"Nepal" Nepal by Robmj

Nepal Travel Guide: 4,253 reviews and 11,998 photos


Nepal has been a destination for many a traveller since it opened its borders in the 1950's.

Many come to see the Himalayan mountain ranges and trek through numerous areas all with stunning scenery and friendly locals. Everest and Everest base camp are drawcards as is the Annapurna Circuit, one of the World's greatest walks.

Temples, Monasteries, Yaks, Tigers, the tough sherpa people and a number of adventure activities make this a real tourism magnet.

Trip Summary

A friend and myself visited briefly for a few weeks, primarily to complete part of the Annapurna walking circuit. We arrived in Kathmandu but quickly left to the start of the trail and around 12 days later were in Pokhara for a few days relaxation before heading back to the urban swamp that is Kathmandu.

Nepal is incredibly cheap to visit, its economy is recovering from 10 years of the people's war and under-development in infrastructure. April, is the spring and offered us warmer temperatures and clear skies, although we did strike heavy snow and ice up on the day before crossing the Thorung La Pass on the Annapurna circuit. Also, pre-monsoon, the clear views of the Himalayan ranges from Pokhara were limited to a few minutes at 5.30am! I believe after the Monsoon is the best time to get the crystal clear views in this part.

Must see more

Having experienced Nepal briefly, I would certainly like to go back to different areas for the superb trekking. Around Jomsom looked interesting, its the start point to the Mustang region which looks like a future trip.

I'd also like to get down the the Chitwan National Park, a few Tigers and Rhino plus maybe down south over the Indian border.
