Things You Can Do With A Nepal Visa: Hike Everest in Solitude

April 16th, 2011
Nepal is a backpacker's paradise, but while it's known for its absolutely stunning scenery, it's not known for providing solitude. Most backpackers look at the heavily-trafficked main trails as an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. But some of us are a little more misanthropic. We prefer to walk alone. Now, my fellow misanthropes can have their cake and eat it, too, so to speak: A relatively new loop trail, the Three Passes Trek, takes you around the Himalayas and through Everest Base Camp, while avoiding the crowds for most of the route. New York Times travel writer Alex Hutchinson recently hiked the route with his wife, and from his description it sounds just as spectacular as any trail in Nepal. Check it out: "Behind us, looming above a turquoise glacial lake, was


Get a Nepal Visa to Go Parahawking

March 26th, 2011
Yet another reason Nepal is freaking awesome: it's one of only two places in the world where you can go parahawking. (h/t Gadling) What, you may ask, is parahawking? It's your chance to literally soar with the eagles (or in this case, the trained Egyptian vultures). Parahawking involves paragliding (in tandem with a trained pilot if you're inexperienced, though you can go solo if you know what you're doing) with a trained bird of prey to guide you to the best thermals. Thermals are updrafts of warm air that help both raptors and paragliding humans soar effortlessly. Even better,  at the moment the only organization that offers parahawking is also involved in conservation and rescue efforts for local birds of prey. So, the €125 you pay is money well spent as it helps support those


Get a Nepal Visa to Hang Out in Pokhara

March 12th, 2011
You've probably never heard of Pokhara, but this picturesque little city is actually the third largest in Nepal. A tourist magnet, Pokhara is a base camp for tourists heading into the Himalayas and a place for backpackers trekking the Annapurna circuit to relax and enjoy some creature comforts before hitting the trail again. Pokhara caters to the adventurous with knock-off gear shops galore, a paragliding school, and plenty of guides willing to take you along on whitewater rafting trips or jungle safaris. However, the city is not just for adrenaline junkies. The picture-perfect scenery and relaxed atmosphere makes it a great place to "just be." Pokhara is located along the deep blue waters of Phewa Tal, Nepal's second-largest lake, so if you really want to get away from it all for


Nepal Visa Requirements to See the Temple of Boudhanath Stupa

December 25th, 2010
Boudhanath Stupa is one of the most beautiful and impressive Buddhist temples in Nepal. Towering over the country's capital Kathmandu, it is one of the city's chief tourist attractions. It's easy to see why -- the glistening white dome is topped with a gold canopy and surrounded by innumerable brightly colored, fluttering prayer flags for an amazing visual impact. According to legend, the stupa is the final resting place of an important sage called Kāṣyapa. There are several interesting legends describing how it was built. In one, recounted on the NileGuidance blog, an old woman petitioned the ruler of the area for land to build a temple to house the remains of the sage. The king granted her "as much land as a buffalo skin could cover," so she cut the buffalo skin into thin strips and


Get a Nepal Visa to Hike the Annapurna Circuit Now-Before It’s Too Late!

October 2nd, 2010
If you've ever dreamed of hiking Nepal's Annapurna circuit, long hailed as one of the most amazing trails in the world, you'd better get your Nepal visa and book a trek. By 2012, a road will be open along the Marsyangdi Valley side of the trail. There's already a road on the other side, shrinking what was once an epic 17-day trek to 11 days. When the new road is complete, hikers can look forward to a much less epic 4-day trek away from the road. Of course, you can still walk on the road, but competing with vehicles and the dust and fumes they create makes the trekking experience much less enjoyable. New York Times reporter Ethan Todras-Whitehill walked the entire 17 day route in March, including the part that coincides with the existing road. Lest you think that fears about the imp
