It has pretty much been predetermined that Nepal is one of the major tourist hotspots and is on the list of millions around the world. Famous for its cultural diversity, lush vegetations, rare animals and birds, thundering rivers, gorgeous hills, extreme sports, and the enormous mountains, Nepal is truly a natural phenomenon. Without seeming biased, we have to accept the fact that Nepal is one of the most beautiful countries out there and had it not been for the years of political instability, Nepal could have and should have been a global powerhouse as well. But we are not here to talk about politics, rather we want to put a list of underrated places in Nepal that doesn’t get enough mentions and why they should be on your bucket list.
While there are places and trails like the Everest Base Camp, Pokhara, Annapurna Base Camp, Kathmandu Valley, etc that people have heard of and attracts tourists by the millions, there are also less heard of places that should deserve more attention. Check out some of the most underrated places in Nepal below:
Damodar Kunda Tour
According to ancient Hindu mythology, Damodar Kunda is one of the holiest places of Nepal and the lake is considered as the head of Lord Bishnu. Even though it holds such cultural significance, it is criminally underrated and not many people have heard of the place. Apart from being a holy site, it’s beauty is also mesmerising. Damodar Kunda is located in the Upper Mustang region of Nepal and lies at an altitude of 4890m. It is believed that a person should visit Damodar Kunda at least once in his/her lifetime and take a holy bath in the lake which is believed to take away all the sins done by the person in their current and previous life.
Global Holiday Adventure has a special holiday package for the Damodar Kunda Tour and we highly encourage everyone to visit the place and we assure you that you will not get disappointed.
Langtang Valley Trek
It is not news that Nepal is a heaven for trekkers and adventurers and while the limelight always reaches places such as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek, not many people have tried the Langtang Valley Trek. We are here to tell you that you are missing out on such a fascinating trail.
Langtang Valley Trek is a relatively short trek and a unique one at that. Langtang Valley is an isolated place where you can experience a true Tamang and Sherpa culture of the Himalaya. Its starting point is also only 117km from Kathmandu, so you don’t have to wait much to get started. Apart from the rich Sherpa culture, you will also catch glimpses of massive Langtang Mountain Range and by the way, it is also home to the cute but endangered Red Panda. So, if lucky, you might also see them scurrying around.
Global Holiday Adventure has a special 11 days trek available for the Langtang Valley Trek and we’ll make sure you have the best trekking experience there.
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Tour

Dhampus Sarangkot Trek
Dhampus Sarangkot Trek is a short and easy trekking trail situated near the metropolitan of Pokhara. Even though the trail is nothing short of extraordinary and provides one of the best views of the Annapurna Massif, it has remained relatively unknown among the tourists. So, we highly encourage any potential visitors to try this trek.
The view of sky-kissing mountains is mesmerising on its own but the trail is even more famous for its view of the sunrise and the sunset. The top of Sarangkot is also the perfect place to get your jaw-dropped by the beauty of the city of Pokhara, Machhapuchhre Mountain (Fish Tail Mountain) and Phewa Lake.
Contact us for further details and to make your reservation.
Upper Mustang Bike Tour
While the Upper Mustang Trek is a popular choice among the tourists and the locals alike, the Bike Tour of the region is still not as popular as its counterpart. Many people already know the offerings that the Upper Mustang has for its visitor but to truly appreciate its pristine sceneries and beauty, the Bike Tour is the way to go!
Just imagine yourself riding an off-road Motorcycle with your company along the dusty gravel road and the overwhelming feeling of freedom that engulfs you. If that doesn’t draw your attention I don’t know what does! The off-road is a treeless barren area full gorgeous view of the plateau, small patches of settlement here and there and a pristine view of the Annapurna massif. Just reading about it is an experience, wonder how exciting it will be to actually live it!
