Nepal, sitting at the foot of Tibet and bordering India, contains diverse natural and urban landscapes. From the Himalayas on one side, to the forests of the Terai on the other, Nepal is a nature lover’s dream. And the capital of Kathmandu has some of the most captivating architecture in the country. Brightsun Travel offers spectacular cheap holidays to Nepal, from safari tours to the country’s many National Parks, to adventures into the foothills of the Himalayas, plus fantastic city breaks with a difference. Starting in Nepal’s capital city, Kathmandu, you could visit ancient temples like Boudhanath, which is one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the world, and Swayambhunath, which dates back thousands of years. Heading out from Kathmandu, you could pass through Nagarkot for front row seats of the Himalayas, or head to Patan, and experience Nepal’s city of arts and culture. Our safari tours take you into Chitwan National Park, or Bardia National Park, where you can roam mesmerising forests by foot or on elephant back, and spot tiger, rhino, leopard and wild elephants in their natural habitat.
If its mountain adventures you are after, in Nepal you can trek to the foot of the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, in the Everest Base Camp trek, and stay in traditional teahouses on the way. Around Mount Everest is Sagarmatha National Park, a protected area, where you might be lucky enough to spot the snow leopard or the lesser panda in the wild. A shorter trek from Kathmandu is the Langtang circuit, taking just 7 days, guiding you through beautiful rhododendron forests. Or, head to Nepal’s third largest city, Pokhara, and take the Annapurna trek and experience remote mountain communities and a mountain wilderness full of hot springs and waterfalls. The best time to experience the mountains of Nepal is between September and December, after the rainy season, when the air is clear and the views are breath-taking.
