sort of recreational activities. Also, Nepal was listed as one of the Top 10 cheapest cities in terms of living expenses by BBC Travel with meals at restaurants costing only $4. Do give it some thought when you plan for your next vacation.

One thing Nepalese are good at and proud of is their hospitality. We have a Sanskrit saying “Atithi Devo Bhava” which literally translates to – “Guests are Gods” and we abide by it faithfully. Tourists are treated very well and sometimes, also given special treatment. Nepalese are very friendly by nature and will also go out of their way to help people. When you have all that goodness in one place, don’t ask yourself why you should visit nepal. Ask yourself “Why not?.
