Nepal Filming Locations – Himalaya

Nepal is synonymous with the Himalayas. It is only natural that they are one of the most coveted Nepal filming locations. The iconic snowcapped peaks, crystal clear lakes, and endless views – it is one of Mother Nature’s greatest gifts. For all its splendor, filming in Himalaya is not simple. You will need full production assistance to make it happen. Many of the best vantage points are difficult to reach and so require careful logistical planning.

Knowledge of weather patterns is also vital to avoid days sitting still, waiting for the mist to clear. Another complicated but essential element is film permits. Permits for filming at elevation are stricter because of the safety issues. There are also additional permits required for the many heritage sites and national parks spread across this vast mountain landscape.  A production in the Himalayas will be an unforgettable experience. Nepal Fixers makes sure you will remember with good memories.

Nepal Filming Locations – Kathmandu

Kathmandu is like Pandora’s Box. You never know what you will uncover with every alley that you walk through. Filming in Kathmandu is ideal for when you want a feeling of mystery in your film piece.  There is also plenty of variety in Nepal filming locations just in this single city. See the stark contrast between the perfectly manicured Garden of Dreams and the organized chaos of Asan Tole and its countless vendors. Admire the intricacies of Durbar Square or the stark white walls of Hanuman Dhoka. Film permits in Nepal are not a simple system and this will become apparent in productions in Kathmandu. Gaining access for filming to its tourist attractions and heritage sites requires careful coordination with several parties. Nepal Fixers is perfectly familiar with this system and works it in your favor.

Nepal Filming Locations – Terai

To find nature in Nepal filming locations, visit the southern region of Terai. This region attracts the most tourists but the national parks and local towns have managed to still stay quaint. The principal road between Pokhara and Kathmandu runs through this landscape. A succession of winding roads, steep falls, and varying quality of tarmac. This full-day drive alone is a memorable experience for your production company. When covering Buddhism, your production company will want to visit Terai. This is where you find Lumbini and Maya Devi temple, the birthplace of the Buddha. You will want to work closely with our location scout to get the film permits for this historic site. The cultural connection with Buddhism is also exemplified in the Terai. This is where you find Buddhist temples and monasteries from many different countries, including the Zhong Hua Chinese Buddhist Monastery and the Royal Thai Buddhist Monastery.
