Nepal Sunrise and Sunset Tour
The Himalayan kingdom of Nepal is blessed with the most incredible landscape in the world. The magnificent colossal snow clad peaks in the north to the expansive marshlands and Gangetic plains of the south make traveling in Nepal a vivid and distinct adventure. Despite fast emerging as a tourist hot spot, Nepal has immaculately preserved its natural beauty and cultural heritage. Having a raw and unhampered beauty, one of the most prominent things on the ‘to do’ list of tourists in Nepal is watching the mesmerizing and surreal sunrise and sunset in the backdrop of the magical landscape.
Nepal is an open book and it is quite difficult to locate a particular region to watch the sunrise and sunset. The whole territory is so boisterously blessed with natural beauty that it becomes hard to locate an exact place that boasts of the most fabulous sunrise and sunset. However places such as Sarangkot, Nagarkot, Sauraha and Poon Hill offer excellent opportunities to the tourists such as bird watching, paragliding, sight seeing and simply exploring the wonderful scenic wilderness that make watching sunrise and sunset a remarkable experience.
Sarangkot has been a popular sunrise and sunset watching spot as from here you can have the panoramic views of Nepal’s signature mountains including Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. Catching the first rays of the rising sun at Sauraha is also a very spiritually enlightening experience. Poon Hill is strategically located to watch the sunset with all the birds returning to their nests, creating a distinct aura. The sunrise at Poon Hill can also offer a similar rejuvenating experience. The explosion of the sun rays on the bright snow peaks is an experience that should not be missed at any costs.
If you are in Nagarkot, watching the sun rise and set in the lap of the great Mt Everest is an unforgettable experience. The gorgeous mountain peak covered with snow and reflecting the effervescence of the morning sun can be a nostalgic and life changing incident.
Nepal is a peaceful territory depicting the perfect harmony between nature and mankind. The most gratifying aspect of watching sunset and sunrise in Nepal is that you can mingle with the perfect surroundings. The friendly local people embrace foreign tourists with their arms wide open. With so much hospitality and the natural beauty, watching sunset and sunrise in God’s own territory is nothing less than being a part of an artist’s rendition on canvas.
