Nepal

Terracotta-colored palaces, pagodas, temples and shrines

Nepal JOURNEYS

Sunbeams over the Himalayas

Carefully the first rays of the sun rise above the Himalayas . But in the twilight there is already a lot of activity in the Nepalese villages at the foot of these mountains. A pan is simmering in the yard. People work hard in the countryside, so concentrates are needed: rice. For the average Nepali, it's on the menu twice a day. The white rice, bath, is mixed with dal, a watery mixture of lentils and some vegetables. Preferably a little piro, spicy seasoned. No problem for an empty stomach either. A tough day awaits visitors passing through: a trekking through the Himalayas . And so a dal bath awaits them too. But guests are taken into account, a little fresh cow's milk makes breakfast a little less sharp on the tongue.

How different is life in Kathmandu . But here too the days start early. If you are looking for a place between the temples on Durbar Square, you will see how the capital slowly awakens. A motorbike speeding across the square startles the sleepy city. It's time to get going. But once all the merchants have displayed their wares, life breaks loose. Smells, colors and sounds fill the narrow streets of the old city center Thamel . Streets that get narrower every minute due to the increasing number of people and the thick rows of piled up merchandise.

But there is more between the capital and the countryside. The ancient royal capital ofBhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley, on the ancient trade route between India and Tibet. Its terracotta-colored palaces, pagodas, temples and shrines suffered greatly from the April 2015 earthquake, but are now under reconstruction. The city of Pokhara , located on Lake Phewa where the snow-capped Himalayan peaks reflect in undulating water. And the Chitwan National Park is also one of the highlights of this country. Nothing in Nepal is gray except for the elephants and rhinos that roam here.

INSPIRATION FOR Nepal

EXPERIENCE NepalWITH UNTAMED

Dal Bhat & Momo

The menu in Nepal is a list of delights. Much seems taken from neighboring India. But Nepal also has its own specialties. Preferably eaten by hand

Lumbini

Follow in the footsteps of the Buddha. From the place where he was born to the tree under which he meditated. In Lumbini there is still serene atmosphere that the Buddha spread here centuries ago

Kathmandu

Even without the ancient temples and palaces, Kathmandu is a feast for the eyes. But tradition and culture seep through everyday life on all sides. From the colourful kurtas to the traditional architecture of streets and buildings

Pokhara

Pokhara has many faces. The adrenaline rushes through the streets of this adventure sports centre. Calm reigns on the mirror-smooth Phewa Lake. And the hippie vibe of the 1960s never quite left the city

Bhaktapur

Between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, Bhaktapur was the center of the mighty Malla kingdom. In these days the king city counted 172 temples. Many of these sanctuaries are still standing today

Chitwan National Park

The lowlands of the Terai are shrouded in high elephant grass. Here in southwestern Nepal it is always warm. Tropical forests and grasslands alternate, three major rivers provide the region with water

Patan

The second city of the Kathmandu Valley

Bardia National Park

To visit Bardia you need to get off the beaten track. This undiscovered nature park in the far west of Nepal is not on the route, not along the main road, but there is an exit. An exit you can't miss

Himalayan flights

Climbing the peaks is only for a few. But the views are accessible to everyone. A helicopter brings you on an equal level with the almost irrepressible mountains

Tibetan settlement Tashi Palkhel

The peaks of the Himalayas are not high enough to stop tibetan influence

Himalayan Trekking

The paths have already had many footsteps to follow. The views are beautiful, but if you really want to experience the mountains, make a trek.

Festivals

The drumming, the horns and the music are already betraying it. But as soon as the first masked dancers appear on the street, you're sure. You have ended up in one of Nepal's many festivals
