Beauty of Nepal in terms of touristic appeal and charm is incomparable and unmatched. You can go and travel all around the world but the sheer diversity of natural and cultural adversities in Nepal is surprisingly different from others. Since the beginning of tourism in Nepal from the late 1950’s, Nepal has always stayed as one of the world’s best travel destination for both budget and luxurious travelers. Any kind of travel related adventure, recreational activities can be done in Nepal without any slight chance of inaccuracy.
Starting from the norther belt, you will find the legendary Himalayas which have remained unchanged and unbothered by the modernization of human kinds. The general spectacle of just watching the snowcapped mountains beaming up with pride and excitement is sure to make traveling in Nepal a very fun, enjoyable experience for anyone who wishes 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 which is considered by many elite and novice travelers as the most beautiful mountain in the world.
Heading down south, there are other numerous travel destination and locations that are well packed with their own kind of magnetism. After all the lively ecosystem of Nepal’s phenomenal Terai region is unbeatable in terms of wildlife and vegetation. Various rare species of wild animals and plants call the southern plains of Nepal their homeland.

You can try jungle safari and elephant ride as well while staying in Terai.
However, many people just come to Nepal in peak touristic seasons. By that I mean during Autumn and Spring seasons. Yes, there are a lot of benefits and advantages of visiting Nepal during those two peak seasons. But I just have to inform you that traveling in Nepal is something that doesn’t have to be strained and limited to weather and season. Rather Nepal is a country where traveling can be done all throughout the year without much restrictions.
The trails are quainter as less number of tourists come in Nepal during winter season. The trekking regions are also much less crowded and so if you are someone who wants to travel alone with less people around you then coming to Nepal during winter will be a great decision for your self fulfilment. With that in mind, you have to understand that there are some benefits of traveling in Nepal during winter season (December to February).
