Places to Visit in Nepal

Places to Visit in Nepal

Nepal is a beautiful country, but like any country not everywhere is just so. Here's our selection of varied places in Nepal. From ancient cities to traditional villages. Choose the places you'd like to visit in Nepal and we'll plan your tailor made Nepal holiday for you.


Colourful, chaotic and an assault on the senses-Nepal's capital city of Kathmandu is a mix of everything. Literally!


Separated from Kathmandu by the Bagmati River, this the 'city of beauty' is an architectural delight of temples and bahals


Stunning Newari architecture and incredibly atmospheric. Medieval Bhaktapur is a journey back in time. A 'Must see".


Dhulikhel is a real Newari town with great Himalayan mountain views and with the added bonus of the luxurious Dwarikas Dhulikhel Resort-a lifestyle retreat.


Dramatically situated on the rim of the Kathmandu Valley, the 'resort' of Nagarkot is renowned as one of the places to witness a panoramic Himalayan sunrise.

Shivapuri National Park

If crazy Kathmandu all sounds a bit too much, then the nearby Shivapuri Hills affords a heavenly, more peaceful respite. A haven for wildlife too!

Namobuddha & Panauti

Rural Panauti with its ornate temples dates back to the 14th Century. Nearby Namobuddha is one of the most sacred buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal.


Looking for the REAL, rural and unspoiled Nepal? This delightful hill village is just perfect to 'discover' genuine Nepal village life.


Perched high above the Trisuli River Valley commanding sweeping views of the Annapurna's and Manaslu. A charming, relaxed Newari mountain town.

Begnas Lake

Very close to Pokhara, but decidedly more tranquil, Begnas Lake as well as hill top Rupakot have spectacular mountain views.


Nepal's No.1 tourist resort. With its balmy, sub-tropical climate, lake and expaiisve Himalayan views Pokhara  is also Nepal's 'action' capital too.


The "Forbidden Kingdom" and a truly special part of Nepal. Jeep roads mean even fabled Lo Manthang is within reach to the non-trekker now.


Outlandishly located beneath Dhaulagiri, Thasang's eagles nest position high above the Kali Gandaki Valley with views of the Nilgiri's and Annapurna are sensational.


A jungle safari is the main reason people visit Chitwan, but the contrasting Terai lands of the Tharu tribe are fascinating in their own right. 


Birth place of Buddha and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lumbini has changed a lot in recent years & decidedly for the better. A place of pilgrimage

Neydo Monastery

A "spiritual retreat", the Neydo Tashi Choeling Monastery enjoys a serene location in the rural Kathmandu Valley by Hattiban Forest.


Remote Bardia is THE PLACE for the serious wildlife enthusiast. Generally regarded as the best Nepal National Park to see wild tigers.

Koshi Tappu

Renowned for its dazzling array of bird life and one of the few places in Nepal where wild elephants can still be found.
