Raj – Welcome to Nepal ! Episodul 2.

Astazi continuam interviul cu Raj… si printre altele sugereaza un tur care ar acoperi the best of Nepal.

As dori sa vad zone pitoresti natural. Ce pot vedea ? Care sunt conditiile ?
Natura este extrem de frumoasa in tot Nepalul, Poti sa faci expeditii, catarari, dar si tururi cu elicopterul, safari, rafting, ai foarte multe optiuni.

Exista niste date speciale cand merita sa vi ?
Nepalul merita vizitat tot timpul anului. Exista niste festivaluri locale cum ar fi Biscuit Jatra sau Ghode Jatra care atrag turistii. Dashain si Tihar sunt principalele festivaluri nepaleze care au loc in septembrie – octombrie sau Shiva Ratri, sarbatorirea nasterii zeului hindus Shiva, un festival foarte important. Merita vazut si festivalul Teej al femeilor nepaleze.

Nepalul este totusi o tara saraca, mi-e teama sa nu fie conditii prea bune in hoteluri…
Nepalul are o gama larga de hoteluri de la hoteluri de 5 stele la cele fara clasificare care costa cativa dolari. Exista facilitati de gazduire in toate zonele de trekking, iar in orase si alte destinatii turistice, exista Luxury Hotel, Heritage Hotel, Superior Hotel , Tourist Class Hotel , Wildlife Resort, Golf resort, Lodges, Camps, etc, asa ca nu ai de ce sa-ti fie teama. Majoritatea sunt curate, frumoase si foarte ospitaliere.

OK, OK, hai sa vorbim de costuri, care sunt preturile ?.
Hotelurile superioare costa cam 50 – 100 USD pe zi, dar poti gasi si cazare foarte buna si la 10 USD. Exista multe restaurante care ofera mancare europeana la standard internationale cu meniu aprobat de comitetele locale de supraveghere turistica.

Daca as dori sa vizitez tarile invecinate, poti sa ma ajuti cu tururi, hoteluri si vize si in afara Nepalului – Tibet, Bhutan sau India.
Sigur, pot face arangamente de calatorie si pentru aceste tari la preturi rezonabile, avem parteneri peste tot.

Am nevoie de viza pentru Nepal ? Cum pot sa o obtin ?
Toti cetatenii straini, cu exceptia cetatenilor indieni au nevoie de viza pentru a intra in Nepal. Viza se poate obtine de la ambasadele si consulatele nepaleze din strainatate, dar si de la birourile de la punctele de intrare in Nepal, direct cand sosesti din strainatate. Punctele de frontiera la care poti obtine viza pe loc sunt:
• Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu
• Kakarvitta (Jhapa) (Estul Nepalului, granita cu India)
• Birgunj, (Parsa) (Sudul Nepalului, granita cu India)
• Kodari (Sindhupalchok) (Nordul Nepalului, granita cu Tibet)
• Belahiya, (Bhaieahwa) (Vestul Nepalului, granita cu India)

Daca as vrea sa vizitez tot Nepalul, ce program mi-ai recomanda ?
Pot sa recomand tuturor calatorilor programele noastre speciale.
Good Karma Trekking ofera:
Sightseeing tour – Kathmandu
Kathmandu ofera o gama larga de monumente care merita descoperite. Fondat in secolul VIII, Kathmandu este format din 3 orase regale, foste capitale de regate – Kathmandu, Patan si Bhaktapur (Bhadgaon), pline de palate, temple, muzee, piete si multe alte atractii.
