Boarded to the north by the mighty Himalayan Mountains that sweep down to the great Gangetic Plains of the south is an enigmatic country called Nepal. A small, landlocked country, it lies between China and India and holds an incredible wealth of diversity both cultural and natural. Its unique geographical position and the range of elevation produces some of the most incredible Eco regions in the world containing an abundance of natural resources.

This extraordinary range of elevations is compressed within 200 km north to south, and 800 km east to west, and is divided into three regions: Himal or mountains, the hilly regions, and the Terai. The Himal region, comprised of the Himalayan Mountains in the north, holds some of the tallest mountains in the world, including the tallest of them all, Mt Everest at 8,848 meters above sea level. The hilly region is the transition from mountains, to the Terai of the south which is a low flat area of mostly grasslands and waterways with smaller hills before reaching into India and the Indo-Gangetic Plain.

This remarkable change in elevation has enormous effects on climate, biodiversity, and even populations of people. Nepal experiences weather from cold alpine conditions in the north to incredibly hot temperatures in the south during certain seasons. The Himalayan Mountains to the north block much of the cold winds from Central Asia, and the warm moist air from the Indian Ocean of the summer creates monsoons that sweep up from the south. Nepal has all four seasons: summer, autumn, winter, and spring. Most travelers enjoy visiting during the spring and autumn due to the low rainfall, and generally warm temperatures. These two seasons are also the most favorable for traveling and trekking in the Himalayas.

The diversity of the flora and fauna create astonishing ecosystems housing habitat for some of the rarest wildlife on earth such as the Snow leopard, Red panda, Indian elephant, and One-horned rhinoceros among many other species. The country also is home to many ethnic groups and the Nepalese people are not a homogenous population, though the harmony within the country is astounding considering the variety of languages, cultures, and religions residing within the small boundaries. The historical significance of Nepal is also reflected in the myriad of designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, most of which can be found in the ancient city of Kathmandu and the surrounding valley.

The spectacular natural beauty, the rich cultural and historical value, and the incredible mountain scenery all create a truly exceptional and irreplaceable country. For these reasons and more is why Nepal consistently rises to the top of must-visit places for world travelers.

 Helpful Hints

  • Travelling once you are in Nepal is reasonably priced and can be done by both land and air. Air can be an excellent way to travel longer distances as the road system in Nepal is of poor quality. Bus transport in general can be of two varieties, the tourait class buses which are comfortable and usually air conditioned, and the local microbus which are overcrowded, uncomfortable, and slow.
  • The currency is Nepalese Rupees, and in cities, and even larger villages in the countryside there are currency exchange counters. The daily budget can be anywhere from US $50 to US $150, but of as always you can spend more or less per day depending on where you at, how you travel, and accommodations.
  • Wi-Fi is widely available. You would be hard pressed to find a hostel or hotel in any village or city without it. Surprisingly even at Everest Base Camp there is 4G!
