Nepal Travel Guide: Most Beautiful Places to Visit In Nepal

Here is a list of the most beautiful places to visit in Nepal:


Kathmandu–the capital of Nepal is particularly famous for its religious temples, monasteries, and stupas. It houses five World Heritage Sites– Durbar Square, Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple, and Swayambhunath Stupa. Kathmandu lies 4,344 feet above sea level and is one of the most populated cities in Nepal. People have been living in this part of Nepal since the 2nd Century, which is a long time. 

Kathmandu Valley is one of the fastest-growing cosmopolitans in Asia. Kathmandu is called the gateway to the Himalayas. Both Hindus and Buddhists are the majority in Kathmandu and their cultural and religious festivals are a significant part of Kathmandu. 

You should stay at least two nights in Kathmandu to see all the popular tourist sites. The hotels in Kathmandu are quite affordable. There are a variety of accommodations for different types of tourists. The food is great and tasty. There are two halal hotels in the city- Alhamdulillah and Bismillah.

Durbar Square

Durbar Square is opposite the royal palace of Nepal. It is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu. Durbar Square contains many temples, idols, and open yards where Buddhists and Hindus host their rituals, holy ceremonies, etc. In the old times, the royals used to have royal events like royal marriages or coronations here.

Boudhanath Stupa

According to many historians, Boudhanath Stupa was built in the 14th century after the death of Buddha. It is a guiding light of Buddhism as the giant mandala echoes beauty and peace. Those big eyes in the four primary directions represent the all-seeing Buddha.

The building’s structure includes a giant dome on the top. Upon it, there’s the Buddhist pyramid-shaped tower. The crown and the tower sit on a massive steps-shaped mandala. The stupa was originally on a significant trade passage which meant possible converts visited the stupa. The stupa is a primary pilgrimage spot for Buddhists.

Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath Temple is a Hindu temple for God Pashupati in Kathmandu. Pashupati is the national God of Nepal. The temple is one of the most beautiful pieces of Hindu architecture. UNESCO World Heritage Site has listed this temple as a world heritage. The temple area always remains full of pandits, sadhus, dying or dead people, monkeys, deer, and tourists. 

Elderly Hindus choose this place to die peacefully on the bank of the River Bagmati, which later meets with the Ganga– the sacred river of Hinduism. They are later cremated here, and their ashes are scattered over Bagmati. They believe that if you die at the temple site you’ll be reincarnated as a human no matter what sins you committed. If you’re intrigued by death or Hinduism then this is the place you should visit.
