If you are asking what to do while in Nepal, then definitely that’s the wrong question. As there are so many things one can do in Nepal that you will lose count. However, which ones are the ones you would to do, definitely depends on your taste and what you would like to do.
Ranging from small evening walks to trekking, seeing natural parks, taking short cooking classes churning out Nepalese and Indian dishes, taking spa, shopping for souvenirs and seeking the blessings of God while visiting many of those temples and monasteries ….. . In fact the list is really good one of the kind of things one can do.
Making a wish list is a work you can do. Here is a guide to Top Ten Things to do in Nepal:
1. Be in Thamel
Being in Thamel means enjoying the night – life of Nepal to its fullest. Wine flows in and music is on its top. But beware of the high – class pick pockets who make their smart entry in such places!
2. Go on Hidden Treks
There are Treks of Nepal which are very popular and make their way in every tour itenary. But there are treks which are silent and not so popular. Take a peek into these treks and see the beauty of Everest in a completely new way. But, make sure these are guided and not tailored out by thugs!
3. Bishal Bazar
The best place to shop in Kathmandu. End – end shops, vibrant with dark striking colors, faces blooming and highly buzzling place; it’s just the place you have been looking for shopping. Buy local stuff here, dresses, small idols of lord Buddha and fashion jewellery.
4. Bike Tours
Biking in Nepal is like biking in any other hill stations of the world; but this is a must if one really wishes to see the beauty of landscapes in a different way.
It’s not as famous as Durbar Square, but it has got the uniqueness which no other place has. The floating God or sleeping god on water is simply amazing. In fact, you must not have seen Buddha like this anywhere before. So silent and serene even the architectures of today keep upon amusing the beauty and details of this magnificent piece of art! Be here not just to see just another idol of Lord Buddha; but to get experience of a lifetime.
