5 Places to Visit Nepal in Summer

The warm and welcoming sun. The beautiful wind compliments it. And the hum of people that look fantastic as fashion roars loud. With these wonderful traits on display, why wouldn’t you love Summer?

Summer has always been the focal point for travellers. And so has Nepal!! Complimenting the two is bound to make a relationship whose memory would last a lifetime. 

The awesome weather of Nepal, its scenic mountains, its calm rural life, its cultural harmony, peace and safety that every other tourist experiences are among many things to admire about this great country. 

And:

How do I begin to describe the summers here? It is simply breathtaking. If you take a note and fix the places you want to visit in Nepal, your summer will be rich in culture, experience and excitement.

Here’s a list of five places you should visit this summer in Nepal.

Kathmandu

5 Places to visit Nepal in Summer
The dense city of Kathmandu

This city is home to the only international airport in Nepal, and you need to spend a few days getting acquainted with it. Many temples have been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. In addition, there are cosy trekking areas on its outskirts. 

This city is a cultural crossroads of two generations, full of old and traditional buildings to go along with the newest buzz in architecture. A melting point where people of the most varied backgrounds live, there are always things to do, places to go to, food to taste, and people to talk to. 

Things to Do

  • It would help if you tried hiking around Kathmandu. With places like Nagarkot and Chisapani, you will chill out, observe mountains, view the awesome sunrise and sunset from a vantage point and taste great food.
  • Try eating in a few Newari restaurants. ‘Newari’ people are the oldest residents of this city, and their cuisine, rich in animal protein and Nepali spices and herbs, is something to not miss out on.
  • Be a pedestrian in Thamel. Thamel is a posh area of Kathmandu that offers a variety of cuisine in restaurants that offer live music. A place to not miss out for a night person.

What You Will Need

  • As the trek around Kathmandu is an easy trek, and you won’t have to carry a lot of belongings, you can carry a day backpack to store all your belongings.
  • A good camera to take wonderful pictures along the way.

Pokhara

Pokhara, the lake city
The Phewa lake in Pokhara

Well, does this place need any introduction? Filled with great trekking routes, beautiful sceneries and majestic water resources, if there is any city in Nepal that is picture-perfect, it is Pokhara.

The social tradition here is quite similar to Kathmandu. It is full of people from different parts of the country. But it is not as crowded as Kathmandu. The traffic here is mellow, and the air has a freshness of a shower. 

Things to Do

  • Have a boating experience while you are here. You can also try swimming here at home in some of the most beautiful lakes such as Begnas, Phewa, and Rupa. But only with the right gear and permit. Devi’s fall is not to be missed.
  • A visit to caves here is unmissable. Mahendra cave, Chamero (Bat) cave, and Gupteshwor Mahadev cave will be an exciting experience for you. 
  • You can opt to trek to Poon Hill. It is a trekking site that is easily accessible and can be completed within a week. 
  • The Annapurna Base Camp trek is another trek you can undertake from Pokhara. 

What You Will Need

  • It is a certainty that you will bring your camera while you are trekking in the Pokhara region. And you need to make sure that your camera will be well protected. While trekking, it is a certainty that you will spend your time on terrains that have slopes. And there is every chance of your camera dangling while ascending or descending the slopes while trekking. So it would be best if you carried a good camera backpack for backpacking.
  • It would be best if you had an eye on the weather of the regions you will visit. There are four seasons in Nepal, and the weather varies accordingly. So do a rough background check of the region you will visit.
  • According to the weather, you must also change how you pack things. If you are trekking at a lower altitude, you need not pack heavily as the weather is fairly warm and consistent. But trekking at a higher altitude demands you to pay special attention to the items you pack. 

Mustang

Mustang of the place to visit in Nepal
The Mustang – Forbidden Land

A place on the outskirts of the Himalayas, Mustang is a unique place for trekkers and spiritual tourists. 

There are local tribes that have never been outside the district, and you get a sense of how purely agricultural lives look like there. Some people depend completely on animals such as Yak for almost everything from food to shelter.

Things to Do

  • Visiting the Kali Gandaki Valley, the place with the deepest gorge, is unmissable. 
  • Opportunities for rock climbing and biking are available. If you are a roadie, this will keep your adrenaline pumping. 
  • Taste the variety of Yak products and other animals available here. As the life here is almost untouched by the city life, the food here is pure and healthful. 

