The ancient cities and towns like Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan holds many hidden places and treasures that amazes visitors with a glance. You can also visit museums that display many architectural beauty of the historical city. While you are in Kathmandu, you might want to taste some of the authentic Nepali dishes and attend some traditional workshop like making of Thanka, attend bamboo flute making or madal making workshop, pottery making workshop or attend workshop on ‘Ranjana Lipi’ the historical text of the people of Kathmandu valley.

The historical temple of Pahsupatinath holds occasional musical performances with fire torches (arati) every full moon evening. This is a great opportunity to witness a mystical atmosphere of the temple. You can watch the whole performance from a distance across the river.

You can also have a leisurely spree in Thamel or Lakeside of Kathmandu and Pokhara to find souvenirs, try out outstanding restaurants with new cuisines, visit spa, sauna, casinos and bars. There are many hidden caves, river gorges and temples just beneath the bustling Pokhara city.

If you visit the Annapurna region, you can go on fossil hunting in the Kali Gandaki River.  You don’t need to dive in to the river; you can find some along the river banks and luckily might find one of the oldest of the fossils. Another great adventure in the high parts of the mountains is going on a honey hunting trip with the locals. The honey from these parts hold medicinal value and it is also hallucinogenic on consuming large amount.

In Chitwan, you can observe or participate in the widely celebrated elephant polo tournament which is held around winter (probably November) every year. It is termed as the ‘sport of kings’ and often related to royalty. Thousands of visitors gather to watch the grand tournament from around the world as well as from outside the country. To participate in the competition, it costs around 600 USD, but you need to be regularly trained in the sport as it is much difficult than it seems with strict rules.

Next, if you ever visit the Khumbu region (Everest region) you can come visit a Tibetan Buddhist monastery that displays a rare yeti skull in a glass cabinet. The upper Himalayan range around the Dolpo region is a popular place to sight the extraordinary yarsagumba, a type of fungus emerged out of the infected caterpillar’s head. Once you understand that it is not a plant but once a live caterpillar body, it will blow your mind. It is used as an ancient Chinese medicine and is highly expensive. The locals highly depend on harvesting the medicinal fungus.

If you arrive during the month of October-November, you can expect a weeklong celebration of Dashain and Tihar festivals especially in the hindu communities. You can observe the colorful festival along with friends and locals. You will be amazed to find dogs, cows and crows being worshipped during Tihar.
