Defintely visit Bandipur. No cars, no motor bikes, no hassle, and it really is a living museum.

We had 3 nights there earlier this month.

We left all our gear at our guesthouse in Pokhara, and caught a public bus from the Pokhara main bus park. Get a Kathmandu bound bus, and ask to be dropped off on the Prithvi Highway at Dumre. Buy your ticket on the bus, and it should cost 200 NPR.

At Dumre get a bus (opposite where you've just been dropped off) up the hill to Bandipur (50 NPR), alternatively someone will offer you a lift up the hill for 400 NPR. We did the latter as the bus at Dumre was absolutely full.

If you haven't pre-booked accommodation there is a small tourist office along the main road in Bandipur (there's only one road). The lads in the office are very helpful. Tell them your budget and they'll try and sort you out. We stayed at the inappropriately named Bandipur Palace Hotel! But it was alright, and a double with bathroom cost 1500 NPR a night.

We visited Bhaktapur for the Neapalese New Year (Bisket Jatra). Bhaktapur should be a lovely living museum too, but it's completely spoiled by a continual stream of motor bikes aimlessly driving through the narrow streets beeping their horns all their time. It costs 1500 NPR for a ticket to get into Bhaktapur. We got a taxi there having just arrived in KTM from Pokhara. Opening price for the taxi was 1400 NPR, but I knocked it down to 800 NPR.

If you stay in Boudha then be careful of beggars, especially the Baby Milk scam. If any kids bother you anywhere (and they will) just keep your sense of humour and say to them firmly, but gently "Hoina holaa!" which means I don't think so.

Hello,
Only one week is not sufficient for you to explore over Nepal. You need about 3 weeks to visit important and beautiful places in Nepal. So my suggestion is that you stay in Kathmandu valley. You can go for Heritage tour in about 10 days.It is better if you go for site -seeing in Kathmandu Dubar Square, Bouddhanath, Pashupatinath, Swayambunath, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Squrae, etc.You can go one day trek to Nagarkot.

You could also go to Chitwan National Park for Elephant Safari and it will take 4 -5 days in total .You can also, enjoy Rafting/Canyoning at Trishuli River, Bhotekoshi, Sundarijaal,etc.You can go for trekking in Annapurna Base Camp,Everest Base Camp,Langtang, Jomsom, Ghorepani,Dolpa,Ghandrun,etc. on your own choice. You would better climb mountains like :-Mt. Annapurna,Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre, Manaslu, etc. Trekking can be done with the experienced guide in Nepal.You can get trekking guides in Nepal through different Travel agencies found in Nepal.
Ok, enjoy your trip to Nepal.