What You Will Need

  • Places along the Mustang valley trek are rural. As the places are not equipped with electricity, you might not have good chances of charging your devices. A backpack charger will be a good way to solve this problem.
  • A willingness to explore the culture of this place will be vital. As this place was a forbidden kingdom until 1991, you will have a chance to get a flavour of the Tibetan and the Gurung culture prevalent in this region.

Everest Region

Everest region, the place to visit in Nepal
The Everest Region

The Everest region needs no introduction. 

It is one of the most sought-out places in Nepal for trekking. There are a variety of trekking routes available in this region. You might wonder if you will be able to complete the EBC trek. But with appropriate training, you can certainly complete it. 

Sagarmatha National Park is a great assembly of flora and fauna of the alpine region. It is the first National Park in Nepal to have been included in the Natural World Heritage Sites list. 

The National Park is the resting place of the awesome Gokyo valley and the lakes accompanying it. It also includes Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Lhotse, to name a few. 

Things to Do

  • It would be best if you visited the Tengboche Monastery in the Everest region. Talking to people here will give you some idea about the culture of this region.
  • Trekking to Kala Pathar will give you the best view of Everest mountain. It is a common misconception among people that the Everest Base Camp is the best place to view Mt. Everest. 
  • Namche Bazaar, referred to as the capital of Sherpas, is a hub of domestic and international tourists. You should spend a day in this region to acclimatise. 

What You Will Need

  • Adjusting to the altitude of Everest Base Camp Trek is something that some trekkers struggle with. So you should train well before you start the trek. You should also monitor the water and food intake while trekking, as a low amount of food and water intake increase the chances of altitude sickness.
  • Longer treks in the Everest region last up to 25 days. So you should train appropriately. While training, you should emphasize running a lot as you will require a lot of lower body strength to trek in this region. For interested trekkers who are struggling with heel problems such as plantar fasciitis and other spasms, excellent running shoes are advised for preparation. 
  • Your clothing will also be something to keep your eye on. Down jackets, waterproof trousers, hiking shoes, woollen gloves, scarves, trekking poles and sunscreens should be on your priority list.

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek

Kanchenjunga, place to visit in Nepal
Kanchenjunga Region – Off the Beaten Track

It is a wonder to me why more tourists don’t flood the Eastern part of Nepal for some fun? The hills there are exotic, the people hospitable as anywhere you can find, and that too at the Mount Kanchenjunga Base Camp!

Besides Kanchenjunga Base Camp, the Eastern part of Nepal has wonderful religious sites, and people here exist in harmony. The people here are street smart, funny and charming. 

Things to Do

  • Take moments to grasp the beauty of the beautiful tea gardens. Kanyam and Fikkal are the best places to see acres of spaces of tea gardens. 
  • Pathibhara and Mai Beni are stopping points for people who want to get into the heart of Hindu spirituality.
  • You can tread to remote villages with relative ease on local buses. The scenes there are mesmerizing.

What You Will Need

  • If you want to get to the Kanchenjunga region, you need to pack just as well as you would have if travelling in the Everest region. Clothing must be multi-layered, and a good down jacket as the outermost layer is a must. Water-resistant hiking boots, trousers, sunscreens, woollen gloves, trekking poles, spacious backpack and chargers will be necessary.
  • A camera to capture all the stunning views of the Kanchenjunga region is a must. 
  • Kanchenjunga is the longest trek in Nepal. So it would be best to prepare well before you embark on your trek. 

Conclusion

Nepal, in all its glory, offers a range of summer tourist facilities. They might be in gorgeous valleys like Pokhara and Kathmandu or the laps of mountains such as Kanchenjunga. So whether you want to trek, bike or enjoy a ride in luxury vehicles and hotels, you have it all. If you are not ready for any of these, you can also try flying over the mountains in a Heli or a mountain flight. So make the most of your summer and make the most of Nepal!!

