Nepal is one of the the most beautiful country of Natural Beauty. Natural views from Nepal are seen so beautiful that everyone who see it keep on watching it keeping their mouth open. Some of the places and views detail can be seen below.
Everybody has heard of Mount Everest and few dared to even climb it because it is the highest mount. It has a height of 8,848 metres. In the 19th century , the Great Trigonometric Survey of India were the first that tried to measure the height of the Mount Everest. The Royal Geographical Society was the one that gice this name to the peak, after one of its predecesor ruler.
If you want to climb the mount Everest there are several trails available, some of them are easy or some are more difficult..Many climbers come every year and try to suceed. But this is not easy, because many of them get ill because of the altitude. The cold weather makes many victims, and the wind is not easy to bear. K2 i one of the most difficult trail and normal climbers need to be accompanoed by a professional mountain guide. This professional mountain guide costs prety much. The people from Nepal many most of their many from tourism, for example any climber need to obtain a permit that may cost even $20 000.
Most of the untrained climbers have problems in the “death zone”. This are is situated where the mountain has more then 8000 metres hight. If they are not careful how they are equiped, the climbers may suffer frostbite on the extremites of teir body, because the temperatures can get very low. On this part of the trails snow and ice is available, so the tourists may slip and fall. The winds also make many problems to the climbers. Because of the atmospheric pressure the oxygen level in the air is low and cause also problems to the tourists that managed to get thru this zone. This is why it is better that climbers use supplementary oxygen, with some special masks and bottled oxygen. In 1922 was the first time that some climbers succeeded to climg the Mount Everest with the help of bottled oxygen.
The flora and fauna is poor on this mount, because of its high altitude. Some species of birds have benn seen here, as for example the Bar-headed Goose and Chough.
Among all the places for mountain viewing in the Kathmandu Valley, Nagarkot is usually considered to be the best. The views go from Dhaulagir in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. On a clear day you can see Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha). You can also see Manaslu (8,463m), Ganesh Himal (7,111m), and Langtang (7,246m). Many people go up to Nagarkot in the afternoon, stay in a hotel in Nagarkot, and then get up at dawn to see the Himalaya Mountains during the sunrise.
Nagarkot is 32 kilometres east of Kathmandu, on the northeast edge of the Valley at an elevation of 2,175m. It is best to view the mountains in the early morning because it is more likely to be clear. There is a viewing tower next to the Club Himalaya Resort, where you get good views that has a coffee shop where you can sit inside. Many of the hotels also have good views.
There is a lookout tower south of the village where you can get a 360º view of the scenery. It is an easy one hour walk from the main hotel area. To get there you have to pass an army checkpoint, and they will only let you past in the morning.
You can go to Nagarkot in the afternoon and stay over night and view the mountain at sun rise.
You can usually get a good view of the mountains between October and March. During the monsoon from June to September it is unlikely to get a view of the mountains. Nagarkot can be much colder than in Kathmandu, especially in the winter.
There are some pleasant walks in the area. There are several good walk to or from Nagarkot. Many people take a bus or taxi up to Nagarkot and then walk down. Some good walks are down to Sankhi, Sundarijal, Changu Narayan, Bhaktapur, or to Banepa.
You have to pass through Bhaktapur to get to Nagarkot, so you could go to Bhaktapur in the early afternoon and go to Nagarkot for the sunset or to stay over-night.
Most people stay here for just one night. The main area of town is just a group of hotels.

- Bamboo Forests
- Machapuchare Base Camp
- Annapurna Base Camp
Fewa Lake ( Tal)Phewa Lake, Phewa Tal or Fewa Lake is a lake of Nepal located in the Pokhara Valley near Pokhara and Sarangkot. It is the second largest lake in Nepal and lying at an altitude of 784 m (2,572 ft) it covers an area of about 4.43 km2 (1.7 sq mi) with an average depth of about 8.6 m (28 ft) with maximum water depth is 22.8 m (75 ft) when measured with echo-sounder (depth measuring gauge; PLASTIMO ECHOTEST II) on 5 December 2009. Maximum water capacity of the lake is approximately 46 million cubic meters (37,000 acre feet). Annapurna looms in the distance from the lake and the lake is famous for the reflection of Mount Machapuchare on its surface. The holy Barahi mandir (temple) is situated on the island located in between in the lake.
