What is Nepal famous for? Food|Places|Pride


“So, what is Nepal famous for? Is it the spicy foods or the natural beauty? In my opinion Nepal is famous for everything; mountaineering, honey hunting, trekking, expeditions and many more real life adventures.

First of all, Nepal is the home of the 8 highest peaks in the world as well as the birthplace of Lord Buddha (Light of Asia) too. Putting aside about mountains, you won’t get disappoint from foods of Nepal too.

So, without taking any time, here are some of the best reasons why Nepal is famous around the world.

1) Home of Highest Mountains in the World



As mentioned earlier, the first thing that makes Nepal famous for is Mountains/peaks. The most iconic and famous peak named Mt. Everest is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Similarly, the other highest mountains excluding Mount Everest are

Kanchenjunga 8598 meters
Lhotse 8,516 meters
Makalu 8,463 meters
Cho Oyu 8,201 meters
Dhaulagiri 8,167 meters
Manaslu 8,163 meters
Annapurna 8,091 meters

Furthermore, many mountains/peaks are opened for the expedition as well as trekking on base camps. That is why people love doing adventure in Nepal, challenging their way to the summit.

And the most famous trekking trail in Nepal that people love is Everest Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Likewise, there are many options rather than trekking only in Nepal like rock climbing, honey hunting, Heli-ride tour, and many more.

2) Land of Brave Gurkha

“If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or he is Gurkha”


There is a famous quote by Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, Indian Chief of Army Staff If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha.” The quote was written after seeing the bravery of Gurkha who had taken part in World war I and II.

Still, many powerful countries across the world like the United Kingdom, United States, France, India, etc recruit Gurkha soldiers due to their capabilities. This reason also renown the name of Nepal.

3) UNESCO World Heritage Sites
