Hi, excited about planning travel intinerary September 24 to October 14. I love Nepal, worked there for a year and fell in love with the place. Looking for someone that would be interested in sharing travel with me. My plans are 3 days Kathmandu, 3 days pokhara, 3/4 annurpuna, 3 days Tansen, 4 days Bardia National park. If any parts fit it would be great to do it with a easy going companion, helpful to share guide/travel costs. Particularly interested in anyone that would like to share guide for…
Just wondering is there any need to pre-book flights in Nepal. I am travelling in November on a tight time line and will need to take a return flight to Chitwan, but use the "super deluxe" bus to Pokhara.
Do the flights get more expensive closer to the date or are they always around the same price (usally 90-100 US)?
I am an extreme Temple Trotter and slow traveler. I spent a month in Nepal back in 1987 and loved it, especially the architecture. But, I have not been back since then. I am considering an 8 week trip there next February/March. My main interest is in temple/historic architecture and I will not be trekking any more than day trips this time. I plan to spend a couple weeks in Pokhara and around Jomsom and maybe 5 days to a week in the Terai area where little if anything was damaged. I just do not…
I am spending 2 weeks in Nepal in November. I spent 3 months in Nepal several years ago and am doing it all over again because I loved it.
I have a very strict time line. I am wondering if I am guaranteed to be able to trek (with guide) the day after landing in Pokhara. I'd rather not book any treks online in advance but can't afford to potentially have to wait a day or so before a trek is available.
Hello there :) namaste
I just heard that one must pay taxes when exiting the Kathmandu airport. Is that so? Or is this something already included in the ticket?
Otherwise,how much is it? Where can I pay it and in which currency?
Thanks for the help!
Hi, Im arriving at Katmandu, and have 8 days before getting on a plane from Katmandu to India (Varanasi). What itinerary do you recommend? Id love to see Katmandu and some annapurna o other place you recommend within that time range. Thanks a lot.
Thanks to all who have helped me before my trekking to this region last month. Here is the itinerary I used and some points below. Hope this will help.
Day 1: Kathmandu to Sayabru bensi by AC Delux tourist bus (700NPR, AC= air cooled through window :p)
Day 2. Sayabru bensi to Bamboo (our plan was to reach SherpaGoan by high route, but found low river side route open , but couldn't manage due to long stretch of trail full of lose stones and was too tired as doing trek after some time)
