Soak up the spiritual atmosphere
Feel the hushed beauty of Bhaktapur and wander between crumbling temples. Get off the beaten path in sleepy Bandipur, a beautiful village lost in time, with narrow streets and traditional teahouses. Stroll along the shore of shimmering Lake Pokhara, with mountains reflected in its glassy waters and a laid-back vibe. Everywhere you go, you’ll feel touched by the peaceful magic of this snow-tipped Himalayan kingdom.
Trek into the sunset
Nepal is famous the world over for its trekking and the mountains have a romance all of their own. Hike through forests carpeted with blossoming rhododendron, climb twisting stone staircases etched into the hillside and gaze up over snowy peaks on all sides. Make your honeymoon truly epic with a trek to Everest Base Camp, stay at home with the village mayor on the Helambu Trek or head into the Annapurnas to watch pastel-colours flood the sky at sunrise over Poon Hill. Every trek will bring breathtaking views around every bend and you’ll reap the rewards for your efforts a thousand times over.
Go wild in the jungle
Chitwan National Park is one of Nepal’s most surprising treasures, a mass of lush, untamed jungle bursting with wildlife. Sleep in a bungalow run by a community project and set off at sunrise on a dawn canoe trip, where you’ll see crocodiles lazing on the riverbanks and herds of elephants heading down to the water. Take a walk through the wilderness, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife at every step and go in search of rhino on a jeep safari. Chitwan is the setting for so many adventures that will make your honeymoon memorable for decades to come.
