Some of these heritages are ancient palaces and courtyards, some are religious sites, and some are historical sites. It is not every day you visit a small and accessible country with so many world heritage lists. Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Changu Narayan, Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, Swayambhunath, and Lumbini are the eight cultural heritage sites, while Sagarmatha and Chitwan National Park are the two natural heritage sites in Nepal.

Try Traditional Nepalese Cuisine

Nepalese cuisine has the finest and most distinctive flavor quality. Not only is Nepalese cuisine wealthy in flavor, but it also represents a broad range of cultures and traditions. The tasty and healthy signature foods of Nepal will surprise you with their exquisite variety of cuisines. Some of you should go hunting and try are Dal Bhat Tarkari, Momo, Chattamari, Dheedo, Newari Khaja Set, Yomari, Sel, and more. 

Village Tours

More than 70% of Nepal is a village where you can see the real picture of Nepal. Passing along these villages, put your hands together and say 'Namaste' to these people, who will return the gesture with the most innocent and welcoming smile.

Nepal's villages are charming with various religious, cultural, racial, and ethnic groups. You will find it fascinating how these people have adapted to their environment in their ways as the inaccessibility in these places is very frustrating. You will see ox plowing the field, blacksmiths making the tools, and foods still cooked in firewood.

After visiting villages, you will get a bigger picture of Nepal with a different understanding. They are the living and breathing museum one must not miss witnessing. Tall buildings, comfortable lifestyles, busy and crowded streets, smog, and pollution in city areas tell a different story, but you will see the real side in villages.
