Top 6 Most Popular Tourist Places to Visit in Nepal are mentioned in below:

1. Everest Base Camp

Everest rises 8,848 meters above sea level. It is the roof of the world. The phrase itself deserves a respect and a few seconds in silence after being pronounced. Silence … That’s what you’ll find in the valleys, lakes, glaciers, villages, temples and spectacular landscapes that you’ll cross in the most impressive trekking you can do on Earth.

If climbing to the top of Everest is only – financially and physically – within reach of a few, getting to your Base Camp is somewhat more affordable.

You can make a route of about 10-12 days of walking (to which we must add another 2 or 3 days of acclimatization to the altitude) from Lukla. Here is the only airport in the area and is the typical starting point of the trekking. However, another cheaper option (for saving the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla) is to take a bus from Kathmandu to Jiri and start from there. Jiri is somewhat further from your goal, so you’ll have to add about 4 or 5 days to your route on foot.

If you leave Lukla, you will start your adventure at 2,860m, to reach a maximum of 5,643 m (Kala Patthar) just a couple of days after reaching Base Camp (5,380m).

During the tour, you will sleep in the simple houses of the Sherpas and you will know their customs and their close link with the mountains, sacred to them. It is an experience that will be recorded in you for a lifetime and, without a doubt, the best to do in Nepal.

2. Lumbini ( The birth place of Lord Gautam Buddha )

When you arrive in this central city of Nepal, a relaxed atmosphere is breathed into the atmosphere. The lotus flowers fill the ponds, men pray between candles and incense. This is the place where Gautama Buddha was born in the 6th century BC, a place that revolves around the founder of Buddhism, attracting thousands of pilgrims who come to this sacred place to reach Enlightenment or approach temples like the famous Japanese stupa of Lumbini or the Maya Devi, the most famous in the city and a show of lights at dusk.

3. Pokhara Lekhnath – Phewa Lake

Only a year ago, the populations of Pokhara and Lekhnath came, together to create the second most populous city in Nepal. However, the name that continues to give everyone is simply Pokhara. Pokhara is one of the most touristic places in Nepal. Through its streets you can hear Spanish, English, Chinese, Korean, German … International food restaurants have proliferated proportionally to the number of mountain guide agencies that offer their services to those travelers who want to make the Annapurna circuit. And it is that Pokhara is the base for this expedition. However, if you do not feel like walking on the mountain and you just come to rest, you can relax by the waters of Lake Phewa. 
The most famous lake to visit in Nepal owes its popularity to water activities, the reflection of the Annapurna on its surface and the fact of providing energy to a large part of the valley’s populations. In the center of the lake is the Tal Barahi temple, dedicated to Vishnu. If you want to see all this from the air, you can make a tandem jump with paragliding.

As for the fauna, here live rare species that you will not be able to see in almost any other part of the world, such as the beautiful snow leopard, the red pandas or the black bears of the Himalayas, which in winter hibernate in their caves due to the lack of food.

6. Pashupatinath

The temple of Pashupatinath and if the Nepalese Buddhists make the pilgrimage to the Swayambhunath temple, the Hindus choose the one in Pashupatinath.

Like its Buddhist brother, this temple was also declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco (1979). Although, Pashupatinath is the main temple, the complex is huge or big and consists of temples as beautiful or cool as those of Vasuki, Unmatta, Surya, and a number of sanctuaries. 
Some of them were damaged during the severe earthquake of 2015, but the site, in general, was hardly damaged. If you want to see the place in full boil, come to the complex on the day of the Maha Shivaratri festival, held in honor of Shiva. That day, nearly a million visitors fill Pashupatinath with color.
