Invariably, I have to answer a question, and that is, “What activities can I do in Nepal?” The answer to this is, “A bazillion things.” As I have repeated this in the past, Nepal is a country that has almost everything to offer to its visitors. It’s a “name it and you have it” situation. Just that you should know what you want from the place while you are travelling Nepal. There obviously are certain must dos while you are visiting the place or your journey will be incomplete. I have dedicated this article to the five must do activities in Nepal, so that this journey of yours becomes the journey of your life.
Nepal boasts of a very rich and ancient culture and this is seen in every act of the people and the architecture of the buildings that are present in the country. When you fly down to the Nepal capital, Kathmandu, you will be received with warmth and as you are transported to your hotel in case you have hired one of the very many Nepal tours that are present, then you will get a view of the natural beauty intermingled with the Nepalese architecture that is age old, yet glorious.
To know about the Nepalese culture, you must pay a visit to the countless museums that this place have. National Museum in Kathmandu, Tribhuvan Museum Hanuman Dhoka, National Museumof Nepal etc are some of the museums worth a special mention. There are also many art galleries that are present in the country and these are a heaven on Earth for art buffs. People looking for culture holidays can consider Nepal as an option.
Once you are done with the sober part of the journey, it is now time for you to bring out your wild instincts and let go of yourself, by partaking in some adventure sports that is the most famous activity in Nepal.

As I mentioned before, Nepal is a small country, but it has everything that you would want to experience while you are on holiday. The wildlife of Nepal is exotic and difficult to find in other parts of the world and this is another reason behind Nepal getting immense tourist attention. There are scores of national parks and wildlife reserves that are present.
The ones that deserve special mention are the Royal Chitwan National Park, Royal Bardia National Park, Sagarmatha National Park etc. The last one is important for those who are interested in trekking to the Everest base camp and apart from this there are soft hiking and biking tours that are also held in the areas surrounding these parks.
The animals that you will get a peek of, are the one horned rhinoceros, tigers, leopards, monkeys, gaurs etc.

There are birds from the endangered species list that you will be able to spot here. The main birds that you will find here are wren babbler, grey-necked bunting, egrets, herons, swamp patridge etc.
These are the five must do activities in Nepal. If you are worried about the cost of doing all this, then don’t stress as there are cheap Nepal holidays that are available and you will get to do all these activities at a sensible cost. Also, if you want to do just one or two of these activities, but do them to the fullest, then you can have tailor made holidays Nepal, as well.

Once you have had you share of adventure sports then you must attend the pilgrimage expeditions that are held on a regular basis.

These pilgrimage journeys are tedious and gratifying too. Hiking to these sites will lead you on the path of self-discovery and you will be able to clear your cluttered mind, as well.
