    Nice. I’d always thought of Nepal as one of those longish backpacker places. This is giving me ideas!

      Nepal is moving up in the worlds. Yes there are backpackers, but also many trekkers and culture enthusiasts.

    Love your Nepal coverage here. I’ll send this to a friend working in Singapore. They’ve been looking for something outside Sea for a while

      I don’t think there are direct flights from Singapore to Nepal yet. But I know Jet airways go Singapore – Delhi – Kathmandu with reasonably prices flights. Web specials are often half price! Hope that helps..

    This is such a helpful post, I was in Nepal recently and something like this would have really come in handy before I left. I still had an amazing time though.

    Great planning advice here. We were hoping to make Chitwan ourselves with only 10 days but got side tracked by extra days in Pokhara!

      No harm in extra days in Pokhara … a great place to spend 10 days. Hope you had nice time there!

    Love the post. If I may add to it – I did the trek to Annapurna Base Camp via Poon Hill in March 2013. I totally agree that Poon Hill is an appropriate short trek when time is limited. Be warned though, if you go for a short trip you will want to go back for more!

    I must admit I was a little bit skeptical when first reading your title but it seems to me that 7 days are not enough at all to visit the amazing Nepal. But I guess if your really take the time to plan your trip right and know exactly what you can see and what you want to see, 7 days can be enough. I’m thinking about going to Nepal next year with a group of friends and I think your article is a “must read” for us because we would only have like 8-10 days for it.
