Holidays are a wonderful time to go out and enjoy the world, not just spend time with family, snuggle under covers, and exchange gifts. Do not rush to pack your bags and board an aircraft back home! There is a good probability that you will enjoy the nicest Christmas season ever while visiting Nepal during this Christmas because you won’t miss anything wonderful. Simply visit the neighboring shopping centers to get Nepalese-made presents for your friends and families back home. Or, you may simply stroll through the busy downtown streets, where you will undoubtedly see many structures dazzling with amazing lights and holiday decorations to welcome visitors. As you celebrate Christmas in a nation primarily populated by Hindu and Buddhist people, who often don’t celebrate the holiday like their counterparts in western and European nations, it will always be a memorable experience in your mind.
Everest Mount Flight:
People can make their fantasies come true and visit Mount Everest during the forthcoming Christmas season. It is the highest mountain in the world. You can view some of the tallest mountains in the world from your window seats on an hour-long Everest Mountain Flight. You will need to glance up to its massive face even when you are in the air to glimpse the top. Trekking to the foothills of the highest peak in the world (Everest Base Camp), if that is what you like to do, is always an option. Winter may deter some hikers, but on the plus side, the weather is still lovely and clear, the trails are less congested, and the mountains are just as stunning as ever.
Roaming around Thamel:
The holy city is Thamel. Thamel has everything. And Thamel never lets you down. This is the only location where eastern and western cultures may coexist in full authenticity, and it is situated in the city’s center, Kathmandu. It is a vibrant and lovely combination of craft stores, upscale cafes, hiking equipment, and rainbow prayer flags. It is one of the locations that tourists and celebrities visit the most since it is a one-stop shop for everything available in Nepal. The most well-liked restaurants, bars, outfitters, and outdoor-related businesses are all located here. Thamel has evolved into a new center of glitter and glitz that awakens at night to display a new adrenaline and excitement in order to satiate the wanderlust of tourists.
Go for a Food Adventure
One of the best aspects of traveling is eating, where you may experience food that is different from what you are used to. And because eating doesn’t stop during the winter, it’s much more special. You get to taste a variety of foods because there are so many events happening. However, you can still celebrate if you are in Nepal and are not with relatives. You can eat some of the most traditional and genuine food you’ve ever had in Nepal. Some of the traditional foods that have won over many foreign hearts include the Nepali thali and the Newari Khaja set. The top foods include fast food like momo and street food like chat, chatpate, and laphing. However, there are many restaurants and hotels where you may fulfill your wish to experience the celebratory cuisine.
Pokhara, a lakeside city, was once thought of as the perfect rest stop for trekkers heading to or from the formidable Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal. This serene and picturesque village develops over time into a well-liked vacation spot that draws visitors from both domestic and foreign countries. Pokhara justifies the moniker “northwestern jewel” given to it. The town resembles a water picture, with the peacefulness of the three Phewa, Rupa, and Begnas natural lakes set against the serene backdrop of the snow-capped Annapurna peaks. You might like to go boating or spend some time at a quiet café by the Phewa lake. You can either paraglide from the Sarangkot cliffs, jump out in tandem, or bungee jump 70 meters into the air, depending on how brave you feel. Cycling and travelling are some popular activities there. Christmas and New Year’s special cuisines are served during street festivals and gala dinners at Pokhara’s Lakeside Market during the holiday season.
Poon Hill Trek:
This is a brief, lower-altitude trek in Annapurna. Get the breathtaking Himalayan scenery, a fantastic climb, and warm ethnic hospitality for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This walk is amazing for you regardless of your age or whether you’re taking children. With your friends and family this Christmas, take a trip trekking to some of Nepal’s best yet shortest trekking destinations.
Jungle Safari in Chitwan:
If you’re sick of the icy snow back home, travel to Sauhara in Chitwan and take advantage of the year-round warmth.

Go for Short Hike Around Kathmandu:
Within the valley itself, there are numerous locations where you can go on a day hike. A day trek will be the best option because it will be a peaceful nature stroll where you can take in the stunning scenery and mountain vistas. Hiking in the winter will keep your body warm, and it will be pleasant to stroll while soaking up the sun’s warmth. Some of the well-liked one-day climbs inside the valley include Nagarkot, Kakani, Namo Buddha, Phulchowki, and Sundarijal. In Nepal, long day treks in the winter are less common because the higher altitudes have harsher winters with a greater chance of snowstorms.
