I'm contemplating taking a side trip of 4-5 days to Nepal from the UAE this fall. I might end up doing this on my own and wondered if anyone has safety advice for me. I'm an Asian Canadian in my 30's btw.
Although my time there would be limited, I'd like to see a bit of the mountains, temples and shopping/people/restos. Of course I'd be travelling on the cheap and was hoping for affordable, safe advice if anyone could lend a hand including hotels.
Lastly, although I'm an active adventurous person and seasoned traveller, I'm not the most athletically gifted. Is there an easy way to see/view the Mt Everest and/or Himalayas without paying an arm and a leg for the plane view or actually hiking it yourself?
