The Maldives is a South Asian island country, located in the Indian Ocean, situated in the Arabian Sea. It lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India. The chain of 26 atolls stretches from Ihavandhippolhu Atoll in the north to the Addu City in the south. Comprising a territory spanning roughly 298 square kilometres (115 sq mi), the Maldives is one of the world’s most geographically dispersed countries, as well as the smallest Asian country by both land area and population, with around 427,756 inhabitants. Malé is the capital and most populated city, traditionally called the “King’s Island” for its central location.

The Maldives archipelago is located atop the Chagos-Maldives-Laccadive Ridge, a vast submarine mountain range in the Indian Ocean, which also forms a terrestrial ecoregion, together with the Chagos and the Lakshadweep. With an average ground-level elevation of 1.5 metres (4 ft 11 in) above sea level, it is the world’s lowest country, with even its highest natural point being the lowest in the world, at 2.4 metres (7 ft 10 in). Due to the subsequent risks posed by rising sea-levels, the government pledged in 2009 to make the Maldives a carbon-neutral country by 2019.

Cultural & Historical Tour

Cultural tourism is the subset of tourism concerned with a traveler’s engagement with a country or region’s culture, specifically the lifestyle of the people in those geographical areas, the history of those people, their art, architecture, religion(s), and other elements that helped shape their way of life.

Cultural tourism includes tourism in urban areas, particularly historic or large cities and their cultural facilities such as museums and theatres.

It is generally agreed that cultural tourists spend substantially more than standard tourists do. This form of tourism is also becoming generally more popular throughout the world, and a recent OECD report has highlighted the role that cultural tourism can play in regional development in different world regions.

Cultural tourism has been defined as ‘the movement of persons to cultural attractions away from their normal place of residence, with the intention to gather new information and experiences to satisfy their cultural needs’. These cultural needs can include the solidification of one’s own cultural identity, by observing the exotic “others”.

Home Stay

Homestay is still taken as a passive business for the uneducated, unemployed and dependent members of a family. If this trend continues, then homestay tourism can collapse within the next generation.

The spirit of Nepali tourism lies in the natural richness and its indigenous societies with their mystic cultures which can be best showcased through the homestay programme. Apart from the thousands of hotels and resorts catering to the tourists, the charm of homestay is also mounting.

Homestay, still an afterthought dimension of tourism in Nepal, is gradually becoming a dominant hospitality market. The main reason for its growth is it adds genuine socio-cultural components to a tourist’s experience. For many travel enthusiasts, homestay provides just the opportunity to assimilate with the local customs, relish the local cuisine and get to know the real local lifestyle. It is one among the inimitable chances to experience life as it is lived.

This particular hospitality industry must expand its offerings to move on. While upgrading homestay services, the stakeholders should strive to blend the domestic lifestyle with basic international standards, that is, offering the local experience in modern ways for international tourists. This would add more welcome doors at many virgin tourist destinations.

Homestays empower natives to become micro-entrepreneurs by capitalising on their way of life and space that already exist at home. It further monetise women’s household chores which otherwise would never have got any economic value and make women financially independent.

Despite some challenges, homestay programmes are growing. Namely Kavrepalanchok has registered more than 26 such homes while Makwanpur has at least 11 and Chitwan and Nuwakot have around 10 and 12 respectively. Gorkha, Ilam, Palpa, Syangja, Kailali and Chitlang too are on the bandwagon. The particular initiative will serve the government’s sustainable tourism development policies by building the capacity in the rural community.

Hot Air Balloon

Hot air ballooning in Nepal is one of the adventure activities which can make you feel like a bird flying in the high sky. In Nepal, ballooning offers the beautiful view of sunrise, the Himalayan ranges and peaks, and the mesmerizing lake of Pokhara city. It is conducted in Pokhara only, the city of lakes and caves. Pokhara is 204.4 km away from Kathmandu and you can reach there in about 6 hours by road, or you can take a scenic flight of 30 minutes too. Then, you can transfer to Dhanpus or Lauruk, from where the balloon ride will take off.
Hot air ballooning flies 500m above the Pokhara city providing the spectacular view of mountains like Annapurna range, the Fishtail (Machhapuchhre), Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, Lamjung Himal, lakes, forests, and as a whole valley. On a clear day, the observed scenario remains even more breathtaking. The landing of balloon takes place in the bank of Mardi River.
The best months for a hot air balloon flight are September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May which excludes the months of monsoon season (June, July, August). The flights take place daily during these months but also depend upon the wind and its direction of flow (eastward or westward across the valley). People recommend different mountain flights and aircraft motions, but hot air ballooning is much more promising one than others as you will be on the basket and can enjoy the nature swinging on the air.

