What's included

Destination

A lesser-visited destination in Nepal, Rara Lake is truly nature’s wonder. Rara Lake Tour is a journey that displays the raw beauty of nature and authentic cultural origins. Also, the trek explores the pristine trails in western Nepal. Moreover, the views of the Himalayas and incredible bio-diversity in the Rara National Park are even more rewarding. The trails see fewer tourists so it is perfect for those with the desire to travel in solitude.

 Firstly, you begin the tour at Kathmandu where you prepare for the tour. Meanwhile, you can also visit some of the famous locations within the valley as well. Then, a short flight will take you to the city of Nepalgunj which also houses a few famous destinations. Next, another flight lands at the Talcha Airport that signals the beginning of the trek. As you explore the Rara National Park, you can enjoy the bio-diversity of the region as well. Likewise, the beauty of the surrounding landscapes is equally sublime as well.

The Rara exploration also includes a visit to Rara Lake. The lake is the biggest in Nepal and is known for its stunning beauty. Moreover, the vantage points around the lake display the beauty of the nearby regions including Rara Lake. After exploring the lake, you trek back to Talcha Airport. Finally, two flights from Talcha to Nepalgunj and then to Kathmandu end the trip.

Trekkers do have to be wary of the flight delay that can happen on the flight from Nepalgunj to Talcha Airport. This is because of the unpredictable weather in the high-altitude regions around the airport. The trek is a fairly easy and short one. So, trekkers can have an average physical shape for the tour. Also, the autumn and spring seasons are the best time to do the Rara Lake Tour.

Foreigner tourists visiting heritage sites, attraction places, and monuments of the country and have to pay a certain entrance fee to get inside the area. The people of South Asian countries (SAARC) have to pay fewer entrance fees in comparison to tourists from other countries. Many tourists want to see the typical Nepalese art and cultural places, happily paying the entrance fee because it is worth paying to visit.

Popular destinations to visit 

There are many places you can visit in Nepal. Nepal is not only gifted with natural beauty but it is also culturally rich which means there are many heritages and sites you can visit. Kathmandu Valley is the first and foremost destination that you should not miss out on. The seven UNESCO world heritage sites in the valley, namely, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, and Changunarayan.

Other places you must visit while in Nepal are Pokhara, Chitwan, and Lumbini. Pokhara is a scenic lake city, located 6 hours’ drive away from Kathmandu city. There you will be able to enjoy the serene and peaceful nature with the Annapurna ranges in the backdrop. Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, is a historic destination whereas the Chitwan National Park is a natural haven for exotic flora and fauna. Both of these are also enlisted as world heritage sites by UNESCO. Palpa, Bandipur, Bardia National Park, and Ilam are some of the popular destinations.

As for trekking and mountaineering activities, Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Manaslu, Upper Mustang, and Dolpo regions are some of the most popular ones in Nepal.

Internet and Communication in the country

You do not have to worry about not getting communication service or Internet service in Nepal. In recent years, the internet and communication services have drastically progressed and developed. While in the major cities and tourist destinations, you can use free Wi-Fi including many of the cafes and restaurants. Similarly, almost every hotel and some public areas provide Wi-Fi services. However, Wi-Fi is not always available in remote areas in the Himalayas and rural Hilly regions.

In such situations, a cellular connection is the best option for both Internet access and communication. NTC and Ncell at two of the biggest telecommunication corporations and offer sim cards with various packages at a reasonable price. These service providers have a wide reach over many parts of Nepal. You will easily be able to purchase any sim card with your passport or identity card.

Local currency and foreign exchange  

While in Nepal, you should use Nepali rupees (NRs) which is also the official currency of Nepal. You can easily exchange your currency into the Nepalese Rupee at the Tribhuvan International Airport or the exchange counters and banks around the major cities. Also, the major cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, and Lumbini have a great availability of banks and ATMs. However, their availability becomes quite scarce when you head to the Himalayas and remote areas.

So, it is best if the travelers perform all their money-related activities while they are in the major cities.

