Nepal, a landlocked country located in South Asia, is home to some of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world, including the Himalayas, the highest mountain range on the planet. Nepal is also rich in cultural heritage, with ancient temples, traditional villages, and vibrant festivals that showcase the country's unique identity. If you're planning to travel to Nepal, here's what you need to know.

When to Visit Nepal

Nepal has four distinct seasons: spring (March to May), summer (June to August), autumn (September to November), and winter (December to February). The best time to visit Nepal depends on what you want to do. If you're interested in trekking, the autumn season is the most popular, with clear skies and mild temperatures. The spring season is also a good time for trekking, with beautiful blooming flowers and rhododendrons. Summer is the monsoon season, with heavy rain and muddy trails, but it's a good time to visit if you're interested in rafting or jungle safaris. Winter is cold and dry, but it's a good time for those interested in sightseeing or mountaineering.

Getting to Nepal

The main gateway to Nepal is Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, the capital city. Many airlines offer direct flights to Kathmandu from major cities in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. If you're coming from India, you can also enter Nepal by road or by air from major Indian cities like Delhi, Kolkata, or Varanasi.

Visa Requirements

Foreign nationals need a visa to enter Nepal, which can be obtained on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport or at the land borders. You can also apply for a visa online before your trip. The visa fee varies depending on the length of your stay, but it's usually around $30 for 15 days, $50 for 30 days, and $125 for 90 days.

Things to Do in Nepal

Trekking is one of the main attractions of Nepal, with popular treks like the Everest Base Camp Trek or the Annapurna Circuit Trek. For those interested in mountaineering, Nepal is home to eight of the ten highest peaks in the world. Other popular activities in Nepal include white-water rafting, paragliding, jungle safaris, and cultural tours of ancient temples and traditional villages.

Nepal is generally a safe country for tourists, but it's important to take certain precautions. Trekking alone or at night is not recommended, and it's important to hire a licensed guide or porter if you're planning a trek. In cities, be aware of pickpocketing and petty crime.

Nepal is a fascinating country with a rich cultural heritage and some of the most breathtaking natural wonders on the planet. With the right preparation and planning, traveling to Nepal can be an unforgettable experience.

Tour: Iraqi Kurdistan
My recent trip in Iraq organized by Penguin was excellent from start to end. Both Penguin tour guide (Nessi) and the local guide (Fahad) managed all topics efficiently and facilitated an amazing experience for the group. Now I dream about visiting the Northern part of the country, too.


Tour: Socotra Island Adventures (Yemen)
Thanks for everything in terms of your work and help with this trip to Yemen. It was an amazing experience - one I would recommend to almost anyone. By the numbers of people who travelled to the island, it is only going to get more exposure. The local company was very good - so you can have no problems with them at all. I was really lucky though - there were only 2 of us on the trip - and it was a really nice experience. I will continue to work with Penguin in getting ideas for great places to travel.
