What is the best thing about Nepal?
Someone once asked me what is the best thing about Nepal that truly is unique and awe-inspiring. To answer that question, I simply replied “Everything!”. He was stunned to hear me say that. However, I took my time and explain to him that why I think everything about Nepal is a best thing. It doesn’t matter if you are a foreign traveler or just a local tourist trying to explore Nepal. As long as you search, you will always find something worth taking back from your experiences in Nepal.
While that may not be enough for you. Here, I will try my best to highlight out the points that I think are the best things about Nepal.
History, Culture and Festivity
Let me start my blog with this. Nepal as you might know, is a country full of rich history and culture. Diversity within Nepal comes with its own diverse history and culture that are truly exceptional. If you follow up with all the religion, caste, people, and place inside Nepal. Then you will attain a great ideology that binds all Nepalese together. Even the locals who call Nepal their home, find Nepal to be a very distinct nation where there’s so much to learn and relish in. Besides that, you can find joyous festivity going on throughout the nation. Dashain, Tihar and Holi are some of the major festivals of Nepal which must not be missed if you are traveling in Nepal. For these things, you can adjust with the historical, cultural and festivity to observe the presence of Nepalese culture and tradition.
Naturally gifted travel destinations
Secondly, Nepal has a lot to offer in terms of pure naturally gifted travel and trek destinations. If you ever find yourself thinking about a place to travel then you must bring Nepal in there. No matter what, travelers seem to get fascinated and intrigued by the charming villages and routes of Nepal. Moreover, the northern Himalayas make Nepal even more elusive for foreigners to visit. Just imagine yourself trekking to the (EBC) base camp of the world’s highest mountain- Mt. Everest. Filled with dramatic landscapes and jaw-dropping snow mountains. Here you will find the sole purpose of your life. And with that discover the true gift of nature before returning back.
Exotic local food and cuisines
If there’s one thing you would love about Nepal. Then that thing will often times be the food. Cooked and prepared in a customary manner by local chefs. You get to taste the authentic taste of Nepalese cuisines while traveling in Nepal. Whether it be the famous “Dal Bhat Tarkari” or the spice rich “MO: MO”. There is a lot for each and every person. Yes! You can pay in huge sum for a 5-star quality food. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Nepalese food during trekking or exploring different corners of Nepal. Even when you are high up in the Himalayas. Or at the southern belt of Terai. You will always get place where you can enjoy exotic local food and cuisines of Nepal.
Hospitality and friendliness of Nepalese
Lastly, you can never leave out the genuine hospitality and friendliness of Nepalese people. As you travel and stay in different places, the mutual feeling of respect will never get lost in Nepal. Like any other country you visit, without the presence of pleasant local people and communities, Nepal too would not have gained mass popularity amongst travelers from all over the world. Even if you are traveling solo or trekking with a group, Nepalese are sure to enjoy assisting you throughout your journey. Nepalese understand the importance of tourism. Therefore, they make sure that they reflect a good picture of Nepal through their actions and behavior.
I can go even further and explain a lot more. But like I said, these are the things that makes Nepal stand out from the rest. So, if you know about them then you are all set to get your journey started in Nepal. And maybe you can even tell me all about your travel days in the comments below.
