Hi Gaelle,

Not too sure if you'll be reading this reply. Nonetheless, just wish to share.

For your information, I'll be back in Nepal this Nov too for my 2nd trek

Pokhara is very very nice...wished I can go back again but don't think so this time round as time is tight. If you have time after your teaching and meditation, you may want to do some light trekking around Annapurna region. The starting point will be from Pokhara, so it'll be very convenient. Lots of local trekking company to choose from in Pokhara.

As for other parts of Nepal, was only in Kathmandu for a couple of days previously, so can't recommend u much. Must do Boudhanath, Swyambhunath, Pashupatinath. If scenery is your cup of tea but yet do not wish to trek, can try out a 1-day trip to Nagarkot. There are coach services that you can engage to drive you to the doorstep.

You'll definitely enjoy your stay in Nepal, as much as how I enjoyed mine. ;)

Hi,

Many people enjoy travel to Nepal for many reasons, the beautiful mountains, the unique diverse cultures, the great food and the healing energy that exists throughout the country. Ethno-tourism is gradually popular in Nepal and it is designed to reduce economic and social benefits for the local societies.

There are many good hotels that have automatic wake-up calls, data ports, a mini bar, luggage rack, tea and coffee maker, word desk with chair, in-room safety deposit box, direct dial phone, satellite television, sprinklers and smoke detectors in the room.

Hello,

I,m going to Nepal around mid octobre probably. Now I m in India and I m going to Ladakh for a trek first. Then I m going to Nepal where I have a contact, a good guide which someone recommended me. I m also go to his village in the mountains where I can teach english.
Where is it exactly that you are going to do the meditation in Pokhara and how did you make contact with it? Can you just arrive there and stay there then?

Greetings,

Melanie

Hi Melanie,

How long are you staying in Nepal? I am planning on trekking in the anapurna the second half of November

hey!
thanks for the trekking tip - I think I will actually go trekking around the annapurna region, it makes sense as it's close and I don't have so many weeks available!
where are you going trekking and when?

Hi Gaelle,

I'll be trekking in Langtang region, 14 Nov - 29 Nov. :)

Yes you should really trek around annapurna region as it's really beautiful. 2 common treks will be the ABC trek and the much easier Poonhill trek.

Cheers. ;)
