Nepal

Jump to last reply

Off to Nepal next Tuesday, for our first visit to the country.
We're in the country for 5 weeks, non-trekking, and just intend to pace ourselves and enjoy whatever we encounter.

We're flying Etihad from LHR, with a flight change in Abu Dhabi.
I've arranged accommodation in Kathmandu, just outside of the Ring Road, for a week.

This is where we're staying...

Family run, and looks like great vfm, and has some v.positive reports. Picking us up from the airport too.

Then we'll take a Tourist Bus to Pokhara, staying for just over a week at a place that doesn't advertise, and is only recommended by word-of-mouth. Intend having a couple of nights in Dhampus and Bandipur too, and have a go on the Manakamana Cable Car.

Back to Kathmandu, and staying in Bhaktipur for a week, so we can take in the complete celebrations of Bisket Jatra (Nepalese New Year)...

Then down to Chitwan for 3 or 4 nights. Nothing boked yet, and I think I'll get better vfm by just turning up in Sauraha, and looking for accommodation and booking any tours.

Finally, back to Kathmandu for our last couple of nights.

I'll do a trip report when we get back to UK late April.
