About Nepal

: Backed by the towering Himalaya where monasteries cling to snow-capped peaks, Nepal is a landscape like no other. It descends through turquoise lakes and fast-flowing rivers to dense jungle, home to tigers and rhinos. There are countless trails and multi-day treks on offer to the base of the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, or tour the forests of Chitwan National Park atop lumbering elephants to spot rare wildlife. But Nepal is not just about the scenery. It is home to a rich culture, concentrated in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Kathmandu Valley, as well as festivals throughout the year celebrating the diverse religions which call Nepal home. A Nepal tour allows you to immerse yourself in the spiritual home of yoga and meditation, whilst participating in one of many adrenalin-pumping activities on offer. No matter your holiday style, Nepal has something to offer.

Nagarkot Himalayas Mountain Range

Best time to visit Nepal

October to November. The autumn high season sees warm days and clear skies, perfect for trekking and taking in mountain vistas from the lakeside town of Pokhara. It also coincides with two of Nepal’s major festivals, Dasain and Tihaar.

December to January. Winter is an ideal time to visit Chitwan as day-time temperatures are comfortable (20-25C) and rainfall at a minimum. If you can handle the winter cold, there are far fewer trekkers in the Himalaya mountains and magnificent snow cover.

February to April. With warm weather and the Himalaya’s spectacular rhododendrons in bloom, Spring is another good time to trek, although there is often haze obscuring the mountains at lower elevations. With warm temperatures and no high season tourists, the Kathmandu Valley is also pleasant.

May to September. The build up to the monsoon and the eventual rains which descend from June through to September are the low season. Apart from heavy rains and landslides, there is also stifling heat, leeches, and cloud covering mountain vistas.

Nepali Ethnic Groups

Annapurna Nepal Sherpas

Sherpas

Nepal’s friendly Sherpas, a group of Tibetan origin, are traditionally subsistence farmers, but today many of these high-altitude dwellers work as trekking guides and porters. You will encounter their villages across the Himalaya mountain slopes, and they practice a religion that combines Buddhism and animist beliefs, with the peak of Khumbila considered highly sacred.

Dolpo People

Dolpo people

Considered the highest mountain settlements in the world, the fortified dzong villages of the Dolpo are home to Tibetan nomads who have inhabited the region for more than one thousand years. Treks through the Upper and Lower Dolpo allow you to encounter their hardy, remote existence, as well as visit their sacred pilgrimage site of Crystal Mountain.

Annapurna Gurungs People

Gurungs

This Tibeto-Burman ethnic group inhabits the central region of Nepal and their villages surrounding Pokhara feature beautifully-built traditional stone houses. While revered as fierce warriors, the Gurungs are also known as honey harvesters, using precarious hand-made rope ladders and long sticks to collect it within the Himalayan foothills.

Festivals in Nepal

Dashain Festival

Dashain Festival

Nepal’s longest and most anticipated festival is Dashain, held in late September/early October over 15 days. Pujas, offerings and animal sacrifices in honour of the goddess Durga take place as families reconcile from across the world, no matter the caste or creed, for feasting, music and the celebration of good over evil.

Tihar Festival Kukur Tihar Kukur Puja For Dog

Tihar Festival

Tihar, the 'Festival of Lights', is celebrated in October/November in honour of the Goddess of Wealth, Laxmi. Over five days houses are decorated beautifully with oil lamps and candles, encouraging Goddess Laxmi to enter, whilst crows, dogs and cows are worshipped with garlands and food in thanks for their loyalty to humans.

Indra Festival

Indra Jātrā (Yenyā) Festival

Named after Lord Indra, the God of Rain, this festival held in August/September is celebrated by both Nepal’s Hindu and Buddhist communities. It sees eight days of street celebrations, including music, masked dancing of deities and demons, the display of sacred images, and the parade of Kumari, the Living Goddess, through the streets of Kathmandu.

Holi Festival and Religious Offerings

Holi/Fagu Festival

Celebrating the extermination of the demon Holika in Hindu beliefs, the festival known as Holi (or sometimes Fagu in Nepal) is a playful and vibrant display of colour. Water balloons and colour are thrown from houses, cars and by pedestrians, and smeared all over devotees in wild displays of frivolity throughout the streets.

Nepali Gastronomy

Fusing elements of Tibetan and Indian cuisine, Nepalese food reflects the country’s diverse topography and soil, with regional variations resulting in distinct dishes. From the cold-tolerant grains and yak meat of the Himalaya, to the rice accompanied lamb found in Thakali cuisine and the buffalo favoured by the Newaris, each ethnic group offers its own unique dishes that make travelling in Nepal a culinary adventure.

Food Momos Dumpling

Momo

This bite-size dumpling, filled with minced meat or vegetables, is a beloved staple of travellers to Nepal. Originating in Tibet, it was transformed using local ingredients by Newaris of the Kathmandu Valley and usually served with a spicy dipping sauce.

Food Thukpa Tibetan Noodle Soup

Thukpa

Another Tibetan dish that has been modified by the Nepalese is Thukpa, a noodle soup of meat and vegetables. In the Nepalese version garam masala and chilli is added to give it a spicy kick, although Tibetan-style Thukpa is also popular.

Food Dal Bhat Tarkari

Dal Bhat Tarkari

Dal Bhat Tarkari is a popular and wholesome lunchtime meal, found at local restaurants throughout the country. It combines dal with a selection of curries and is accompanied by steamed rice, chapati, pickled vegetables and yoghurt.

Shopping in Nepal

For handicrafts, the shops lining Kathmandu’s Thamel offer a little bit of everything, while nearby Bhaktapur is famed for its pottery and Patan known for its Traditional Craftsman’s Colony. Be aware that fake (and inferior quality) items are rapidly filtering in from China, so check the authenticity of goods before purchase.

Pokhara Market Scarfs

Cashmere/pashmina

Nepal has a long legacy of manufacturing garments made from cashmere and pashmina that stretches back more than 1,000 years. Scarves and shawls with nylon in the weave are widespread, while those with silk are of the highest quality.

Nepal Silver Bracelet

Silver

Silver crosses into Nepal from India and the quality of jewellery and ornate tableware is excellent. The market stalls of Thamel, Patan and Bhaktapur are a good starting point, with a number of artisan workshops selling intricate ‘one-off’ pieces.

Prayer Wheels In the Market

Traditional Handicrafts

Traditional handicrafts that reflect Nepal’s rich and diverse culture make for an ideal souvenir. Prayer wheels, singing bowls, pottery and trinkets, as well as the essential Nepal keep-sake - a string of prayer flags - can all be found in Kathmandu’s markets.

Recent earthquake and impact on tourist areas

On 25 April 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley and made headlines around the world. Thousands of people were killed and the country’s infrastructure, including a number of its cultural sites and trekking routes, were badly damaged. While reconstruction of many monuments and buildings are still ongoing, the majority of the country’s UNESCO sites have been re-opened, as have trekking routes. Life has returned to normal, but for a country that relied heavily on tourism, those considering visiting are encouraged to do so and show solidarity and support when it is most needed.
