Langtang national park
Langtang National Park is a wonderful park located in the heart of the Himalayas. It is a valley in which it is possible to hike. Whether you sleep in a tent or in lodges, you’ll be surrounded by ridiculous sceneries, inhabitated by herds of yaks. It is also easily accessible, as it is located at less than 50 kilometers from the capital.
Mt. Everest ( Sagarmatha national park)
Who’s never heard of Mt. Everest? It is the highest peak in the world, rising up to 8850 meters. Fascinating not only for its curious geological formations, the wildlife is also very peculiar: snow cheetahs and smalls pandas can be seen. Many hikes are offered, often passing by the very pretty Gokyo Lake.
Chitawan national park
This park is very interesting for its amazing wildlife; from the Bengal tigers to hundreds of bird species, the animals are the kings of the region. Chitawan, meaning “heart of the jungle”, is found along the foot of the Himalayas, taking the park to another level of greatness. The Narayani river also sneaks its curves all around the park.
