The remote areas of Nepal are still not connected by road. So to get to these places you can either walk or go horseback riding. Horses are a means of transportation especially in the trans-Himalayan region, i.e., behind the tall mountains or the southern rim of the Tibetan plateau. You can go horse riding in any part of the country. It can be arranged for a few hours or a month-long journey to suit oneself.
Nepal has several ancient pilgrimage sites. Each temple is attached to a legend or belief that glorifies the miraculous powers of its deity. The Kathmandu Valley is home to the famous Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Stupa and several other famous temples. Hundreds of famous temples are located in and around the Kathmandu Valley.
Some well-known pilgrimage sites are: Barah Chhetra, Halesi Mahadev, Janakpur, Pathibhara and Tengboche in east Nepal; Manakamana, Gorkha, Lumbini, Muktinath, Gosainkunda, Tansen and Kathmandu Valley in central Nepal; and Swargadwari and Khaptad Ashram in west Nepal.
Paragliding is a relatively new adventure sport in Nepal, and is the simplest, safest and least expensive way of discovering the joys of flying alone to experience the aerial views of the magnificent Himalayas. Sarangkot, at 1,592 m above Lakeside in Pokhara Valley, is the jumping off point for paragliders. From here, one can take in stunning views of three of the world’s Eight Thousanders, namely, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu.
The only cable car in Nepal takes you on a pilgrimage tour, up to the abode of the wish-fulfilling Goddess Manakamana, from Kurintar in Mugling.
