Backpacking Destinations for the Bucket List
Nepal is a classic destination for backpacking on a budget. Home of Mount Everest and the Garden of Dreams, this country shares a border with Tibet and India. Head to Birgunj, the nation’s commercial capital, to see the Durga Temple, clock tower, and Shankar Acharya Gate, where India meets Nepal. If you’re looking for something a bit more spiritual, try Lumbini, where Lord Buddha was born 2500 years ago. In the wake of the 2015 earthquake, Nepal worked quickly to repair their tourism infrastructure, and wallet-friendly country is once again open for business. Four for you Nepal, you GO Nepal!