Weather and climate 

The climate in Nepal varies according to altitude and the current season. The lowland of the Terai region in the southern part of the country is very hot and humid during the summer. The temperature there can get as high as 45 degrees Celsius. The middle part is also known as the hilly region has a pleasant and bearable climate all year long. However, in winter the nights and early mornings can get quite chilly. The Himalayan region is the northernmost part of the country and is above 3300m. This region usually has alpine climatic conditions and during the winter season, it experiences adverse weather conditions.

Nepal generally has four seasons, namely, spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The spring here means every part of the country has flowers blooming and summer means a lot of humidity and rainfall. While the autumn is neither too hot nor too cold and the skies are always clear. The winter season brings snow in the Himalayan region and some parts of the hilly region as well. Finally, during the monsoon season, the entire country experiences heavy rainfall except in the rain shadow areas of Upper Dolpo and Mustang.

People, culture, and festivals

Nepalese are known to be one of the kindest people all over the world. With a smile on everyone’s face, you will be warmly welcomed and greeted. The word “Namaste” is used while they join their hands together which means a respectful greeting. Nepal is a culturally rich country with many different castes, languages, and traditions. The diverse culture and tradition result in many different festivals celebrated all around the nation. The major festivals celebrated are Dashain, Tihar, Holi, Sonam Losar, Gyalpo Losar, and many more. Especially in Newari settlements, people celebrate many colorful and radiant festivals. You will be able to experience wonderful and lifelong memory if you visit Nepal during the time of festivals.

Checklist for Tour in Nepal

Nepal is not only famous for adventure trekking and expedition but also a popular destination for Cultural, Historical, and natural tours. Budget to luxury tours can be done in this beautiful Himalayan nation. Nepal’s towering great Himalayas range and ages of old temples monuments, it’s no surprise from any point of view that so many people have first choice, this small South Asian country on their travel bucket list. Dozens of best trekking trails in the world, Buddhist and Hindu famous religious sites, Natural, Cultural diversity, and delicious local food, travelers either young or old fall in love with Nepal every year. That’s what’s we can’t say that Nepal is not the best destination for the tourism hub. Either a short tour or long tour we always welcome the guest from all over the world.

Before you pop on the first plane to Kathmandu, Nepal, it’s important to think about what you’ll put on your backpack list for your amazing holiday. Any type of tour either private car tour, Luxury tour, Honeymoon tour, adventurous tour needs certain types of equipment to help you out, here’s a list of packing essentials for Nepal, as well as what you should buy or rent in Nepal.

What to Bring to Nepal for my Package Tour:

Passport:

This may seem obvious important documents, but don’t lose your passport! This is your ticket in and out of Nepal with min 6 months valid passport required. Bring along some photocopies of your main passport page too, just in case, and bring few Passport sizes photos for a trekking permit or for a local SIM card.

Guidebook for Nepal:

Lonely Planet guidebook to Nepal provides an excellent overview of different places to explore in Nepal, as well as essays on social and cultural norms, a few useful and common Nepali phrases, and tons of hotels, restaurants, and Places recommendations. A guidebook is a great way to learn more about the particular country you’re visiting, and it can help orient you when you’re feeling lost.

Camera and charger:

Photos make your memory recall after many years of your holiday. It keeps your past fresh and unforgettable. During the tour in Nepal, there are so many things that you should keep on your camera. Chances are that you’ll get mountains, Landscape, wild Animals, River and so many attractive views during your visit and you’ll want to have a camera at the ready to make sure you capture the scenery. The Canon EOS Rebel Digital T5 is a good option for beginning photographers who still want quality photos. Alternatively, you can take some pretty great photos with high mega pictures iPhone these days use whatever you’re comfortable with. All hotels during the tour can charge your camera cell.

Cell phone and charger:

Bring your cell phone with you, especially if you know that it’s unlocked (Verizon phones, for example, are generally unlocked). SIM cards in Nepal cost less than $3.00, and a data package is also relatively inexpensive. If you think being able to make calls and have data will be useful, I definitely recommend that you purchase a Local SIM to contact your friends & family. Wi-Fi is also available in most of the places in Nepal.

