The Wonders of Nepal

The Wonders of Nepal

Nepal is not a travel destination one often hears about. Known for containing Mount Everest and 8 of the world’s tallest mountains, the views and natural surroundings are absolutely breathtaking. Nepal is located in the Himalayas, bordered to the west, east and south by the Republic of India and to the north by the People’s Republic of China. Although it is not a common vacation destination, the pristine environment is sure to attract a lot of adventure junkies and nature lovers. With Nepal’s rich cultural history and religious influence, one should expect to see a lot of monasteries and temples visited by people from all over the world. Photographer, Tabitha Mee from Illuminate Photography and her husband, had the privilege to visit this colourful country, and they shared their exciting and humbling travel experience with us.



What to see and do

Much to my hubby’s dismay, I also fell in love with a touristy area called Thamel. It was an absolute hippy heaven – streets lined with shops selling colourful clothes, jewellery, bags and tea. Lots and lots of tea! Being a bit of a boho at heart, I spent many hours wondering the streets there and could have easily spent many more. It is ridiculous how well-priced everything is there! Besides viewing those wondrous mountains and shopping to my heart’s content, I’d say a definite must-do is to have a meal in the home of a Nepali family! What you will learn is that Nepali people are the most hospitable people you can imagine. They will serve you special food they rarely eat themselves, and most probably invite you to sleep over. We did make a point of seeing a variety of touristy sites and even got to ride on the back of an elephant in the Chitwan National park, but what will stand out most to us is the precious moments we got to spend with locals. We totally fell in love with the people of Nepal!


We really enjoyed the over-supply of fruit and vegetables that was available for sale on street corners. The Nepali people have a very healthy diet and as a result we both came home having lost a few kg’s! Our favourite dish there, however, was something they call “momos”, which is a traditional Nepali dumpling-type food filled with vegetables or buffalo meat (they don’t eat beef there), it is absolutely delicious! Beside that, they also have plenty of really amazing restaurants catered towards tourists. One of our regulars was a restaurant called the Roadhouse Café, which makes amazing wood-fired pizza. We also indulged in a really great steak at a lovely restaurant in Pokhara called Lemon tree.


We stayed in the greatest variety of accommodation, varying from a bug-infested room in a house with no windows, to a pretty nice hotel in Pokhara. In a country where electricity is sporadic and humidity levels are high, we appreciated any place that offered us showers, wi-fi and a fan.
