The beauty of Nepal in terms of touristic appeal and charm is incomparable and unmatched. You can travel all around the world, but Nepal's sheer diversity of natural and cultural adversities is surprisingly different from others. Since the beginning of tourism in Nepal in the late 1950s, Nepal has always stayed as one of the world's best travel destinations for both budget and luxury travelers. Any travel-related adventure or recreational activity can be done in Nepal without any slight chance of inaccuracy.

Starting from the northern belt, you will find the legendary Himalayas, which have remained unchanged and unbothered by the modernization of human kinds. The public spectacle of just watching the snowcapped mountains beaming up with pride and excitement is sure to make traveling in Nepal an enjoyable experience for anyone wishing to give their life a break and go for an exciting adventure inside Nepal. Some of the world's highest mountains like Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Nuptse are all present inside the Himalayas of Nepal. Furthermore, there's Ama Dablam, considered by many elite and novice travelers the most beautiful mountain in the world.

Heading down south, numerous other travel destinations and locations are well-packed with their kind of magnetism. After all, the lively ecosystem of Nepal's phenomenal Terai region is unbeatable regarding wildlife and vegetation. Various rare species of wild animals and plants call the southern plains of Nepal their homeland. So, if you were to travel down to Terai and visit Chitwan National Park or Bardiya National Park, then you would get to travel inside a lush green verdant jungle area covering a massive chunk of land in the southern territory of Nepal. You can also try jungle safari and elephant rides while staying in Terai.


However, many people just come to Nepal during peak tourist seasons. By that, I mean during the Autumn and Spring seasons. So yes, there are a lot of benefits and advantages of visiting Nepal during those two peak seasons. But I have to inform you that traveling in Nepal is something that doesn't have to be strained and limited to weather and season. Instead Nepal is a country where traveling can be done throughout the year without any restrictions.

The trails are quainter as fewer tourists come to Nepal during winter. The trekking regions are also much less crowded, and so if you are someone who wants to travel alone with fewer people around you, then coming to Nepal during winter will be an excellent decision for your self-fulfillment. With that in mind, you have to understand some benefits of traveling in Nepal during the winter (December to February).

But what I will recommend you to do is the 'Heli Tour' if you want to do some thrilling and out of the ordinary. Trekking, touring, and hiking are good for you. So keep doing that. But if you wish to do something more exciting and awe-inspiring, you can book a Heli Tour for a breathtaking view of the Himalayan mountains. You can fly over to the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar in 30 minutes. And witness a glamorous view of Mt. Everest and other surrounding mountains. You can choose different destinations as well so there are several variations for you to choose from if you plan to go on a Heli tour in Nepal.

Top treks for off-season

If you have read the above points, then you will conclude that trekking can be done in Nepal throughout the year even in winter times. Well, you can avoid some high-altitude treks, but several other treks can be as adventurous and memorable. Trekking, in its simplicity, is a great way to explore Nepal. No doubt about that. You get to meet different people, spend a couple of your days inside some popular villages, witness the daily struggle of rural communities and learn a thing or two about Nepal's rich culture, history, and traditions.

Among such treks include Ghorepani Poonhill Trek. It is one of those treks that is very easy to do without much physical exertion. Furthermore, you won't have to travel at high altitudes and risk getting altitude sickness. So, it's pretty doable even in the winter season as well. In addition, you will watch the breathtaking mountain views of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri, and Mt. Fishtail. Similarly, you can try the Everest Panorama Trek and Khopra Ridge Trek.
