| |

2021 is almost over. January is right around the corner and it’s time to plan your travel resolutions for the upcoming year, 2022.

Nepal should be at the top of your priorities right now. The country is cleaner, safer, and more beautiful than ever. You might have heard about the Himalayas, but Nepal has much more to offer.

From the delicious sweets from Janakpur to spicy chicken recipes from Newari culture, Nepal is a wonderland for foodies. Plus, the rapid increment of luxury resorts in Nepal has allowed tourists to enjoy Nepal at its best. The hospitality of the country is at its prime.

After COVID, Nepal Tourism Board is on its toes looking for ideas to strengthen tourism in Nepal 2022. Experts predicted 2021 to be the year of revival of tourism in Nepal as the country is already opening gates for selected flights and travel groups.

In this article, we will explore 10 reasons why you should visit Nepal in 2022.

The Everest, duh!

Nepal is home to more than 8 of the highest mountains in the world. Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world lies in Nepal. For trekkers, Everest Base Camp Trek could be an incredible opportunity to explore the wilderness of Nepal.

Spring and autumn are two of the best season to trek in Nepal. If not Everest, you could go with shorter and easier trails too. Explore our trekking packages here.

Nepal is inexpensive

From top-rated hotels to day-to-day launch, Nepal is the place to be for budget travelers. USD1 equals NPR. 117 on average, so a few bucks can get you a lot around here. Affordability is one of the major attractions for tourists and it always has been. A full meal via fast-food restaurants will costs you as low as a dollar. So, there’s really not much to complain about.

Unity in diversity

From early on, we (as Nepali) were taught that our country is like a garland of hundreds of different flowers. It literally is. When it comes to religions and diversity, Nepalese love to unite. There isn’t any discrimination between caste, race, or gender.

For a developing country like Nepal, it is important to support each other’s points of view politically and culturally. That is why we celebrate each other’s festival.

Serene lakes and rivers 

Nepal offers you a wide range of pristine lakes and rivers to visit. The country has more than 200 lakes and rivers. Fewa, Gokyo, Tilicho, Rara, and Shey Phoksundo Lake are a few yet popular examples of lakes in Nepal.

There’s no better feeling than sipping on some Masala Tea at the bank of the lakes listening to nothing but nature. One can also experience water sports such as rafting and canoeing while in Nepal.

To volunteer

The aftermath of the 2015 earthquake is yet to be cleared. Although the city recovered pretty quickly, there are places where accommodation in a firm home is considered a luxury. NGOs and INGOs are actively getting involved in volunteering and providing for those in need. If you come from a volunteering background or just want to give back to the community while traveling at the same time, you absolutely can.

Nepalese cuisine

People love food in Nepal, and with a variety of cultural preferences comes a variety of dishes. Daal-Bhaat is the everyday meal for Nepalese. People here enjoy thoroughly cooked masala food. Momo (dumplings) is a perfect example.

When in Nepal, don’t forget to try Newari food as well. They have their own style of cooking and love spicy food. Chatamari, Yomari, Choela, and Aloo Tama are some examples of Newari cuisine.

The birthplace of Buddha – Lumbini

Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha is one of the major attractions for Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world. Out of multiple sacred sites, Mayadevi Temple is the most sacred site in the Lumbini Garden.

The Lumbini Garden covers an area of 1*3 sq miles. Walking around the garden is a therapy in itself. The focal point for pilgrims is a sandstone carving depicting the birth of Buddha.

Higly recommended I did the Langtang Valley trekk with Gosaikunda lakes included. The preparation and communication for that has been great all the time. Nim is an excellent and knowledgeable person. My Trekkingguide was Gorakh and i couldn't have hoped for a better one! I felt like i was in good hands throughout the trekk and he took care of my dietary needs. They also booked my bus ticket to Pokhara and asked the bus driver to pick me up at a place which was closer to my accommodation. Thank you so much Nim!! Next time i will do the Manaslu trekk with you :)

Trek to Rara Lake in Nepal with CoreTreks My wife and I had been planning to visit Nepal since like a year ago. We are really happy and satisfied with our trek to Rara Lake in Nepal. The place is really chilling with beautiful scenery all around. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we got a clear view of the mountains and the lake. We are really humbled to be able to experience such a rare privilege. Our guides informed us that the weather is often bad especially because of the altitude. The alpine vegetation surrounded by mountains was really special to observe. I would like to thank CoreTreks for helping us throughout our journey to Rara Lake.

Great service Beautiful temples and delicious food After touring around the Kathmandu valley, I’m inspired to explore more about Nepal. Unfortunately it will have to be during my next visit. The city is way busier than I expected it to be. As we drove outside the valley, we discovered some peaceful environment and beautiful temples. The Nepali cuisine in Kathmandu was something I would love to try again. They are spicy but delicious. I have to say that the people in Nepal are really friendly and welcoming. Everyone greeted us with love and treated us nicely. There was no fear for a lone traveler like me to get through the tour. Thanks to CoreTreks and the team for making this tour possible for me. I booked last minute but they helped me through everything. I really appreciate it. If you are looking to visit Nepal, I highly recommend that you book from CoreTreks they are the best.

Langtang Trekking 이제 돌아와서 한숨돌리고 적네요. 네팔이란 나라가 처음이고, 한국에서도 등산한번 하지 않았었는데, 갑자기 네팔이 가고 싶었습니다. 네팔에 가면 뭔가 꽉막힌 마음이 뚤릴것 같았고, 복잡한 머리가 정리가 될것 같았습니다. 다행이 CORE TREK 의 Nim을 만나 트레킹을 잘 마무리할 수 있었습니다. 랑탕 출발하기전 호텔 부킹이나 팀스 / 퍼밋 , 환전 및 준비물 구매 등 그리고 이런 일들을 하기위한 이동까지 꼼꼼하게 함께 챙겨 주어서 그나마 잘 준비하여 트레킹을 시작하였습니다. 그리고 트레킹 중간에 대부분이 3G를 사용하지 못해 가족들에게 연락이 되지 않았는데, 다행이 Nim과는 현지 폰으로 연락이 되어, 저 대신 가족들에게 연락도 가능하고, 중간 중간에 문제 있는지등 그리고 복귀 마지막날 뭔가를 잘못먹었는데 아파서 호텔에서만 누워 있었는데, 그래도 타국에 누군가 연락할 수 있다는게 많은 도움이 되더군요. 저는 포터 및 가이드 없이 혼자서 갔다왔고, 트레킹이야 혼자만의 싸움이였지만, 카트만두 출발전 / 복귀후에는 Nim이 많은 도움이 되었네요. 다음에 또 네팔에 오게되면 필히 Nim과 함께 하겠습니다.