Travel insurance:

Travel insurance is important for anyone going overseas. Package Tour in Nepal also required travel insurance and it can be purchased prior to arriving in Nepal. World Nomads and other insurance companies offer excellent, affordable, and flexible travel insurance.

Water bottle or Camelbak:

Water is essential for life, and clean water is imperative during holidays. When visiting less developed countries like Nepal it is a concern that all travelers should consider. Camelbak’s water sack has come in handy countless times during my travels in Nepal. It’s important to carry potable water with you. Bottle water is the main option during the tour and available to all the destinations.

Water purification tablets or water filter:

Nepal does not have potable drinking water (although it’s much worse in urban areas than up in the mountains), so it’s important that you bring along a water filter or purification pills for the trekking but bottled water is also available during the tour, but I would recommend avoiding creating all that plastic waste!

Sandals:

Although most of the time we travel by private car even we need comfortable sandals. Sports sandals definitely come in handy in Nepal, particularly if you’re traveling during hot weather or the monsoon. You’ll be doing a lot of walking during the tour time, so you want something comfortable; Kathmandu is also quite dusty, so something that can be cleaned easily is important.

Non-hiking clothing:

You’re going to explore the sights and sounds of Pokhara, Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Lumbini, Chitwan, or whatever other places you’re visiting. Nepalis avoid dressing shabbily, and few wear athletic clothing on the street. You probably won’t need anything fancy, but I would highly recommend bringing one reasonably modest and nice outfit that you can wear out and the season-wise September to February winter clothes and March to August summer clothes.

Rain jacket/ Raincoat:

Bring a windbreaker/rain jacket to keep you warm and dry, particularly if you’re traveling between June to August when it rains more consistently. Monsoon season is more active these 2/3 months so a nice umbrella also works for the tour.

Credit and debit card:

While Nepal is a primarily cash-based society, ATM s are regularly available in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, and other large towns. Bring a credit or debit card so you can withdraw cash when you’re in urban areas. I would recommend withdrawing some little expenses like water, entrance fee, souvenir, and meals amount in Kathmandu. Sometimes all the ATM doesn’t accept the international card. Max Rs 35000 per transaction and charge Rs 500 per transaction.

Money belt:

While petty thievery is not rampant in Nepal, it does happen but Protects yourself and your belongings by wearing a money belt, which you can use to conceal cash for your daily expenses and important documents like your passport. This particular belt also protects you from thieves who might try to scan your card electronically!

Shampoo and Soap:

Most of the hotels and resort provide the soap and shampoo during your tour but maybe less quality or you might have an allergy issue so highly recommend to bring your own and your favorite.

Power adapter:

Nepal uses plugs from India, Europe, and the United States, so it’s a good idea to bring a converter along with you to make sure you’re able to charge all of your devices without any trouble.

Personal medications:

It should go without saying that you should bring any prescription medication you use with you to Nepal. While certain pharmaceuticals are available at the small pharmacies commonly found in Kathmandu and other parts of the country.

Toiletries:

Razor, razor blades, shaving cream, aftershave toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, sunscreen, toilet paper, small towel, and period pads (for women).

Medication:

First Aid Medical Kit box also available on the tourist plate car/ jeep during the tour. Altitude Medicines (Diamox), Tylenol, aspirin, ibuprofen, Anti-diarrheic, Powerful antibiotics, and Nasal Spray or Drops can buy in Thamel or in Pokhara lakeside areas.

Sunscreen:

It’s likely that you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors during your tour in Nepal, and it’s important to make sure that your skin doesn’t get burned. I like Neutrogena’s sunscreen because it’s creamy without being greasy, and at 85 SPF provides pretty strong protection. It is possible to buy sunscreen in Nepal tourist areas like Thamel, Pokhara, and Chitwan, but you may not be able to find higher-quality brands.

Power bank:

Until recently, power outages (referred to in Nepal as ‘load shedding’) were very common, particularly in Kathmandu and other parts of the country so it’s a good idea to keep your devices charged and to carry around a power bank just in case.
