Ultimate Nepal Tour Packages Guide: Discover the Best of Nepal’s Beauty and Adventure

Published: 9th Dec, 2019

Nepal is often listed as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Have you wondered why? The answer is that Nepal has everything for every traveler. Moreover, the diversity of Nepal tour packages is one of the main reasons behind its popularity.

A variety of Nepal trip packages can be designed as per your interest and requirements. Tours here range from adventure, scenic, wildlife, and cultural, to name a few. Furthermore, you may customize your Nepal tour package to include different genres.

You may combine a cultural tour and an adventure tour or a cultural and scenic tour or even cultural, scenic, and adventure tours.

Here are the guide to varieties of Nepal travel Packages.

1. Adventurous Tours

Do you love adventure? If you do so, then Nepal is the best destination for some dare and adventure.

Normally, adventure trips include hiking, trekking, rafting, mountain biking, or a combination of a few of these activities.  

a) Trekking

Nepal is blessed with most of the highest mountains in the world. Also, Nepal has the best trekking on the planet. Hence, trekking in Nepal is one of the most popular adventure activities.

Almost two-thirds of the trekkers make it to the Annapurna region. The reason behind this Annapurna trek is that it is not strenuous. Furthermore, the spectacular scenery along with the easy access make this country the number one trekking destination in Nepal.

Furthermore, the Annapurna region has a number of trails. Some of the trails take only a few days to complete, and some of the trails last for two weeks. This makes the Annapurna trek very flexible.

Therefore, if you wish to include an Annapurna trek in your tour package, just let your travel agent know the number of days you wish to trek in this region. The price will also depend on the same.

In addition, trekking in the Annapurna region will not require any prior experience.

You may combine a cultural tour and an adventure tour, or a cultural and scenic tour, or even cultural, scenic, and adventure tours.

On the other hand, equally fascinating is the Everest region, in the north-east of the country. However, due to altitude and distance from trail heads, it makes shorter treks less viable. For many trekkers, the ultimate goal of trekking in the Everest region is to reach the Everest Base Camp, which is an 11- to 12-day round trip from Lukla, which is the starting point of the Everest Base Camp trek.

The other trekking routes are located in the Helambu and Langtang regions. However, these trails are less dramatic, but conveniently close to Kathmandu.

b) Hiking

Many people use “hiking” and ” trekking” as if they were synonyms. However, and even if both of them are adventurous activities, there are some important differences.

Hiking trips last from 2 to 3 hours to 6 to 7 hours. It involves walking up and down an established trail. However, by the end of the day, you will be back at your hotel. Similarly, trekking in Nepal lasts anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks or more. However, if you are trekking, you will be stopping somewhere along the trail to spend the night. These are also known as “tea-house treks.” You will be back at the hotel only after completing your trek.

You may customize your Nepal tour package to include both hiking and trekking. In fact, it is a perfect combination. Hiking before your trek will get you warmed up and stretch those muscles. This will make the trek much easier and more enjoyable.

There are numerous hiking trails in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

However, Kathmandu offers you a variety of options.

c) Rafting

Rafting is another popular adventure activity in Nepal. Furthermore, Nepal is one of the best destinations for whitewater rafting.

These fast-flowing rivers originate from the mountains, and rafting on one of them is a once-in-a lifetime experience. Rafting can be a day-trip or a multi-day trip. If you are a beginner, then you can choose a day rafting trip, which will be one of the highlights of your Nepal travel package.

Furthermore, your raft follows the river through green terraced hills, jungles, and villages. Further, your rafting guide will motivate you to ride through every rapid with a smile on your face.

On the other hand, if you are a real rafting enthusiast and have a number of days, a multi-rafting trip is best for you.

Multi-day rafting trip takes you deep into the wilderness, allowing you to experience the landscape and its diversity. At the end of the day, enjoy setting camp on the beach of the river, enjoying a bonfire and a tasty meal.

Nepal Adventure Trip is our suggested Nepal vacation package with rafting.

d) Mountain Biking

Mountain biking is one of the best ways to get up close to nature and culture. The long and scenic routes will definitely require a high level of fitness. However, there are plenty of scenic routes around Kathmandu and Pokhara where you can ride. These are relaxed village-to-village rambles and downhill rides.

Furthermore, it is always a pleasure to get away from the crowded streets. Nepal’s diverse terrain and its many tracks and trails are ideal for mountain biking.