About Nepal

About Nepal – Nepal Hiking and Trekking Tour

Nepal is an epicenter of never ending festival and frolic that transcends from temporal to eternal world. For many, Nepal symbolizes as an ultimate adventure destination that is rarely found anywhere else in the world. And, for others, Nepal appears to be a Shangri-La – the Lost Horizon that has been far from reality clustered with deities and demons waiting for offerings. However, Nepal, in fact, is a country with diverse arrays of tourism products – a rare combination of mystic, mystery, mountain and merriment.

Guerrilla Trekking Trail has been launched recently, giving trekkers, the chance to retrace the guerillas’ footsteps. This trekking trail was used by Maoists during “People’s War’. The Guerrilla Trek, a two – week to four – week hike depending on the itinerary which stretches across central and western Nepal, is designed to draw in more foreigners as the Himalayan nation seeks to rebuild an economy through tourism.

The Government of Nepal has launched 1700 kilometer long Great Himalayan Trail. The trail begins near Kanchenjunga on the eastern border and heads west navigating the domains of eight of the world’s 8000 meters peaks, from the beautiful but lesser known Makalu to the famous Everest. It ends in Humla on the Tibetan border.

Nepal is now on the threshold of making a new constitution with a consensus from all political parties imbibing the spirit of democracy. All political parties have reiterated their commitment time and again for peace in the country assuring the tourism community for creating conducive atmosphere for doing business. Tourism is in the top priority of government of Nepal.

Nepal is all about the true feeling of hospitality; smiling people; festivals throughout the year; extreme adventure and air sports; meditation and may more.

Things to do in Pokhara

Activities and things to do in Pokhara

Pokhara is approximately 200 km west of Kathmandu, and is the second largest city in Nepal. With some of the most spectacular and breath taking natural beauty in the country, Pokhara is a city well worth visiting. Here are just some of the wonderful things to do in Pokhara:

Spend some time at Fewa Tal (Fewa Lake)

Measuring 1.5km by 4km, Fewa Tal is the second largest lake in Nepal and serves as a playground for locals and visitors alike. You could hire one of the brightly coloured sailboats or rowing boats and set sail across the water or swim across if you’re feeling brave: the water is reasonably shallow ensuring it feels comfortably warm. Whilst at the lake a visit to Barahi Temple is an absolute must: this two storeyed pagoda is Pokhara’s most important temple, and it sits almost exactly in the middle of the lake.

Explore Devi’s Fall

2 km south-west of Pokhara airport you’ll find Devi’s fall (also known locally as Patale Chhango or Hell’s fall). The water plunges then forms a pool before descending into an underground tunnel that runs 100 meters underground. This awe inspiring water fall is said to be lucky, with visitors throwing coins into the statues that sit at its base. This is an incredibly popular attraction for tourists to the region, and does tend to get busy during peak periods. To get the best from your adventure travels in Pokhara, particularly if you don’t have much time in the city, it is well worth taking part in a Pokhara tour with an official guide. A good guide will be able to navigate you around this natural wonders safely and share stories and legends about the region at the same time.

Climb to the World Peace Pagoda

At the top of the hill to the south of Fewa lake sits the World Peace Pagoda. Access to the pagoda involves crossing the lake and then taking quite a steep climb up the hill. The pagoda itself is an impressive sight and well worth the visit, but what really makes this pagoda worth exploration is the incredible views across both the Annapurna mountain range and the city that you can enjoy from its vantage point.

Visit the Old Bazar

At odds with the natural wonders of Pokhara is the city’s Old Bazaar: a bustling street market that you have to see to believe! The traders here are ethnically diverse and each sell a wide array of different and exotic wears. The sights and sounds of Pokhara’s Old Bazaar are worth exploration even if you don’t intend to shop, but shopping here is heartily recommended! Whilst many of Nepal’s bazaars have been marred by modern consumerism, the old world charm of the bazaar here is still alive and well. You’ll find Pokhara’s Old Bazaar located about 4 km from Lakeside, and it is such a popular focal point in the city that it is incredibly easy to find and explore.

Tips for travelling to Nepal

Nepal is a country most well known for its beautiful landscapes, impressive mountains and snowy terrains. If you’re an adventure seeker or adrenaline, you can do plenty of activities to satisfy your craving. It’s the country where you’ll find ten of the highest peaks on the planet. It also has lush greenery, which nature lovers will surely enjoy. There is a wide variety of things to do in Nepal for tourists. Nepali is the country’s main language, but English is also widely spoken. The friendly locals eagerly share their culture and traditions with visitors worldwide. It’s an exotic land that entices, inspires and excites anyone who steps on its magnificent land. Here is a list of the best tips to keep in mind before visiting Nepal’s wonderful country.

