Get dependable travel insurance for your holiday to Nepal
Known for its access into the Himalayas, Nepal is a breath-taking adventure for explorers and trekkers alike.
Top 5 Things to see and do in Nepal
1. Trek to Mount Everest's Base Camp
Mount Everest is the highest mountain above sea level in the world, and so it was predestined to be the biggest destination for climbers and adventurers. Don't fear if you aren't an experienced climber - there are also shorter and safer travel routes for the less experienced.
2. Fly over the Himalayas
If you want to experience the Himalayas from a distance, booking an Everest flight might be the best option for you. You will be able to experience the majesty of the mountains from a safer, and comparatively warmer, distance.
3. See the animals at Chitwan National Park
Chitwan is a bird watcher's paradise, with over 500 species of migratory bird. Not only this, but Chitwan is Nepal's first national park, covered in lush forests and the chance to spot the elusive Bengal tiger.
4. Explore the Temples of Kathmandu
The capital's temples are often overlooked. However, they are must-see destinations that are tremendous in their own right.
5. Visit the Birthplace of Buddha
There are beautiful temples and monasteries in Nepal and visiting the picturesque birthplace of Buddha will allow you to explore the cultural and religious importance behind them.
Is Nepal safe for tourists?
Nepal has a low serious crime rate. However, you must still take precautions for petty thefts in tourist areas and at night. In terms of mountaineering, Everest can be dangerous for the ill-prepared and it is important to take out travel insurance that covers all possible emergency costs such as helicopter transport.
What injections do I need for Nepal?
All travellers will need routine vaccines plus hepatitis A, typhoid and tetanus and some travellers may need extra vaccines. Information about which can be found on the NaTHNaC website.
What is the best time of year to visit Nepal?
The best time to visit is in the months of October and November as these are outside of monsoon season and clear skies make for easier trekking weather.
