Your thoughts on Nepal and how long to visit

Jump to last reply

In a couple weeks we leave for a six week trip flying in and out of Delhi. When we first thought about this trip, it was intended to be only a trip to Nepal. But, we have the time available, and winter here is awful, and with all of the travel time and expense needed to get there from the US we decided to make it a six week trip. So, a second trip to India got added in too.

Now that I have had time to thoroughly research Nepal, I think I have come to the conclusion that for the non-trekker two weeks might be max. We're in our sixties so not looking for the laid back party scene. We always tend to take more off-the-beaten-path and non-traditional trips than many of you here, so that needs to be factored in. I think we may do a four day trek and we may also do a three day rafting trip. Other than that it would be the usual things in the Kathmandu Valley plus a couple days at some more out of the way places. This still all adds up to only about two and a half weeks. That means three and a half weeks for India.

Or, do you recommend that I spend more time in Nepal than this? Are there any lesser-known places you visited (not via a long, arduous trek) that you'd recommend? We have the budget to hire a car and driver and don't need to solely rely on public transportation. We've visited India before for six weeks and will return again in the future, whereas this will be our only trip to Nepal. Thanks in advance for the advice.