Mount Everest

Most people visit Nepal to experience hiking to Everest Base Camp. However, if you’re not interested in hiking, you can still see its beauty by taking a scenic flight around it.

Taking a flight to Mount Everest

Most local airlines offer flights between 7 AM to 9 AM, and they all depart from Kathmandu. It is a must-try activity during your visit since it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You’ll be able to drift above the clouds and enjoy Mount Everest without feeling exhausted from climbing it. The local airlines have ensured that the windows on the plane are non-tinted so that tourists can fully capture its beauty.

• Not everyone is aware that you have the option not to hike to Everest Base Camp if you don’t want to. That’s why this is one of the top tips of Nepal that you should learn before planning your trip.

Nepali Food

The local Nepali food is also known as Dal Bhat, which is made of lentils, rice and soup. The side dishes consist of fresh vegetables like cauliflower and potato. It’s a vegetarian meal, but you can also request to add chicken or mutton to your order.

Local and International Flavors

During your visit, you will be amazed by the variety of meals you can choose from on the menu. You’ll be able to have a taste of local cuisine as well as international flavours. Nepal’s people enjoy spicy food; however, if you’re not a fan of spicy food, you can request a milder version of the dishes they offer.

• Their traditional cuisine is numerous around the city, so you’ll be able to experience it at just about any local restaurant.

• Nepali food has been strongly influenced by Indian cuisine, which makes it delicious.

Adventure

Nepal should be part of your bucket list if you’re an adventure seeker or adrenaline. Its impeccable terrain makes it a top destination for adventure tourism.

Bring A Friend

One of the best tips you should learn before your visit is to have a friend to go on your adventures with you. Hiking and trekking on your own are highly discouraged. It’s recommended to have someone with you so that you can prevent dangerous accidents from happening. If you’re new to hiking or trekking, hiring a professional guide through a registered trek agency is best. The mountainous areas of Nepal are known to be complicated to tread. This is why injuries are bound to happen if you’re not well prepared. You can also easily get lost without someone there to guide you.

• If you plan a trek to Everest Base Camp, you must prepare for the possibility of high altitude sickness.

• Make sure to dress appropriately and only bring things that you’re sure you can carry during the entirety of your hike.

Social Etiquette

Travelling Nepal requires a good understanding of the country’s social etiquette. It is an important step for your travel since you have to make sure that you’re giving respect to their culture.

-Local Greeting

First, you have to learn how the locals greet each other. The traditional way involves placing your palms together in a prayer position and then saying “Namaste”.

-Showing Respect to Elders

Second, if you’re speaking with someone older, you can use the words “Dai” for men or “Didi” for women.

-Public Etiquette

Third, it’s important to ensure that you’re not stepping on another person’s outstretched legs since it’s considered very impolite in Nepali culture. You should also avoid touching another person with your feet. As long as you obey the local culture of Nepal, you wouldn’t encounter any issues during your visit. Public display of affection is also considered rude in the country.

• If you are-

invited to a home of a Nepali person, make sure to remove your shoes before entering as a sign of respect.

going swimming, it’s best to wear a one-piece swimsuit instead of a bikini.

• Make sure to wear appropriate clothing while visiting all the tourist spots. It is because wearing revealing clothing is frowned upon in Nepali culture.

Top 10 places to visit in Kathmandu, Nepal

There is so much to do in Kathmandu: it is a wonderful mix of developing modern city and incredible ancient wonders. Tourism in Kathmandu can seem a little daunting for newcomers who have never visited before: the crowds, traffic and temperatures can be overwhelming. However, armed with the right information and a reputable tour guide, you’ll soon see the beauty and the wonder of this truly beautiful city.

Here are the top 10 places to visit in Kathmandu:

1. Spend Time in Durbar Square

Durbar Square is one of the most frequently visited plaza’s in the heart of Kathmandu, and well worth a visit. Here you’ll find medieval religious and royal buildings alongside vendors selling souvenirs and candy floss on giant sticks to tourists. Whilst the tourism slightly mars the beauty of the ancient buildings, there is nowhere better to visit in Kathmandu.

