  • Kathmandu

    Nepal Favorites

    I just read a review that nepali people are cheap and that they are cheaters. I am nepali and I have gone on many treks such as ghandruk, jomsom, khumbu etc. Those regions as well as my hometown Kathmandu are filled with different kinds of people just like any other place in the world. Maybe that person had a bad experience with a certain person...

  • Pokhara

    Nepal Favorites

    August in Pokhara will be a tropical experience, hot, muggy, mosquitos and leeches in the brush and grass country. However, it is a good time to visit the rainshadow areas of Nepal, such as behind the Annapurnas near Pokhara; a short flight will take you to Humde in Manang or Jomsom in Mustang. Should be ok weather back there. Kathmandu's climate...

    Dakshin Kali Temple is definitely a must-see but non-Hindus are not allowed to enter in to the compound where the image of Kali is actually located. Dakshinkali is regarded as one of most important Hindu goddesses. Pilgrims visits this temple to offer their prayer and animal sacrifices to the goddess. Here, the animal are sacrificed such as goat,...

  • Bhaktapur

    Nepal Favorites

    Sightseeing is a must. The temples Hindus or buddhist are magnificent. Visit Bhaktapur, a small village and I quote E.A. Powell 'Were there nothing else in Nepal, save the Durbar Square of Bhaktapur, it would still be amply worth making a journey halfway round the globe to see' People were so friendly and beautiful.

  • Bodnath

    Nepal Favorites

    The best thing with visiting Nepal was getting close to the Nepalese religious life. Nepal is the only official hindu state in the world, yet, the country is very tolerant. Most people, when asked if they are hindu or buddhist, will reply 'both' or just look at you. It is forbidden by law to try to change somebody's religion, you can convert if you...

  • Patan

    Nepal Favorites

    A short trip from Kathmandu, only 5km (3mi) from Thamel in Kathmandu to Patan; you can get there by bicyle, taxi, bus... Patan, the second-largest city in the valley, is a much quieter and less frenetic place to visit. The center of the city is the stunning Durbar Square (see Photo). It includes the Royal Palace, which contains a richly decorated...

  • A wonderful trip to Nepal

    My favorite thing about Nepal is probably the people, so helpful and nice every single time we ask someone for something. The view of the Phewa Lake from the World Peace Pagoda and waking up in Gandruk and saw Fishtail mountain just in front of us.

  • Kathmandu or Pokhara first...

    Starting in Sanuali, it Makes sense to travel to Kathmandu first then to Pokhara then onto Nainital in India, at least you will be heading west all the time after leaving Kathmandu. It's easier to go to Chitwan N.P. on the way to Kathmandu or use Kathmandu as a base for a trip to Chitwan N.P. that's what most people do.

    Travelling on a budget I would surf the net to get an idea of my options, and realistically mapping my days and places I'd like to visit.

Some costs are more or less fixed, like bungee jump, paragliding, mountain flight, flights etc, but all...

    Maybe it's nothing new for most of you, but two different price lists in restaurants, for foreigners and for Nepali people, are the common practice in Nepal.

You have to start from Pokhara for Annapurna...
