Best places to visit in Nepal

Nepal is a country blessed with unique geographical and topographical features. There are many best places to visit in Nepal, depending upon one’s interests and timeframe. What makes them so attractive is something for travellers to discover themselves. From the highest mountains in the world to biodiversity hotspots, from deepest gorges and freshwater lakes to tropical forests of the flat plains and from rich architectural beauty of Kathmandu Valley to the sublime Buddhist monasteries, Nepal is a journey on its own.

You can categorize best places to visit in Nepal both in terms of their popularity and their cultural or natural richness. Trip Advisor has repeatedly called Mount Everest world’s number one travel destination, Pokhara as the most favorite destination of Nepal and Kathmandu Valley as a live cultural museum. But it all depends what you fancy and what your taste is. Art lovers would most probably want to visit Kathmandu Valley as opposed to adventure lovers who dream of being on the base camp of Mt. Everest.
