10 Days in Nepal

10 days in Nepal can be spent exploring its majestic mountains on one of the shorter treks like Mardi Himal, Poon Hill or Langtang Valley, and then heading down to its low-lands where there are numerous national parks.

Take a jeep safari adventure in Chitwan to try and see tigers, or go to Bardia instead. Go to the Legendary trek in Everest region.

A week-long journey to Annapurna Base Camp is an alternative. Take a relaxing boat trip in Pokhara or discover the streets of Kathmandu for plenty of historic temples and bargain finds.

Nepal in April

Is 10 days in Nepal enough?

10 days is hardly a long period of time. However, there is enough time to get a feel of the country, visit Kathmandu, see the mountains, meet people, and learn about the culture.

How long should you spend in Nepal? 

Plan three weeks to see the best of Nepal; this will allow you to complete a serious trek, such as the remote and under-visited trekking areas or the Nar Phu Valley to Everest Base Camp trek, while still having time to enjoy culture, jungle, and other adventure activities like rafting, paragliding, and many others.

How many days should you spend in Kathmandu?

Three days is a sufficient amount of time to take a city tour of Kathmandu’s most famous sights, as well as day trips to other historic sites just outside the city. If you plan ahead of time, you may be able to fit both city tours and day trips into just two days.

How long does it take to get from Kathmandu to Pokhara by bus?

The bus ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara takes about 7 hours and covers nearly 200 kms.
