Best things to see and do for one week in Nepal
What to see in one week
Since Nepal is a relatively up-and-coming tourist destination, a lot of visitors are taken back by the sheer variety and amount of incredible experiences to be had here. Nepal’s rich cultural and religious heritage mean that the country is dotted with shrines and temples, some enormous and ornate and some hidden at the peaks of rugged mountains. Take a tour of some of the finest cultural sites, such as the Pashupatinath Temple - one of the most important Hindu temples in Nepal. Here you can watch priests, tradesmen and visitors go about their daily lives as well as experiencing the cultural differences that you may encounter. If you’re looking to visit cities and towns then Kathmandu and Patan should be at the top of your list. The two are separated by a river, with Kathmandu being the largest. Take a guided tour of Kathmandu and its various sites before heading to Patan to discover the place for yourself and to explore the huge concentration of temples here. Perhaps Nepal’s most famous area - Mount Everest - is not to be missed out of any 7 day itinerary. If you’re up to the challenge and an experienced hiker then you can even climb to the base camp and beyond. If however, you’d rather not exhaust yourself then you can take a helicopter tour of Everest and enjoy the view of a lifetime in a thrilling ride.
What to do in one week
Nepal is the perfect destination for people who enjoy action packed trips, with one week giving you enough time to pack your time full of exciting experiences. Visit Pokhara for fishing, mountain biking, trekking and even paragliding before heading back to your accommodation in the charming lakeside town. Those who like mountain biking should head to the Kathmandu Valley for a huge amount of trails for different abilities and preferences. You will never have mountain biked in a location quite like this one and you’re sure to be thrilled by your breathtaking surroundings as you speed around Kathmandu’s trails. A safari tour is another excellent way to spend your time and you’ll be able to see tigers, rhinos, elephants and much more. An added benefit is that, since Nepal isn’t widely publicised for its safaris, you’ll be able to enjoy an incredible experience without the crowds of Safaris on the African continent. You’ll feel as though you’ve found a hidden gem in this amazing country.
Best time to travel to Nepal for a week
The weather in Nepal varied greatly from season to season, with the monsoon season falling between June and September. During these months, humidity levels rise and clouds form, obscuring the amazing mountain views that the country normally boasts. Aside from these few months, you can visit Nepal at any time and you will be rewarded with incredible panoramic views. The weather can become a bit colder, especially at night, in January and February, but this means that views are even clearer and that generally trails and attractions are less crowded. Whenever you decide is the best time to visit Nepal, as soon as you leave you’ll be counting down the days until your next visit.
