Nepal is the holiday destination for many international tourists, while some also visit here for pilgrimage, trekking and adventure sports, among several other reasons. If you also count the number of domestic tourists the volume of people in some areas, both explored and unexplored, becomes overwhelming. Here are the top ten places to visit in Nepal, prepared with the help of the 2017 statistics and Sharad Pradhan, media consultant at Nepal Tourism Board (NTB).
1. Kathmandu Valley
One could say the city receives most number of tourists because of the presence of the only international airport here, but tourists don’t only travel by airplanes, do they? According to NTB, most number of international tourists that visited Nepal in 2017 (January-October) are Indians (133,029) and most of them seem to take the land routes. The two primary destinations for them are Lumbini and Kathmandu.
