3 friends and I are planning a 8D 7N trip to Nepal from 2nd to 10.We need all recommendations on where to stay and what to see.
Nepal has a Lot to offer and to suggest an itinerary without know what your own particular interest are is difficult
But to give you an idea
The First thing that I would Strongly “Advise” is to get back to Kathmandu at Least 24 hours before your international flight departs as delays on the roads / internal flights are very common in Nepal and you wouldn’t want to miss your flight home
Arrive Kathmandu and settle into your chosen hotel – Depending on what time your flight arrives then maybe a little sightseeing at Durbar Square or Swayambhunath.
Start off on your first full day with a Tourist bus from Kathmandu to the put in point on the Trisuli River and ½ days scenic rafting
From there onto Chitwan for a 2 night package (Usually a package that includes transportation from either Kathmandu or Pokhara by Tourist Bus and Includes accommodation with Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner as well as All your activities (National Park Entrance fee, Elephant Ride, Dug Out Canoe Trip, Jungle Walk, Cultural Show, Bird watching / Village Walk etc) start at $30 per person per day.
My Own favourite for Sauraha is Tiger Residency This is a little more expensive but the accommodation and the food is well above average and the guide, Laxman is simply superb, he can recognise all the birds by sight, silhouette and bird call and knows their names in English, Latin and Nepali
I have steered quite a few people to Tiger Residency over the years and have had a lot of Good feedback !!
Day 3 – Tourist bus or private car to Pokhara afternoon sightseeing and overnight
Day 4 – Morning Paragliding and maybe a boat over Fewa Tal and walk to the World Peace Pagoda in the afternoon
Day 5 Maybe a sunrise at Sarangkot and afternoon flight back to Kathmandu
Day 6 Full days sightseeing around Kathmandu and the valley
Day 7 – Last Minute sightseeing, shopping and flight home

Good Luck and Happy Safe Travels
