Where is Nepal?













































Nepal is one of the important tourist destinations of the world. The Himalayas and the
scenic beauty are the prominent attractions to the tourists in Nepal. Nepal is recognized as the
country of Mount Everest (crown of the world), the birth place of Lord Buddha (apostle of
peace) and it is the landlocked country located between two giants countries India and china. It is
in rectangular in shape with the length of 885 kilometers east to west and 193 kilometers north to
south. The total area occupied by the country is 147,181 Square kilometers which accounts 0.03
percent of land area of the earth and 0.3 percent of Asia.Nepal is a unique country inhabited by multi-lingual, multi cultural and multi ethnic people
and there are 92 spoken languages and more than 100 ethnic groups. Nepal is one of the least
developed countries in the world and the capital of Nepal is ‘Kathmandu’ which is better known
as the city of temples.


When is the best season for visit in Nepal?













































The weather is probably the best guide for deciding when to plan your trip to Nepal.
October and November are considered the best times of the year. The monsoon will have just
ended, and clear skies with optimal temperature will prevail. The main festivals of Dashain and
Tihar (Hindu equivalent of Christmas in terms of festivity) fall during these months. However,
this is also the busiest tourist season, and the main tourist centers and trekking trails tend to be
crowded with travelers like you. The tourist flow ebbs a little, but not significantly, between the
winter months of December and mid-February. It catches up once again between mid-February
and mid-April. From mid-June to early October, it’s the monsoon, during which time it rains
almost everyday and most of the Himalayas are hidden behind the clouds. In short, plan to visit
Nepal between October and May, keeping in mind that October-November and February-March
are the best times (but crowded with other travelers)


How do I get to Nepal?













































In order to fly directly to Nepal from your home country, Tribhuvan International Airport
(TIA) in Kathmandu is the only international airport in Nepal. TIA has direct air link with
Shanghai, , Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Delhi, Dubai, Malaysia. Nepal Airlines (NAC),
Air India, Singapore Airlines, Thai are the airlines that carry most of the foreign travelers into
Kathmandu; and if you buy tickets from any other airlines, you will probably connect with one
of these airlines for the final leg of your flight.Alternatively, if you have time and enthusiasm, traveling overland to Nepal via India is an
option. British overland travel operators can take you from London to Kathmandu on a six to
eighteen week trip for anywhere between $1200 to $ 2500 depending upon the nature of your trip. You will travel from continental Europe through Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and
India to Nepal. For specific details on traveling overland from India to Nepal
