We spent one short week in Nepal! It’s definitely on my list of places that I could visit again. The people were nice, the scenery was beautiful and there was plenty to do and see.
We spent the first two days in Nagarkot, just east of Kathmandu, in the mountains. Then we went on a 3-day trek through the Kathmandu Valley, from Nagarkot to Chisapani and then back down to Kathmandu. Fortunately, our guide Bik, was really cool.
After the trek we spent two days in Thamel, an area in Kathmandu. I was surprised at how modern and nice most of the places were, especially compared to India. There were a lot of good restaurants, bars and shopping. I usually like getting away from the cities while traveling, but I definitely liked Thamel.
Sadly, this is the only view we ever got of the Himalayas from the plane. It was too foggy the whole time we were there.
