Where is Nepal located?

If you are wondering where is Nepal, then here is an answer:

Nepal is a small country in between the two Asian giants India and China. Despite being small, just in the difference of 4 degrees latitude, this country gives you a different world in itself.

Geography of Nepal

Nepal is a mountainous country with hills, mountains and the Himalayas. The flat region of the south is called Terai region which covers approximate 17% of the area of Nepal. Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal lies in the hilly region which covers 68% of the area of Nepal.

And there is the Himalayan region in the north which is home to the highest mountains of the world including the mighty Mount Everest.

Amazing Nepal: Nepal - The Land of Superlatives

Tilicho lake(4919m) is at highest altitude in the world. Everest view Hotel is the highest hotel, Suligaudha the highest fall. Dana gorge in the Kali Gandaki river is the deepest gorge in the whole world. At 4000m, Changla Bhanjyang village in Humla village is the highest human inhabited village and Lukla(the gateway to Mt.Everest) is the highest mountain pass. Arun valley is the deepest valley, Simikot the highest administrative headquarter and Sagarmatha National Park is the Highest National Park in the world to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

So, Nepal is often referred as The Third pole. Planning a trip to Nepal? Make sure to include all these destinations.

Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal. Within Kathmandu valley lies three cities - Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur.

As it has the only international airport, Kathmandu is your first destination in Nepal in THE CITY OF TEMPLES.

When is the right time to visit Nepal

September - December is the best time to visit Nepal. The weather is moderate - not so hot and not so cold; and the mood is festive because of the onset of the greatest festivals of Nepalese - Dashain and Tihar. This is the time when the rivers will be flowing with cold water and the mountains will be seen shining in the dawn sunlight. The rare cute animals are out and this is the time when everyone can see those endangered animals riding on an elephant.

Things To Do in Nepal

As a mountainous country, Nepal has some fast-flowing swift rivers, dangerous gorges, deep valleys, snow-capped mountains and many other natural assets. The only bird found in the whole world - Spiney Babbler is found in the Sagarmatha National Park of Nepal. The only elephant breeding center in the whole world has been a boon to preserve the rare species and biodiversity.

When not to visit Nepal

Although Nepal is evergreen all the time, it is best to visit Nepal in September - November. January - April should be avoided because it is the peak time for load-shedding, the environment is dusty and windy and the trees of the national parks are left with no leaves at all. The rare animals are inside their home, so it is best not to visit Nepal in January - April. Neither it’s the right time for jungle safari, nor for any trekking.
