Things to do
Taking the Gokyo & the Imja Tse Valley route to Everest Base camp - Take the road less travelled to the popular Everest Base Camp. Glacial lakes, small hamlets and stunning scenery dominates this route. The peaks of Cho Oyu (8153m) and Gyachung Kang (7922m) are the other attractions on this trail.
Village walk in Sailung Village - With excellent walking, spectacular panoramas and wonderful hospitality in secluded villages, travel with a local guide to experience authentic village life in Nepal, away from the usual tourist routes. This community-based eco-tourism initiative allows visitors to trek through beautiful villages and pristine natural landscape.
Tiger Safari in Chitwan - One of the very few places in Asia where you can go on a safari on foot to track the elusive big cat. You can also take a safari in a jeep, or cruise rivers in canoes and can even head out after dark for a feel of the jungle with an expert naturalist and guide.
Best time to visit March to May & October and November
After the rains (with the monsoon between June and early September), October and November are probably the best times to visit. With good visibility and perfect weather conditions, trekking now is easier.
Winters could get harsh in the northern part of Nepal from November to Spring, between March and May, is a good time to visit with cool temperatures some showers throughout the country.
How to reach
Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, is the main connecting international airport in Nepal.
The rest of the country is fairly well connected by domestic flights, but weather plays an important part in whether your flight takes off at the right time.
Regular buses also connect most towns, but premium buses only run between Kathmandu and Pokhara with the route to Chitwan opening up in peak season.
Taxis are the easiest form of getting around the city; however, as with most southeast Asian countries, it would make sense to agree on the fare before you get in.
