Since most of the places in Nepal have started to get urbanised, natural resources have been replaced with houses and modern equipment. Now, people are starting to notice the scarcity of greenery and its importance. Many are trying to enjoy themselves in nature and again travel for the cause. This whole process can be referred to as ecotourism.
Here are few places in Nepal that are best for ecotourism:
1. Kathmandu valley
The capital city of the country, Kathmandu, and its adjacent districts–Lalitpur and Bhaktapur–are located in the hilly region. The valley of three districts is filled with hills full of forests, woods, rivers, waterfalls, and various cultural importance, providing a variety of destinations for ecotourism.
Chitwan is mainly known for its lust jungles which house the Chitwan National Park. As a jewel of Nepal, the park is loved by many people and has become a popular destination for vacations and relaxation. Every year, there are lots and lots of people entering Chitwan to explore the national park.
The Kaski district is said to be a package full of adventure and beautiful places in Nepal. One such place is Pokhara where one can enjoy boating in the Phewa lake that has Tal Barahi temple at its centre and other beautiful lakes such as Rupa and Begnas. Other attractions such as Mahendra cave and Bat cave are famously loved by the visitors and there is Gupateshwor cave that takes tourists directly below the world-famous Devi’s Fall.
Solukhumbu is the only place on this earth that has 99 named mountains in a single place along with the world’s highest peak Mt Everest and other great mountains such as Mt Lhotse, Ama Dablam. So, it is obvious that one can enjoy the best scenery of Mt Everest, Mt Lhotse, Mt Nuptse, and many other mountains. Tourists can do so from Namche Bazaar itself. The whole district holds a great potential to be one of the best ecotourism destinations in Nepal.
