Why you should travel to Nepal in 2020?

| |

2020 started with on a bad note, but nothing can stop it from ending with memorable experiences and travel diaries. Therefore, for the wanderers who do not stop exploring, here’s why you should travel to Nepal in 2020. 

Travel plans of many were canceled abruptly due to the pandemic of coronavirus. The starting of 2020 was unfortunate regardless of our high expectations for the new decade. The tourism industry has taken a hit, but travelers have not lost their enthusiasm. 

It’s July 2020 and people are starting to look for ways to travel. Almost 5 months of isolation has caused people to strive for a refreshing trek, yet to the Himalaya in Nepal. 

On the 22nd of July, the Government of Nepal officially started lifting the lockdown. However, Travels and Tourism are to be opened from July 30 along with hotels and restaurants. A subtle sign of getting back to regular life. 

Break-free from isolation

The outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus caused panic all over the world. The only way to be safe was to avoid contact with anyone, and self-isolation. After months of quarantine, we are finally starting to see some weight lifted off our shoulders. 

Traveling and trekking have been crucial for us to break free from isolation and enjoy some fresh air. Even for the ones who do not enjoy traveling, this has been a remedy and an effective part of our self-care.

Low-cost traveling

The demand for traveling is considerably low. This means you have an opportunity to travel to Nepal at a low cost than usual. Different airlines are providing discounts and offers. The same goes for restaurants and hotels. You could save some serious money if you travel to Nepal in 2020.

Empty Trails 

Due to the travel restrictions in the past, the trekking trails are mostly empty. The trails to some of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal such as Everest Base Camp Trekking, Annapurna Circuit Trekking, and Langtang Region are pretty quiet at the moment. This is good news for those who are trying to avoid traffic and all the hassle that comes with it. So, if you don’t like crowds and queues, now is the time to pack your bags.

Favorable weather for trekking 

Autumn is right around the corner and you will love Nepal during the season. You will get to enjoy the landscape and the mountains without any obstructions. The sky is clear during autumn with some of the mesmerizing views. Nevertheless, the snow-capped Himalaya and the serene trails welcome you to a refreshing trip to Nepal. 

Although there are more benefits to traveling to Nepal in 2020, some of the new regulations might be unusual. But as we know, the places worth visiting often comes with a difficult road. 

Here are some things to be mindful of before visiting Nepal in 2020: 

  1. Social Stigma: People are still in fear and you might have to adapt to the fact that locals will distance themselves from foreigners.  
  2. Fewer Flights: You will have fewer flight options than usual. 
  3. More paperwork: More paperwork related to your health conditions.
  4. Rules and regulations: Be prepared to follow a different set of rules and regulations in order to ensure the safety of you as well as others while traveling.

In our opinion, it is much easier to travel to Nepal in 2020. There are many changes that could benefit you. However, we still recommend that you do your research. Feel free to reach out to us info@coretreks.com to book a trip with us.

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.