The Kathmandu valley rim offers the most exciting mountain biking in Nepal. Further, with its numerous trails, tracks, and back roads, mountain biking is the best way to explore Kathmandu city, the surrounding countryside, and villages.

Even today, there are many villages in the Kathmandu Valley that are rarely visited by tourists. The only convenient way to visit these villages is by mountain bike.

Different tours in Nepal include mountain biking trips. These Nepal trips can be customized as per your fitness level.

2. Scenic Tours

No doubt, Nepal is one of the best travel destinations due to its scenic beauty. Various destinations in the hilly region of Nepal offer spectacular scenery. If you are looking forward to a scenic tour in Nepal, Pokhara city, Bandipur town, and Nagarkot hill are the highlights of the tour.

a) Pokhara

After Kathmandu, Pokhara is the second most visited destination in Nepal. In fact, in the future, if there is an international air terminal, no doubt this place will be the first choice for most travelers.

This “City of Lakes and Mountains” has been attracting tourists for a very long time for its beautiful emerald lakes and closer views of the mountains.

Furthermore, its relaxing vibe makes this place very romantic. You may spend the entire day holding a beer and enjoying the serenity of this place.

Also, Pokhara city has become an adventure sports hub for both domestic and international travelers.

Here, you can enjoy a variety of adventurous activities, such as paragliding, zip-flyer, ultra-light flight, and a helicopter ride to Annapurna Base Camp. These activities will offer you some dramatic views of landscapes and mountains.

Furthermore, if you are not into adventure, you may enjoy a popular viewpoint in Pokhara. Sarangkot is famous for its sunrise views and closer views of the mountains.

Moreover, during the peak tourist season, thousands of visitors line up here to get their first view of the sun’s rays striking the mountains.

b) Nagarkot

Just 1.5 hours drive from Kathmandu until you arrive at the pristine destination of Nagarkot. Very close to the crowded Kathmandu city, this place is equally famous for an unhindered view of the Himalayan range, sunrise, and sunset views.

Mostly, tourists stay one night in Nagarkot to view the early morning sunrise the next day.

A trip to Nagarkot will be much more rewarding between October and December. Furthermore, these are the peak tourist seasons in Nepal. Hence, if you are planning an overnight stay, make sure to pre-book the accommodation.

However, from June to September, you should be very lucky to catch more than a glimpse through the clouds of some snow-capped mountains.

If you are traveling to Nepal for a short scenic tour, Nagarkot is one of the best options. Here, you can spend the day in Nagarkot walking around the villages and meeting the local people.

No doubt, Nagarkot is one of the most relaxing and scenic destinations in Nepal.

c) Bandipur

Bandipur is a place where culture meets scenery. Providing equally majestic views of the Himalayas, this hill-top town is a prominent Newari town.

This prosperous town is reflected by the solid architecture of the commercial buildings and temples. A stone-paved, narrow street connects different hotels, shops, and houses.

Today, it is a perfect place to get the feel of Newari town life. Who knows, within the next five years, if it will be ruined by concrete jungles and fume-belching vehicles?

This town lies in a very convenient location between Kathmandu and Pokhara. A one-night stay will be quite an experience.

3. Wildlife Tours

Most tourists overlook wildlife tours in Nepal. It is quite unimaginable, in a country famous for its soaring Himalayas, to have a subtropical region famous for wildlife tours in Nepal.

However, Nepal proves you wrong. Southern Nepal covers 19% of the total area of Nepal. This Terai region of the country is perhaps the last holding ground for the endangered one-horned rhinoceros and the elusive Bengal tiger.

Furthermore, Nepal provides one of the best wildlife experiences in Asia.

There are various wildlife reserves in this area. Among them, the most accessible and most visited one is Chitwan National Park. This park is one of the best preserved wildlife reserves in Asia.

Other popular national parks include Bardia National Park and the wildlife reserve of Koshi Tappu. Although these places provide more opportunities for wildlife spotting, they are the least visited due to their accessibility.

However, for those who make it to Bardia, wildlife spotting is at its best there.

4. Cultural Tours

Cultural tours in Nepal emphasize visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites, historical monuments, people, and their lifestyle.

a) Kathmandu

With numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites, cultural monuments, and people of different ethnic groups, Kathmandu is a focal point for cultural tours in Nepal. Here, walking through the winding alleys, you will get to observe beautiful hidden courtyards, timeworn temples, and shrines.

Kathmandu is a melting pot of people belonging to different ethnic groups. One of the biggest metropolitan cities in Nepal, Kathmandu, can get as close to the “Open Culture Museum”.