This holy tour provides the sigh seen to places like Pashupatinath, changu Narayan temple, Manakamana, Pokhara to Muktinath via Jomsom, Devghat, and Janakpur.

Rafting & Kayaking

Nepal is well-known for its amazing mountains and treks, but those-in-the-know also rate it as one of the world’s best destinations for white water rafting. The rivers are long and clean, they’re surrounded by amazing mountain, hill and jungle landscapes, the guides are friendly and highly skilled and costs are low. Here’s all you need to know about white water rafting in Nepal.

One-day trips from Kathmandu and Pokhara
Kathmandu and Pokhara are the two cities in which most travellers base themselves and single-day white water rafting trips are possible from both places. If visitors are short on time, looking for a quick thrill or have never tried rafting before, a day trip is the best choice. Lunch, along with transportation, is provided (good old dal bhat) at a river camp afterwards.

Trisuli River
The put-in point for rafting on the Trisuli River is about a three to four hours’ drive from Kathmandu. It’s a nice bouncy river, but the rapids aren’t too big, making this an ideal river for beginners. The waters are usually quite warm, and from the river, pretty terraced farmland, local villages and enormously high hills can be seen. As this river also flows between Kathmandu and Pokhara (the highway runs parallel to it for some of the way) and river trip ends near the turn-off to Chitwan, it’s possible to arrange an onward transfer after the rafting fun, rather than returning to Kathmandu.

Bhote Kosi River
The Bhote Kosi River (meaning Tibetan river) is a little closer to Kathmandu, at two to three hours to the north-east. The Bhote Kosi used to have a longer raftable stretch, but due to a major landslide in 2014, only a shorter section remains navigable. Still, there’s enough for plenty of fun for a couple of hours and the water here is cool and refreshing – particularly good for the hotter months. There are nice river camps along the way here to stay for the night if you wish (although be warned that they get busy – and noisy – with partying Kathmandu students on the weekends).

Seti River
From Pokhara, rafting the Upper Seti is the best single-day option. At 90 minutes, trips on the Seti are a little shorter than the options from Kathmandu, but it’s much more accessible, at only a 30-minute drive away. It’s also chock-full of class three and four rapids and comes with glorious views of the Annapurna. Short and sweet.

Multi-day trips
With more time in Nepal, multi-day trips that head deep into the wilderness can be taken, allowing rafters to see the variety of the Nepali landscape and spend some time camping on white-sand river beaches. Everyone gets a private tent (or can sleep under the stars) and the guides do a great job cooking tasty and healthy meals on campfires.

Kali Gandaki River
The Kali Gandaki River is accessible from Pokhara. This river flows down through the Kali Gandaki Gorge, which is the deepest gorge in the world, at 5,571 metres at one point. Imagine the views bobbing through that! Kali Gandaki trips generally last three days, so they are another good option for a shorter trip.

Sun Kosi River
The Sun Kosi, or ‘river of gold’, is a couple of hours’ drive from Kathmandu and ends close to the Indian border, in south-eastern Nepal. The eight-day trip is a classic and a favourite among rafters and kayakers alike. The beaches and river sparkle with the golden sand, the camping beaches are clean and remote, the high hill scenery gives way to the flat plains of the Terai and there are plenty of mid- and big-sized rapids for plenty of fun.

Tamur River
Two of Nepal’s best activities – trekking and rafting – come together on the Tamur River trip. On this 12-day expedition, the first three days are spent trekking in the mountains, reaching altitudes of over 3,000 metres and having the kayaks and rafts carried by porters! The rapids on this river are quite challenging, so they are best suited for people with some white water experience.

Karnali River
The Karnali River runs through Western Nepal, an extremely remote and under-developed part of the country. Ten-day river expeditions are one of the few ways to see the region and pass along clear blue waters, jungles, amazing rock formations and end near Bardia National Park. The Karnali River is threatened by a hydropower project, however, so it would be a good idea to take this trip sooner rather than later.

Rafting + Kayaking
Where white water rafts can go, so can kayaks. Although visitors can learn to kayak in Nepal and go on kayak-only trips, it’s also possible to combine the two activities. This is a particularly good idea for beginner or intermediate kayakers who want to improve their skills, but who may not be confident kayaking all day, every day on a longer trip. It’s also a good idea for groups of friends or couples travelling together, who may have different skills and interests.

