Nepal Tourist Place – MOST OF NEPAL’S BEST ATTRACTIONS ARE WITHIN EASY STRIKING DISTANCE OF KATHMANDU. With little time needed to get around, you can pack a lot into the short stay in Nepal.
Nepal Tourist Place in Kathmandu
Kathmandu makes a perfect base. You might spend two or three days exploring the city’s attractions. Wandering the maze-like alleys of the old city, marveling at the temples and palaces of Durbar square and striking out to the nearby
Buddhist stupas of Swayambhunath and Bodhnath. Just as simple is to spend the mornings in Kathmandu and the afternoons in the ancient Buddhist city of Patan half an hour distant by taxi. The predominantly Hindu city of Bhaktapur, about one hour away, where city and international efforts have achieved a time-warping preservation job on the local architecture.
Nepal Tourist Places To Visit
An excursion out of Kathmandu you will never forget involves an overnight stay at either Nagarkot or Dhulikhel. Both towns are on ridges that offer panoramic views of the Himalayas. Nagarkot has the best views, but Dhulikhel has better access and is quicker to get to (around two hours by bus).
You can arrive in the late afternoon, check into one of the many hotels or guesthouses – there’s something to suit all budgets and tastes. then settle down somewhere comfortable perhaps the verandah of your hotel room or the rooftop of your guesthouse to watch shifting colors play over the Himalayas as the sun goes down. The next morning you should be up early to watch a repeat performance (though no two are ever the same) in the light of the rising sun.
Best places to visit in Nepal
A short holiday in Nepal would seem to make a trek out of the question. But this is not entirely true. There are some magical day-walks you can do that serve as the perfect trekking sampler, leaving you fulfilled but hankering for the day you can come back and do something longer.
One of the best day-walks in Kathmandu is the Namobuddha trek out of Dhulikhel (see above). The beauty of this six-hour circuit hike is not only that it provides stunning views of the Himalayas, but that it takes you through villages with tea houses, through pine forests, to a stupa, and past water mills just as the longer treks do.

If wildlife is your main interest, even a safari on elephant back at Royal Chitwan National Park need not be out of the question on a short trip. Chitwan is just five hours away from Kathmandu by taxi or bus; providing you arrive in Kathmandu by mid-afternoon, you can be in Chitwan Park by the evening, ready to mount your elephant the next morning. And if time is of the essence, don’t worry: two days on the back of an elephant is more than enough for most people.
