My husband and I planning to spend the year end in Kathmandu. We will arrive on December 21 2013 and departure on january 2 2014. Instead of Kathmandu, we also plan to visit Pokhara and Nagarkot. My question: 1# which place that have a good event on new year; 2# Is there any limitation on transport during the new year.

I'm in Kathmandu and just finished the EBC and Gokyo trek starting from Shivalaya in 15-16 days (earlier than expected) so now I have time to possibly do ABC also, can anyone give me any guidance on a good outline/ itinerary to complete it in 11 days?
I will arrive very late like 11PM, if I would like to go to Pokhara on the earliest next flight (which is around 7am), is there a flight ticketing office in the Kathmandu airport itself so I can book my ticket there? Do you think they are still open at around 11-ish PM?
I don't feel comfortable sending my credit card details via email, as the Yeti Air and Buddha Air don't have online booking facility. Thus, I thought of booking my flight soon as I arrive in KTM.
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
Hi, how to find an english speaking local guide in pokhara for the general business consulting purpose rather than tourism?
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.

Female travelling alone to Nepal, whats the top 10 tips?
Is it wise to travel to KTM & PKR in Dec with kids in tow? Do we need thermals if we r not trekking? Also, is it safe there? We are keen in jungle safari the most.
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?
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

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 =)
I leave for Nepal in two weeks, and am planning to do EBC and Gokyo Lakes. I was wondering whether or not it would be better to hire or buy my sleeping bag? Also I need to buy a down jacket and raincoat, is it better to buy them here in Australia or once I get to Nepal?
I own a IPhone, which is unlocked. I was wondering where I can buy a SIM card in Kathmandu, so that I can call U.S.
Plus, is it better to order the SIM card from U.S. or just get it in Kathmandu?

I am planning to be in Nepal in July 2014, for probably 2-3 weeks.
I will be going solo, and looking for travel companion(s). Recently, there are news about missing persons in India and Nepal, so i think it would be wise to have travel buddies, plus we can split the guide cost and make new friends.
I am female, 28 y.o, from Indonesia.
I am going to do some trekking there, mostly to take landscape photography.
Due to taking photo, I will probably slower than the normal trekkers will take.
Anyone interested, please contact me. :)

I know that most of you stay with locals when trekking to base camp of Mt Everest. But, what is your opinion about camping/tenting? Do you think it's a good idea? Please give me your opinion. Thank you.
I'm planning a trip in March 2014, and would like to book a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Most places want me to email them a copy of my passport and credit card information via email.
I land on March 15th at 11:45AM in Kathmandu. I want to get on the first flight on March 16th to Lukla.
Question 1: What is the best way to get a ticket to Lukla via secure way.
Question 2: How many weeks, or months ahead of time should I purchase my ticket?
