  •  The hidden treasures of Nepal –

Nepal is home to eight of the world’s highest peaks, each towering above 8000m. These majestic peaks include Mount Everest (8,848 m), Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463 m), Cho Oyu (8,201m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Manaslu (8,163 m), and Annapurna (8,091 m). The inner Himalayan valleys, like Mustang and Dolpo, resemble cold deserts akin to the Tibetan plateau. Nepal is often referred to as the “water towers of South Asia” due to its 6,000 rivers, which rely on snowmelt or rainfall. Major perennial rivers originating in the Himalayas include Mahakali, Karnali, Narayani, and Koshi, while medium-sized rivers like Babai, West Rapti, Bagmati, Kamla, Kankai, and Mechi emerge from the Midlands and Mahabharat range.

When it comes to wetlands, Nepal boasts 163 documented sites, with nine being globally recognized Ramsar Sites. These include Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, Beeshazarital (Chitwan), Jagdishpur Reservoir (Kapilvastu), and Ghodaghodi Tal (Kailali) in the Tarai region. In the mountainous region, you can find Gokyo (Solukhumbu), Phoksundo (Dolpa), Rara (Mugu), and Mai Pokhari (Ilam). Moreover, Nepal is home to over 30 natural caves, some of which hold cultural and religious significance. For instance, Maratika Cave, also known as Haleshi, is a sacred site for both Buddhists and Hindus. Another remarkable site is Siddha Cave, located below BNDIPUR near Bimal Nagar along the Kathmandu-Pokhara highway. Additionally, the Pokhara region is famous for its caves, including Bat’s Shed (Mahendra Gufa), Batulechar, Gupteswar, and Patale Chhango. Lastly, if you venture to the Mustang region, you’ll discover numerous caves adorned with ancient murals and chortens dating back to the 13th century, such as Luri and Tashi Kabum.

  • What’s the food like in Nepal?

The national dish of Nepal is Daal Bhaat Takaari (lentils, rice, and vegetable curry), which can be found in a range of flavors and is often served as a main course for lunch and dinner. For many people in Nepal, this is the only dish they eat. Its quality often varies, being excellent in one restaurant and bland in another. This dish also forms the basis of a thali, a round platter of various dishes that also include roti, papad, curd, chutney, and pickles. Thalis are a varied and cost-effective meal option in Nepal.

Nepali food is influenced by Tibetan cuisine, especially in the mountains where a traditional diet consists of soups, potatoes, pasta, and toasted flour. Additionally, Indian food such as Roti (bread), tandoori meats, masala, and kofta can be found in Nepal. Kathmandu is renowned as the budget eating capital of Asia, with tourist restaurants selling a wide variety of Western-style fast food including chips, steaks, and pizza. Noodles, known as chow-chow in Nepali, are available everywhere and are ideal for a quick snack.
