Seeking suggestions for our Nepal time in November. Do we need masks?

Jump to last reply

Thanks in large part to Kathie's recommendation, we are spending 5 1/2 days in Kathmandu in November. I have read guidebooks and Kathie's trip report and am beginning to think through which of the many choices we will do. All suggestions welcome; I'm including where we will be when as a guide.
Lonely Planet suggests a mask if you are going to be in Kathmandu more than 2 days and will be trekking. I find the idea unappealing, but would prefer to look stupid than to be stupid. What do you all think? We tend to like days that are full, but also that allow down time to be and rest. Our jet lag is bad some trips, hardly noticeable others. We are flying business (miles) SFO-Seoul-BKK-KTM.

Monday, Nov 2: arrive KTM about 1 pm. Dwarika's Hotel
Tuesday, Nov 3. Dwarika's
Wednesday Nov 4 Dwarika's
Thursday Nov 5 Dwarika's
Fri Nov 6 Dwarika's Resort DHULIKHEL
Sat Nov 7 Hyatt KTM
Sun Nov 8 early flight to Paro, Bhutan

Definites: Everest Mountain flight, seeing Himalayas at dawn at Dhulikhel. Garden in Thamel
To Choose From: All the rest. Interested in World Heritage Sites, one off-the-beaten track experience. I am a bit crowd phobic, but will take DH, valium, and a willing spirit to sooth me and urge me on.

Thanks.