2. Explore Kathmandu’s old city

Kathmandu is home to a huge number of beautiful ancient temples, and you’ll find many of these in Kathmandu’s old city. This is the perfect route for a walking tour, taking you through Ason Chowk, Indra Chowk and Janal Bahal squares. To enjoy a unique perspective that very few tourists see, try to locate Itum Bahal’s heritage street during your journey.

3. Spend time in Swayambhunath

Swayambhunath (Also known as the monkey temple) is one of the most impressive and easy to access temples in Kathmandu. To enter the temple you’ll have to climb 365 stone steps, but the temple and the views are well worth the climb. Visitors also love meeting the hundreds of Rhesus Macaques monkeys that live in the temple.

4. Visit Three Buddha Park

You’ll see hundreds of Buddha statues during your time in Nepal, but some of the finest examples in Kathmandu are in Three Buddha Park, which sit in Swayambhu just west of the stupa, at the bottom of the hill. Here you’ll find three dazzling gold Buddha statues which are often overlooked but with each standing at 20m tall and sitting in the heart of a tranquil reflective garden, there is nowhere better to sit and enjoy your time in Kathmandu.

5. Look Out From the Bhimsen Tower

The Bhimsen Tower was damaged in the 2015 earthquake with shook Nepal, and is currently the focus of reconstruction in Kathmandu. In its glory the Bhimsen tower was a former watchtower where you could climb the staircase of 213 steps, leading to a panoramic view of Kathmandu city. Despite its destruction, the site of the tower is still worth a visit.

6. Explore the Narayanhiti Palace Museum

The Narayanhiti Palace is a former Royal palace which was turned into a museum in 2009. If you’re interested to learn more about the rich history of Nepal then this is the perfect place to visit: the entrance fee also includes access to the Palace’s well-kept gardens.

7. Enjoy the Café Culture

Thamel is largely known for plethora of backpackers and bustling shops, but it is also a wonderful place to relax, rest your feet after a busy day, and enjoy the café culture. You’ll find a dozen different cafes here, making it the perfect place to enjoy a Nepali snack and a rich coffee or two.

8.Visit the Kathesimbhu Stupa

The Kathesimbhu Stupa is a much smaller replica of the city’s famous monkey temple, and it is fascinating to visit both attractions and view this one in miniature. You’ll find the Kathesimbhu Stupa in a small courtyard on the way to Kathmandu Durbar Square, making it an easy to view and access attraction.

9. Be Overwhelmed at the Pashupatinath

The Pashupatinath complex contains one of the oldest temples in Kathmandu, and as a functioning temple you’ll find a host of burning ghats here. The sight of open cremations can be massively overwhelming, but if you’re interested in understanding the full spectrum of Hinduism then this is an opportunity you will be unable to have anywhere else.

10. Take a Walk Down Freak Street

Kathmandu’s Freak Street rose to infamy during the 1960s and 1970s as home to hippies, backpackers, and other travellers in Nepal. Whilst the street no longer lives up to its wild reputation, its history means it is still a great place to have a walk and enjoy a coffee in one of the many cafes.

Be a Sherpa Porter in an Everest Base Camp trek

The life of a Nepalese Sherpa has long been considered exotic and exciting: Sherpa Porters live their lives on the mountain, carrying the luggage of travelers hoping to glimpse the incredible views and altitudes that the Sherpa’s are able to enjoy almost every day. Sherpa’s live their lives high in the Himalayas and their lives are tied to the mountains.

The youngest person to ever reach Everest’s summit was a Sherpa boy named Temba Tsheri who was just 16 when he reached the peak in 2001. One of the most famous Sherpa’s though is Tenzing Norgay who, alongside Sir Edmund Hilary, became the first person to reach the mountain’s summit in 1953. It is famously said that Norgay did everything that Sir Edmund Hilary did, but whist carrying a tremendous weight at the same time.

The knowledge and strength of the Sherpa’s on Mount Everest is the stuff of legends. We use a wide range of Sherpa’s on our treks, with one Sherpa Porter being responsible for carrying the luggage of two of our customers.
