About

The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, located north of India, is a haven for intrepid mountain explorers and a feast for the senses. A honeymoon in Nepal will give you dramatic landscapes and ancient monasteries dotted under snow-capped peaks combined with friendly faces.

This Buddhist nation is an enthralling place to visit. Home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, perfect for exploring the great outdoors. This unique gem has everything you could want from an adventure honeymoon, from stunning natural scenery to thrilling adventure activities. Whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, hot-air balloon rides and skydiving over the Himalayas are all available for adrenaline junkies.

Most couples will start their honeymoon in Nepal in the fascinating capital, Kathmandu. This vibrant city is full of culture, history, and delicious food. Explore lively Durbar Square, the royal Hanuman Dhokaand and Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the monkey temple. South of the Dubar Square lies Kumari Chowk, home to Nepal’s living goddess, the Kumari. The Kumari is a young girl chosen as the incarnation of the Hindu goddess Talejn. Explore Boudhnath Stupa and the surrounding markets, selling everything from spices to souvenirs.

Outside of Kathmandu, the scenery is astounding. The view of the Annapurna Range on the way to the lakeside town of Pokhara is not to be missed. This beautiful region is perfect for relaxing for a few days. It’s also a jump-off point to spend a few days hiking the Annapurna Foothills or a few weeks hiking to Annapurna Base Camp. Stopping at hot springs and tiny villages to visit remote indigenous communities along the way.

While most people think of snow-capped mountains when they think of Nepal, south of the Himalayas opens to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Royal Chitwan National Park. It’s one of the best wildlife areas (along with Royal Bardia National Park) where you can take a jungle safari search for tigers, rhinos, elephants and crocodiles in the verdant forests.

Visit Sagarmatha National Park which offers up-close views of Mount Everest. Sagarmatha is the Nepalese name for Mt. Everest meaning “Goddess of the Sky.” Hiking the Himalayas to Mount Everest Base Camp, close to Tibet, is one of the most challenging travel experiences in the world and is ideal for couples who want to use their honeymoon in Nepal as a chance to tick off their bucket list. The experience will be life-changing. Pass by forests, sherpa villages, visit tea houses and learn about local life, hanging bridges, meadows flowing ridges and ancient glaciers.

Nepal has limited direct flights compared to other parts of Asia, but you can fly via Dubai and Istanbul. There are many flights to India’s major cities, Bangkok in Thailand and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. These destinations are the perfect add-on to create an adventure and beach honeymoon.

A honeymoon in Nepal is perfect for couples who want something unconventional.
