Conquer the heights together on a honeymoon in Nepal, home to the highest mountains in the world. This charmed land amazes any honeymooner’s heart with its natural splendor. The sceneries are astonishing - wildlife and floral forests, terraced farms located on the hillsides, magnificent rivers and waterfalls and the ubiquitous atmosphere of the majestic Himalayas.
The cities in Nepal are rather diverse and you would have to choose from the historical and the cultural, the rustic and the scenic. The capital, Kathmandu, is a vivid city where you can spend many time relishing the rush of adrenalin at one of the renowned casinos, walking through the bazaars and shopping malls, and dining at the marvelous eating places.
You may visit some of the most amazing cities in the world like the ancient city of Patan, with its rich cultural heritage; Bhaktapur, the city of devotees; Pokhra, with its marvellous lake, a starting point for trekkers, rafters and mountaineers; Chitwan, the wildlife rapture where you can live among the nature or the luxury facilities; Tansen and Gorkha with their panoramic Himalayan sceneries; and Lumbini with its Buddhist tradition. Nepal offers a little of everything for your special honeymoon experience.
All the visitors should have passports when entering, except Indians, who can use a voter’s identity card or drivers’ license for identification. You will be issued 60-day single-entry visa but getting an extension is generally easy.
Nepal has only one international airport that is Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International. You may easily enter Nepal by road through the Indian border at one of the numerous entry points at Kakkarbhitta (West Bengal), Biratnagar (Bihar), Birgunj (Bihar), Sunauli, Nepalgunj, Dhanagadi and Mahendranagar (all across the border from Uttar Pradesh).
But Nepal is well connected by domestic air services. You may charter helicopters at Kathmandu. Once in Kathmandu you may easily get around by bus, taxi and rented cars. Outside the capital there are only chauffeured services available.
The best time to go Nepal is in autumn (late September-November) and spring (February-April). Mild breezes sweep the plains and while autumn brings the vivid festival season, in spring (February-April) you may relish the bloom of flowers to the countryside. If you are eager to trek, set off between October and May, when the weather is comparatively steady. Try to avoid the rainy season from June to August.
Luxury lodging is rare in Nepal and found only in Kathmandu, Pokhra and Chitwan. Only in Kathmandu you may get five star suites. Most accommodation in Nepal is middle-class and particularly domestic. Rates usually range from US$15-30 for economy rooms, to $100-200 for deluxe.
