Introduction to Extra-Tourism Activities in Nepal

There are many extra-tourism activities in Nepal. Nepal is a landlocked country with large mountains to the north. This country is a famous destination for tourism activities. Rich in culture, religion, ethnic groups, languages, temples, and monasteries, this country attracts millions of tourists every year. Tourists come here mainly for trekking in the high mountains. As eight of the 10 highest mountains in the world are located in Nepal, it has become a centre of attraction for trekking lovers. Touring is another popular tourist activity in Nepal, after trekking. A tour of Nepal allows you to explore the religion, culture, traditions, and way of life of the people. There are many UNESCO sites in Nepal, of which the sites within the Kathmandu Valley are the most popular.

Although Nepal is famous for trekking and sightseeing, there are many other extra tourist activities besides this. Here, you can include other tourist activities in your trekking or tour schedule. Many other activities can be done here, like climbing, bungee jumping, paragliding, jungle safari, rafting, day hiking, mountain flights, ultra-light aircraft, etc. Some of these are very difficult, and some are easy too. Peak climbing is a difficult activity, but it is a great choice for adventure lovers. Climbing the peak takes you to the top of the Himalayas and offers magnificent Himalayan views. After the successful summit of Mt. Everest by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary, adventure explorers chose Nepal as the destination for climbing, and today, peak climbing has become one of the main adventure activities in Nepal.

Another extra-tourism activity in Nepal is rafting, which is not only adventurous but also fun, so it can be a great option for those who want to have fun with adventure. Rafting on Nepal’s rivers offers unique Himalayan scenery and beautiful landscapes that make your trip even more exciting. Nepal is the most popular destination for whitewater river rafting in Asia, with 1310 rivers, of which 12 are popular for rafting. Although there are many rivers in Nepal, the Trishuli, Bhotekoshi, and Sunkoshi rivers are mainly famous for rafting. Here, you can go rafting for 1 to 10 days, depending on your time and desire.

Hiking is an outdoor activity in which many beautiful places can be reached by walking in the natural environment. If you stay in Nepal for a short time and are looking for an easy trip, single-day hiking can be a great option to visit the countryside and explore Nepal naturally. Hiking is a great way to explore the magnificent views of the nearby Himalayas. Hiking around the Kathmandu Valley, you can see some beautiful mountains without going too far or climbing too high. Similarly, a jungle safari is another tourist activity that is an easy and great way to explore the jungle and wildlife of Nepal. Although an adventure activity, it is suitable for people of all age groups. Jungle safaris do not require physical fitness, as this activity is usually accomplished by elephants or jeeps.
