Food is a massive part of the Nepalese culture from Newari food to Tibetan food to just the classic Dal Bhat. There is a saying that goes like Dal Bhat power 24-hour. Dal Bhat is basically the local traditional Nepalese meal. Dal Bhat usually consists of a massive plate of rice, a curry whether that's a vegetable or chicken or buff and then a dal lentil soup which is absolutely delicious. And then you often have these little crackers or chapati.
The great thing about having Dal Bhat is once you finish one portion, they will give you another portion and it keeps coming and coming. It's great value for money and it tastes absolutely delicious. Also, you have to try the Newari food if you are in Kathmandu. There are so many different places to go to just aside from trekking for example you have places like Kathmandu which is full of history or things like Pokhara which is more nature and beautiful surrounding mountains and then you also have places like Chitwan which is a national park.
If you go west or east then you get into the really remote places of Nepal where not many tourists go and then of course you have the incredible mighty Himalayas. Trekking is obviously one of the biggest attractions when it comes to going to Nepal for a lot of people. 95 percent of people actually visit Nepal for trekking activities because the mountains and the Himalayas are absolutely incredible.