Best time to Go
The peak tourism seasons in Nepal are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). At these times, the weather is at its best, being hot but not uncomfortably so, and there’s usually minimal or no rain.
Water levels are an important factor for white water rafting. In the spring, water levels can be quite low, as at this time, it has been the longest since the heavy rains of monsoon. On some rivers (such as the Bhote Kosi) the flow can be a bit low, meaning it’s common to get stuck on the rocks! This isn’t usually a major problem but can be an inconvenience and slow down the fun. The wind on some rivers (such as the Karnali) can be an annoyance in this season, too.
In autumn, after the monsoon, water levels are at their highest. This can make for some exciting rapids – sometimes a bit too exciting earlier in the season (around September)! By late November, the nights are getting quite cold for camping on beaches, but in other respects, this is the best time to go.

Trekking & Hiking

Nepal is home to network of trails also called the Great Himalaya Trails, an extensive trail system that covers Nepal from Humla and Darchula in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. The diversity of trekking in Nepal cannot be found in any other region of the world. In fact, the lowest point in Nepal is 59 m above sea-level in the Terai region while the highest point is Everest, 8,848 m above sea-level, the two points are, in a straight line, only 200 kilometres apart.
The majority of visitors to Nepal come in via the Tribuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. It is in Kathmandu that trekkers need to acquire their permits and other documentation, either from a trekking agent or from the appropriate offices. These documents will be checked along the trekking route. For those with little time to spend in Nepal there are half-day hikes from Kathmandu to witness breathtaking Himalayan views otherwise trek for weeks over stunning challenging mountain passes.
Up to the mid 1960s only a few trekkers had generally visited Nepal and back then as part of groups of expedition followers. Many of the big expeditions of the day encouraged trekkers to sign up in an attempt to help balance the funding.
Trekking in Nepal today is completely different to that of the 1960s. In all the main trekking areas, the National Parks and Conservation Areas lodges have been established where trekkers can find accommodation, food and meet other trekkers and locals along the way. The majorities of the trails are well maintained and in many cases are sign-posted.
The lodges are well appointed and have facilities for charging batteries and the larger villages often have email facilities. The length, the difficulty and timing of the treks vary greatly and to add to that once outside of the main trekking areas transport becomes more problematic and often involves at least two journeys made on domestic scheduled flights.
The three main trekking areas and therefore the most easily accessible are the Everest, Langtang and the Annapurna regions. Annapurna and Langtang have a slight advantage in so much that they can be reached via road connections. Trekkers are of course rewarded when they venture further afield as well! Great Himalaya Trails has extensive information on other trekking regions, which are accessible by domestic flights, such as Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Dolpo, and the Far West. Several days of trekking is required to reach the higher mountain areas from the local centers of population and administration.
Nepal has six distinct and diverse vegetation zones ranging from Tropical below a 1,000 m through Sub-tropical 100m – 200m, Lower Temperate 1,700 m – 2,700 m, Upper Temperate 2,400 m – 3,000 m, Subalpine 3,000 m – 4,000 m and Alpine 4,000 m to the snowline above the snowline it is a Himalaya tundra like wilderness. Each of these zones is well populated with the appropriate flora and fauna, although sometimes the rarer examples might be hard to find.
Domestic flights generally occur early morning, and so if two domestic flights are required to reach the start of the trek, appropriate timing should be allowed. Although the popular treks in Kanchenjunga, Everest, Manaslu, Annapurna are able to provide lodge accommodation the less frequented treks in those areas and also in other areas west of Annapurna will generally require camping style trek support.
Trekkers can find a trail for any time of year. The southern areas of Nepal receive higher levels of precipitation. However, some routes along the Great Himalaya Trails lie in the rain shadow, a dry area on the leeward side of a mountains namely Mustang to the north of Annapurna and Manaslu, Dolpo to the north of Dhaulagiri and the far west of Nepal to the north of Saipal Himal. Post monsoon the weather tends to be clearer. Winter is good but colder with shorter days and spring can be affected by seasonal rain and snow storms. Summer is short and is quickly followed by the monsoons.
However, the rains are not continuous for 24 hours a day and of course the rains bring the flowers to life. It is also a perfect time to consider one of the regions in the rain shadow which typically feature a more barren Tibetan type scenery as opposed to the greenness of other areas.
It is important for tourists to know that the main income generating activity of the people from the hill regions is tourism, and they typically earn wages working as trekking porter or guide. Hiring a porter does not mean that you are weak, it means you value the Nepali culture, you are providing an extended Nepali family with an income and at the same time you are making a friend and trekking with a local person who is well versed in the local cultures, festivals, and all the other issues that can turn a good trek into an outstanding experience of a life time.
It is obviously possible to trek alone or without a Nepali guide, but would you know what to do in a major storm, zero visibility and temperatures and at possibly 5,000 m? Make sure you have all the correct permits as required, and be environmentally and culturally aware.
