For all the amateur trekkers out there, you need not worry as many of these trekking routes can be both for the experienced and amateur trekkers. Likewise, beginners can also opt for short treks which can be a great way to explore Nepal.
Despite the popular routes, Nepal also has many restricted areas that the government doesn’t allow trespassing in order to preserve the natural and cultural heritage. Likewise, certain areas with complex topography are made off-limits to avoid accidents. These areas being far-flung and isolated have many hidden gems that are yet to be explored. However, if you wish we can make amends to access these exceptional, adventurous, isolated, and restricted areas where hardly few trekkers are seen, whilst ensuring your safety.
We are just a click away!
Mentioning the Himalayas, Forbes has depicted the best way to enjoy Mt. Everest - sign up for a breakfast by taking a helicopter up into the Himalayas and enjoying a champagne toast at 180,000 feet.
Fancy, aren’t we?
Afterall is a bucket list even worth it if it doesn’t have either something bizarre or something extravagant?
Forbes further states:
“An enticing influx of luxury travel experiences have arrived in Nepal, and it would be a shame not to capitalize”.
The lofty snow-capped mountains and its breathless view make Nepal an ideal destination for not just a trekker, but also for someone who romanticizes nature for its beauty. While trekking or visiting the Himalayan region, visitors can also explore the culture and lifestyle of people from different ethnic communities. Likewise, people can also come across various temples and monasteries that reflect the art and history of rural Nepal. With so much to see, this new year can be a great chance to escape the chaotic and hectic life of the city.
Therefore, Don’t think twice, just put on your hiking boots and get ready to see the unseen and remote destinations.
Despite being small, Nepal has a remarkable diversity of landscape and variations in the climate which makes it suitable for a wide range of flora and fauna to exist. The Terai in the Southern region of Nepal is home to many popular national parks; The Chitwan (meaning 'heart of the jungle') National Park situated in the southern lowlands in Nepal, is one of the finest wildlife reserves in Asia. It is home to more than 700 species of birds and over 70 species of wild creatures including the endangered Royal Bengal Tiger, elephants, one-horned white rhinos, sloths and gharial crocodiles.
Tracking tigers’ footprints, cruising downriver safaris, and driving around for Wildlife safaris will give you a chance to observe the animals in their natural habitat; you need to be attentive for the sights and sounds of tigers or rhinos as making this an intoxicating experience. Even two whole days won’t be enough as you will never want to leave this magical place.
“Walk alongside the elephants through the Chitwan jungle to the banks of the Narayani River, and enjoy a Gin & Tonic while observing a spectacularly pink sunset over the water. “, Forbes magazine writes.
Apart from Chitwan, other national parks like Bardiya and Khaptad are bound to spell you with its enchanting beauty and charm.

Most people regard Nepal only as an adventure destination like Everest base camp trekking, but Nepal is more than just backpack tourism.
The magazine has mentioned Nepal of having luxury accommodation resorts, namely Dwarika hotel and resort of Kathmandu as well as Dhulikhel. It has entitled them as “ the living museums”. These places have become the epitome of Nepal’s rich art and culture.
Oscar Wilde rightly said, “Life imitates art, more than art imitates life.” These living museums imitate art, turning art into reality for the entire world to see.
If you are someone who is interested in art and architecture, then Nepal can be a great place to draw inspiration for your very own projects.
Apart from the aesthetics, the ambiance of these hotels gives you the perfect luxurious vacation that one can see in movies like “Crazy Rich Asians”.
Forbes also mentions Chitwan and Bardiya safari camps as few of the high-end luxurious stays in Nepal.

Nepal has many spiritual retreats to be away from noise and distraction, and into a place of spiritual refreshing and renewing.
“The Dhulikhel’s Dwarika has many yoga packages that include a Meditation Maze, a Himalayan Rock Salt Room and Chakra Sound Therapy,” Forbes magazine writes. Likewise, there are many other spiritual retreats that can be great for spiritual cleansing and meditation.
