Romantic Holidays in Nepal
If you are on your honeymoon trip to Nepal or taking a vacation with the love of your life, an ambitious and strenuous trek might not be preferred. Nepal is a beautiful Himalayan country full of lush green valleys and plains, snow-clad mountains, and cultural diversity that is unmatched in beauty by most other destinations. Nepal has everything from lake cities to the most beautiful hamlet on the foothills of the tallest mountains you have ever seen to take a relaxing journey in the ever-stretching forests in the Terai plains. You only need to choose wisely and decide what you want. Here we list some of the romantic destinations in the country, with outstanding views, luxury, and elegance wrapped in a package you would not regret taking. You can add any of these destinations before or after the Nepal trekking or peak climbing adventure.
The City of Lakes – Pokhara:
Pokhara, a beautiful, laid-back city that lies en route to a plethora of trekking routes around Annapurna, is unarguably among the most romantic destination in the country. This valley is a dreamland set perfectly with beautiful lakes reflecting the Himalayan ranges, friendly and hospitable people, and, most importantly, the starting point of many beautiful regional destinations. You could try the sunrise and panoramic mountain views from Sarangkot and zip fly or paraglide for that luxurious experience of true adventure in the air. Or hire a boat and spend your day on the tranquil Fewa Lake. Meet trekkers coming to relax and rejuvenate, and plan your own if you have plenty of time. This Pokhara is the trek starting point of trekking in the Annapurna region.
An Ancient Hilltop Settlement – Bandipur:
This small yet culturally rich destination could slow down all your activity and make you want to watch and relax. Set on the tranquil hill between the Kathmandu-Pokhara Highway, Bandipur preserves the old Newari architecture that can be seen in its few guest houses and hotels around the main street. Morning views are blessed with rivers and hills below and mountain ranges touching the sky towards the north. Evening rituals around the bazaar are entertaining. Going downhill to the Siddha Cave and hiking to Ramkot village are equally fascinating.
A Scenic Stay – Nagarkot
Just 32 km east of Kathmandu, the capital city, it is one of the country's most beautiful and romantic destinations. Sunrise views are heavenly from most hotels, with the Himalayan ranges towards the north in a panorama, including Mt Everest. Sunset views of the city and the fields below are equally enjoyable. Nagarkot is considered the most blissful to stay near Kathmandu and is easily accessible. You can join the Nagarkot day hike trip if you have just a day in Kathmandu.
The Jungle Safari – Chitwan National Park
Perhaps nothing beats the fun of taking an elephant ride, bathing it, and watching all sorts of animals from its back elevation. You can add a jeep ride to the jungle, a canoe ride, a relaxing sunset at the banks of the Narayani river, an evening cultural show of the Tharu ethnic people, and more. There is no limit to fun here on your Chitwan Jungle safari trip if you want to spend some romantic time close to nature.
