Nepal Listed in 10 Places That Deserve More Travelers by the National Geographic
Nepal has been listed among the 10 places that deserve more travelers by National Geographic. Other nominated countries include Armenia, Nicaragua, Iran, Kosovo, Uzbekistan, Albania, Timor-Leste, Georgia, Tunisia, and Nepal is the third spot on the list.
Nepal has long been famous for adventure travel holidays. However, Nepal was hit by an earthquake last year, which caused the number of travelers to decline to some extent. But, as many countries, including the U.S. Department of State, canceled the travel warning to Nepal, Nepal's tourism industry gradually returned to normal and Nepal is entirely safe to travel now.
Stunning View of Nepal
There are a number of reasons why Nepal deserves more travelers. With the reputation as the "holy land of trekking", Nepal has a great wealth of trekking resources. Among all the trekking trails, the Annapurna Circuit is the most popular one. Besides trekking activities, travelers can also appreciate the charm of nature in the second largest city of Nepal, Pokhara. The Himalayan range can be seen by visiting Pokhara Valley. Another main attraction is Phewa Lake, the largest lake in Pokhara Valley. The shadows of Mount Machhapuchhre and Annapurna range are reflected on the smooth surface of the lake. It also offers an opportunity to experience the fun of boating and fishing on Phewa Lake. It will be an ideal choice for nature lovers to have a holiday in Pokhara.
In Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, there are a lot of sacred and historic attractions, and Swayambhunath Temple is one of them. Swayambhunath Temple is also known as Monkey Temple. It is an important pilgrimage site of Buddhists and the oldest relic site in Kathmandu Valley. According to legend, Sakyamuni had come to this site. There are a lot of monkeys living in the northwest parts of the temple, and the monkeys are not afraid of strangers, so it is called "Monkey Temple".
