Attractions from Nepal

Janakpur (Janakpur)
Experience the most fascinating city in Terai, also one of the holiest temple areas of the Hindus, who go on pilgrimage to this place on a large scale. Smell the incense and listen to the Hindus chanting "Sita Ram, Sita Ram".
Chitwan National Park (Kathmandu)
The largest of the national parks in the Terai area, where you can explore the dense jungle from an elephant back, a jungle where numerous birds are flapping in the air, while deer and rhinoceroses look for food. If you're lucky you will see a tiger at close range, and if you want to get active yourself, there's jungle trekking and canoeing.
Kathmandu Durbar Square (Kathmandu)
The area in the middle of the city with the old Royal Palace and the temples is a fascinating place. The strange architecture, the monkeys crawling on the roofs, the incense, the holy sadus and the palace of the live goddess Kumari makes it a place where you can spend many hours. Go there early in the morning and late in the evening in order to see the buildings in different illumination.
Kumari Chowk - the live goddess (Kathmandu)
Home of the Kumari or the live goddess. A young woman is appointed, which is a great honour for the family, and is kept in this building in the heart of Kathmandu. She's being carried everywhere she goes and must not bleed, so she's naturally replaced when she's 10-13 years old. Maybe you catch a glimpse of her in the window.
The Hindu Temple Pashupatinath (Kathmandu)
One of the country's most peculiar areas, with a Hindu temple (Hindus only), a holy tributary of the Ganges where women and children bathe, and with monkeys playing on the roofs of the temples. It also the home of Sadhus, holy men, who worship the goddess of destruction, Shiva, trough an ascetic lifestyle smoking a lot of pot. They're completely harmless and very relaxed!
The Medieval Town of Bhaktapur (Kathmandu)
This amazing town, where the time seems to have stopped, is situated in the valley of Kathmandu. Cars are not allowed in the centre of the town - a relief in Nepal - and the houses are decorated with impressive wooden carvings. A place near the capital where you can breathe freely.
Bodhnath Stupa (Nepal)
In the outskirts of Kathmandu, a large group of Tibetan refugees live around a huge stupa (a holy place with a relic or a sacred text inside). Here you'll see monks dressed in red walking around the stupa, while swinging their wheel of prayer. If you're lucky, you'll also experience a prayer, with meditation and music.
Dakshin Kali - a place of sacrifice (Nepal)
This place of sacrifice is located at the edge of valley, and after a beautiful ride you'll end up at temple, dedicated to the god of death, Kali. Here you can buy goats and chicken, whose fate awaits them a few hundred metres away. The Nepalese line up and wait for their turn, the animal is sacrificed and a few prayers are said. Afterwards the family has a picnic - the gods are happy and the Nepalese full.
Kumari Chowk - the live goddess (Nepal)
Home of the Kumari or the live goddess. A young woman is appointed, which is a great honour for the family, and is kept in this building in the heart of Kathmandu. She's being carried everywhere she goes and must not bleed, so she's naturally replaced when she's 10-13 years old. Maybe you catch a glimpse of her in the window.
Limbini (Nepal)
The greatest historical sight in Nepal and a target of pilgrimage for the world's 300 million Buddhists - Buddha's place of birth. Seldom visited in the moist and warmth of Terai is this jewel, a temple erected 300 years B.C.
