If someone suggested traveling to Nepal and visiting the great country but you only had about a week’s time to enjoy it you might say that the person was crazy. However it is possible to enjoy your time in Nepal even if you have a week or less to do it. This article will show you that yes it is possible and how it can be done.
Time Of The Year
One of the first questions you need to ask yourself is what time of the year you are going to be visiting Nepal. There are two main times of the year that are the best for tourism. The peak season is from September to late November. This is just after the monsoon season is over and the air is very dry and clear. The second time of the year that is best to travel to Nepal is from February to April. The temperatures are warmer and makes for a great time when you are trekking through Nepal.
Decide What Type Of Vacation You Want In Nepal
When you are traveling to Nepal for a vacation but you only have a short period of time like seven days you need to really plan exactly what you want to do while you are there. The primary activities that are offered throughout Nepal consist of touring the culture and history of Nepal, trekking, jungle adventure sports and of course relaxation. You can mix and match the different types of activities but with a short time span you probably will not get everything to fit into your schedule.
Trekking In Nepal
When you want to trek in Nepal one of the most common questions is whether it is possible to trek to the Everest base camp within a seven-day itinerary. The answer is probably not but you can still see Everest if that is what you want. There are long treks that you can take and there are also short treks that you can take. The longer ones will probably take up most of your seven day itinerary while the short ones will take a smaller time period and will leave you time for other things as well.
Culture And History Of Nepal
If you are a culture and history lover you have traveled to the right place. Nepal is filled with both history and culture and you will find that there is a lot to do and see in Nepal and you can get your fill of it within the seven day period. The one place you will want to visit for culture is the Kathmandu Valley. This is the primary attraction for culture lovers.
The Jungles Of Nepal
If you are a jungle lover you will not be disappointed when traveling to Nepal. There are several jungles that you can choose from as well as several national parks. It is completely up to you as to what you want to see and when. You can easily see both the jungles and the parks within seven days.
If you are an adventure sports type of person you will find that there are many available to you in Nepal. You can bungee jump, paraglide, white water raft and climb. You will not be disappointed in the activities you can accomplish when in Nepal as long as you pick the right time of the year to go. Some of the adventure sports can get touch and go if you are traveling during the monsoon season.
When traveling to Nepal you will find that you will not be bored and you will have a difficult time fitting in everything that you want to do within a seven day time period. It is best to plan every moment of your trip before you arrive in Nepal.
