5 Reasons why you'll fall in love with Nepal


My trip to Nepal is in my top 3 trips I have ever taken. I fell in love with the country and I can't wait to one day go back. I would urge anyone to travel around the country and immerse themselves in the culture, here are 5 reasons why you will all in love.


1. The sunrises
Watching the sunrise over the Himalayas from above the clouds is a truly magical experience. On our trek, we woke up early most days and in return we were rewarded with the most stunning views. On one day we woke up extra early to watch the sunrise from the top of Poon Hill. it remains the best thing I have ever done.

2. The people
Ask anyone that has traveled to Nepal and they will tell you how incredible, beautiful and friendly the Nepalese are. Make sure to speak to the locals and sit down to play cards - Dumbal, a Nepali game, is great fun. The locals always went above and beyond my expectations to make sure we were happy and comfortable, yet also became good friends who I have stayed in contact with.

3. The food
Nepali food as a mixture of Indian and Chinese cuisine. Dal bhat is served almost everywhere and tastes incredible. Expect lots of rice and lentils. There are plenty of veggie friendly options too as well as western meals such as burgers and pizzas. Although I tried to eat as much Nepali food as possible, the vegetable burgers are to die for! Lemon tea is also very common, and although a different taste at first, you quickly learn to love it.

4.The mountains / rice fields
The scenery is arguably the best part of Nepal - every direction you look is worthy of a postcard! The country is home to eight of the worlds ten highest mountains including Mount Everest. The rice fields are just as impressive and add a unique texture to the landscape.

5. Prayer flags
Traditionally, these flags are used to promote strength, wisdom, peace and compassion. They are everywhere and look beautiful. I simply loved photographing them. They can also be bought in many shops - a great souvenir.

This list could go on and on and on and on. I will probably make a part two in the future. Make sure you pack your bags and head to Nepal before it becomes too popular!