The eastern Pokhara Valley receives irrigation water through a canal running from a reservoir by the Seti River in the north of the city. Phewa Lake is also used for commercial fishing. The tourist area is along the north shore of the lake (Lake Side and Dam Side). It is mainly made up of little shops, little hotels, restaurants and bars. The larger hotels can be found on the southern and south-eastern fringes of the Pokhara city, from where the view of the mountains, mainly Machapuchare, or Fishtail Mountain, is seen best. To the east of the valley are few smaller and few bigger lakes, the largest being Begnas Tal and Rupakot Tal. Begnas Tal is also known for its fishery projects.
Phewa Lake was slightly enlarged by damming. It is in danger of silting up because of the inflow during the monsoon. The outflowing water is partially used for hydro power. The dam collapsed in the late 1970s and it was rebuilt by the Chinese. The power plant is located about 100 m (330 ft) below at the bottom of the Phusre Khola gorge.
Rara Lake (Tal)
Rara Lake is the largest lake of Nepal, situated in Mugu district in the far western region of Nepal, near Gam Ghadi (district-headquarters of Mugu) and Talcha irstrip. It takes around 3 to 4 days of walking to reach Rara from Jumla.The surface is around 8 square kilometer and the perimeter 9 kilometer. The length of the lake is 5 kilometers and it is 2 kilometers wide, the altitude around 3060 meter and the max. depth is 167 meter.
Rara is an unique spot in Nepal. The lake is situated in the Rara National Park and because of its remote location and the violence/threat of a revolutionary communist group (Maoists) the lake has been visited by only few tourists in the past. Only in the second half of 2006 the situation improved and foreign visitors do not need to pay the high fee of around $100 per person to these Maoists anymore.
Due to its remoteness the surroundings of Rara Lake are both poor and quite unspoiled, which, for such a beautiful place, is very unusual in an era of extensive traveling and booming tourist business world wide. We hope the Nepali government, local residents, travel agencies and tourists will make efforts to conserve this area. Attention for the conservation is especially important at this very moment (year 2007/2008), since Rara might face a rise in the number of visitors now the region is more accessible and tourists will start searching for alternatives to the Annapurna region now roads are (being) build on both sides of the famous Thorong La pass, making the Annapurna Circuit Trekking and the Jomsom-Muktinath trekking less attractive.
The great massif of Kanchenjunga, lying in the far east of Nepal on the boarder with Sikkim, is the second highest mountain in Nepal, the third highest in the world. This outstanding trekking region offers the fit walkers a chance to experience the stunning contrasts of Nepal – from the dusty, lowland plains of Terai to the high alpine ridges adjacent to many of the greatest peaks of the world.
We fly east from Kathmandu to Biratnagar with our first views of Kanchenjunga (8598m), Jannu (7710m), Makalu (8481m) and Everest (8848m). After an overnight in Biratnagar, we take the short early morning flight to Suketar in Taplejung. Upon arrival, we are met by Sherpa team and after packing, we descend to Ghunsa Khola through terraced fields, rice paddies, and the neatly clustered villages of the Newar, Chhetri and Rai people who populate the area. Here conditions are almost tropical, and this section of the trek provide delightful interaction with people who have seen few visitors. As we move higher, dense forest of rhododendron, hemlock and fir replace the cultivated lower slopes. Tantalising mountain views become more and more dramatic with altitude: Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and, of course, Kanchenjunga are suddenly spread before us – four of the world’s five highest mountains!
Above the tree lines the views become more dramatic as we travel to the northern base camp - Pangpema, with the mighty north face of the mountain dominating all. On the way to Pangpema we cross a series of high passes as we move to the east – with their stunning views and will bring us to Tseram. The views on the trek are incredible: Kanchenjunga (8586m), Kambachen (7903m), Pyramid Peak (7123m), Tent Peak (7365m), Yalung Kang (8505m). This is one of the best treks available in Nepal: for those seeking a challenge, this walk is surely going to be a classic.
