Anyone contemplating the above should be aware that the Nepal / India Border will close at midnight tonight and not reopen until after the elections
Good Luck Rob
Just curious. Do I need to get a hiking permit from my country (Malaysia) or do I get it in Nepal itself in order to hike up to the Annapurna Circuit? And what is the procedure like along with the fee?
Hi dear, I am so glad to read about your travelogue on Nepal. I am going for a winter trekking in Poon Hill in mid-Jan 2014. As a Malaysian, I kind of worry of the weather and the snow fall conditions. Tried to survey on it and found yours best answered my question. Though I still have some questions on the equipments to pack. Do you think I must get a down jacket instead of fleece jacket while trekking? Averagely, how many inches of snow will there be in Jan? I read about a need of waterproof shoes but I wonder what is the minumum height of the winter boot should I get? Thanks =)
We are planning on going to Nepal and staying around Kathmandu for about a week.I was wondering where we could get a good view of the highest (snow capped) mountains with in a couple of hours drive from Kathmandu?
We are staying 7 nights in Kathmandu of which we are going 4 of the days sightseeing in Kathmandu and surroundings .We are free for 2 full days to do what we want to do.

2 nights in Pokhara
2 nights in Lumbini
2 nights in Royal Chitwan National Park
We are thinking of coming to Nepal for the first time in begin April 2014.
I was wondering if the weather is good then?
we would we starting in Kathmandu,,Bhaktapur ,Valley of Kathmandu,Terai, Lumbini,,Tansen ,Pokhara.and back to Kathmandu.this is a 11 day trip.
They also have a 9 day trip but the without Tansen.and Lumbini,.
With trip is advisable?
Is also have a question about taking pictures? Can you take pictures of people in Nepal? Or are there certain laws about taking pictures?
Are people very annoying to sell you things in Nepal?( not that we are not going to things) but in Sri Lanka everyone wanted us to buy from everyone.I found that very annoying.
Any one on during this time...
My husband and I have decided to spend fifteen days or so in Nepal backpacking in early spring. The top three things we want to hit are: the Annapurna sanctuary trek, riding an elephant in Chitwan, and taking a flight around Everest. Any suggestions/itenerary ideas/other Nepal travel tips to make this all possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't even know where to begin planning. Right now, we are set to arrive in Kathmandu and then maybe take the bus or a flight to Pokhara. Thank you.
I am planning to take my family, 8 persons 18 - 56 years to Mustang in April next year. Our preference is trekking/culture 50/50. I would like some good advise from people who has been there. 2 things in perticular:
1. What is the weather like in April? - planned arrival around the 10th.
2. Advise on good and trustworthy local travel agents who can arrange the trip. Preferably from Katmandu i.e including the domistic flight.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
