It combines the magnificent Himalayan views, captivating hill villages, beautiful golden temples, lush jungles, and diverse wildlife to make one of the most interesting destinations in the world. Besides its incredible natural scenery, Nepal has also been attracting international visitors for its healthcare. Due to the availability of high-quality medical facilities, skilled medical professionals, and relatively more affordable medical treatments, international medical tourists travel to this country to receive excellent medical care, particularly eye treatments. Other sought-after procedures include dental works, kidney and lung transplants, orthopedics, and gastroenterology. Medical tourists choose Nepal as their destination is the chance to recover in a beautiful environment.

Popular Cities and Regions in Nepal

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is situated in a hilly region near the confluence of the Vishnumati and Bagmati rivers. This city is historic and full of spiritual energy. It is truly unique and different from anywhere else in the world. In Kathmandu, visitors can visit Hanuman Dhoka (the royal palace), see the Itum Bahal, admire the Garden of Dreams (Swapna Bagaicha), or explore Asan Tole. Another popular destination is Pokhara. Stretched along the shores of Phewa Lake, it offers visitors a chance to unwind and amazing mountain adventures. This lakeside town is the perfect destination for those who want to escape the chaotic Kathmandu or simply to relax after trekking the Himalayas. Some of the more popular things to do in this city are to watch the sunrise from Sarangkot Viewpoint, admire the picturesque shores of Phewa Lake, hike the Annapurna Circuit, or paraglide to get beautiful views of the city.
