davie has indicated that this thread is about Nepal

just returned to china from Nepal. with the current political changes in Nepal it may be difficult to get around the country. there were strikes blocking roads and shortages of gas. the 3 major tourist areas Kathmandu, pokhara and chitwan were ok but trying to get to other areas were almost impossible by ground transportation. planes did however service these areas. also monsoon rains obliterated many roads. I stayed in Nepal almost 2 months at the same lodgings, the Potala Guest House in Kathmandu (Tamel area) and the Rahraa hotel (lakeside) in pokhara both of which I recommend for friendliness and service. as things go, both are relatively clean. one should bargain for the best rates and make sure rooms have good views and are quiet. the people in Nepal are very nice and in the tourist cities most speak English. felt safe throughout my stay. Nepal is a very poor country so expect this in your travels as in the capital streets are not paved and littered with garbage. same in pokhara. in both cities you share the street with farm animals, water buffalo and goats mostly. rats are common because of the garbage. my experience was enjoyable because of the scenery and people being so friendly. enjoy you travels:boggle

Now the situations are changed one can come to Nepal easily and can visit not only Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan but also other beautiful locations like Bardia, Nagarkot, Lumbini, Annapurna Area, and many more.....And for that you people are always welcome to Nepal. Nepalese are well hearted and always helpfull to other. "Aatithi debo bhava" means visitors are like a god, that is what Nepali people think of about the visitors. And also as we are a travel agency here in nepal

Hope to see u in Nepal.
