    Is it possible to do directly to Nagarkot from Bhaktapur by taxi?

      Yes it is. They charge between 600 to 800 rupees. Remember to bargain. For the bus it’s 45-50 rupees.

    Which is better. One long trek or two shorter ones?

      It depends on you! If you are not sure you can make a long trek, then try the two shorter ones.

    This is very handy thanks Dave. Just planning out our own itinerary here on three weeks. I think we’ll do the Annapurna Circuit and get to see some of the cities too.

      You’re welcome. The APC will have to be the short version though!

    I never thought it would be possible to do a trek and visit places in only two weeks. Just a great resource thanks. We’ll be adding Nepal to our list now.

    Can we rent a car to speed things up between cities?

      If you rent a car it will come with a driver. It’s basically like renting a taxi for the day or two. There’s not a huge difference in time between just grabbing a local taxi and or hiring one for a day or two. A taxi will be cheaper than hiring for a day or two.

    Should we book a hotel in advance during peak season?

    • Dave from The Longest Way Home

      There’s no shortage of accommodation in Nepal at anytime of year. However if you have a prefered hotel then yes, booking in advance can help secure a room there.

    Fantastic resources here, thanks. Is traffic an issue getting between the cities? Re delays

      Thanks. Yes, rush hour in Kathmandu can be a problem. Between 8-10am and 5-7pm. Boudhanath, Patan have a lot of traffic between them. Bhaktapur not so much. It’s not gridlock, but it can delay things by up to 30mins.

    Such a great list of things to do in Nepal. Are there still many flight delays? I remember it used to be a huge problem.

    • Dave from The Longest Way Home

      Yes, there can still be flight delays. Particularly late night flights coming in from India!

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the incredible wealth of information you’ve provided here. I was wondering if you have any idea as to how the current political unrest is affecting the tourist spots in Nepal? My friend and I have been planning a two week trip starting Oct. 4, mainly focusing on Kathmandu (and environs), Pokhara, and trekking. The news coming out of Nepal during the past week has made us worried that we won’t be able to move around the country. Any info you could pass along would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi Andi

      Today is constitution day here in Nepal. After 8 years of making it’s finally here. While it’s meant to bring stability there are several strikes already arranged. However, tourist buses and private cars are not affected. So traveling around the Kathmandu Valley and to Pokhara for trekking should not be a problem for you.

      I’m here now and will send this reply to you in an email too. Feel free to email me if you have any concerns.
