2> Whitewater adventures
Nepal is considered the second richest country in the world for freshwater resources. The melting snow from the Himalayas gives rise to tributaries of varying depths and intensities that flows through the deep gorges in the lap of these mountains until they all merge to the Ganges in the South. These rivers offer an exclusive site for water activities including Rafting and Kayaking. Rafting can be as simple as in Trishuli River to more demanding Bhote Koshi river.
Although Nepal is a Hindu nation by origin, it is also a host to the motley of religious ethnic minorities among them the more pronounced are the Buddhist (9%), Muslims( 4%), Kiratist followed by Christians, Sikhs, Jains and others in that order. Among the most popular Pilgrimage sites away from the capital is the Muktinath, a Hindu temple, in Jomsom which is the temple for Lord Shiva. The other site popular among Hindu pilgrimage is the Gosaikunda in the Langtang National Park area. This region consists of the Gosaikunda Lake and is considered to be the abode for Lord Shiva and Gauri as per Hindu mythology. Lumbini, a birthplace for Buddha, which lies in the southern border of Nepal, is a die to see place among the Buddhist pilgrimage.
4> Aerial activities
Among other adventurous activities include the adrenaline rushing Bunjee jumping, which includes a jump from a bridge 160m above the ground into the deep canyon of Bhote Koshi River. Similarly Zip flyer at Sarangkot, Pokhara also provides a thrilling experience as it drops vertically below 2000 ft and covering a distance of 1.8 km, making it the world’s tallest and scariest zip flyer. Paragliding over Sarangkot is also a good way to view the Machapuchhre and the Annapurna range while overseeing the Fewa Lake. For the tourist with less amount of time for trekking, one can opt for an early one-hour mountain flight. This flight departs from Kathmandu airport and takes the visitors to close proximity of the Himalayas including the Everest. It is a quick and cost-effective way to enjoy the Himalayan panorama.
Nepal is also known as a country of gods and goddesses or country with thousand temples. Among the temples, Swayambhunath (also known as the monkey temple), Pashupatinath and Boudhanath fall under UNESCO World Heritage sites. An eagle eye view of the Kathmandu valley from 2000 years old Swayambhunath stupa is really mesmerizing especially when the wind blows over the countless prayer flags. The cremation ground in the Pashupatinath temple where dead bodies are burnt according to Hindu rituals is a must visit attraction site for the person having cultural and religious affairs. The stupa of Boudhanath is considered to be the largest of its kind in the world and is a great place to enjoy an hour-long meal while watching over the tantalizing stupa. On ceremonies, mass prayer chanting by the Buddhist monks adds another peace to the soul that is unachievable elsewhere. The medieval ages old city of Bhaktapur, Patan and Lalitpur are also some contemporary sites to visit where old pagoda structured temples with wooden carvings of elephants, peacock and deities wait impatiently. The Kathmandu durbar square that is a venue for major religious and cultural ceremonies is also a place to encounter the only living goddesses in the world “The Kumari”.
Nepal also was known as “the Trekkers’ paradise” is no doubt an ultimate place for hiking and trekking lovers. The gradual increase in altitude from the south towards the North provides one with a wide range of choice for activities ranging from hiking, trekking and mountaineering. For visitors with a short stay in Nepal, hiking through the hills of Shivapuri, Nagarkot or Dhulikhel can still offer a glimpse of mountain ranges and an effective viewpoint for sunrise and sunset. For those with longer days to stay in Nepal, trekking ranging from week long to over month can be planned depending upon one's budget. Most popular of the treks are those to the Everest base camp (EBC), Annapurna Base Camp and the Langtang region. At EBC one can experience Tibetan culture in Sherpa village settings and observe Mount Amadablam, Lhotse, Gaurishankar and Mt. Everest itself among others. The rugged pavement that leads to this majestic base camp comes across five Gokyo Ri emerald lakes that are simply breathtaking. In Annapurna trek, one can expect to come across the paddy fields of Nayapul to the cold desert of Kaligandi in Jomsom. Passing across the world’s highest Annapurna circuit -Thorong-La pass (at 5416m) is a litmus for testing one’s trekking competency level.
Anyone enjoys uncountable cascades of waterfalls while crossing over countless suspension bridges observing the Machapuchhre and the Annapurna range of mountains and enjoying Gurung and Magar cultural experiences. The Langtang trek which starts from Kathmandu is a great choice to study Tamang community and be near to some great mountains like Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Gang Chhenpo. This is the best option for someone having less time of stay and willing to pay a lower cost for the trip.
