I will travel to Nepal next month (Sept. 21 - 29) from China. I would like you to share your recommandations on
- itinerary (we are not that into hiking and I know we are rather short on time for it)
- best way to travel around the country
Thank u very much!
In a week you could cover Chitwan National Park, Pokhara and Kathmandu, with some day trips from Kathmandu to surrounding towns. I did an organised tour so I'm not sure about getting around, but I know buses don't have a good reputation out there! I'd definitely recommend getting up early in Pokhara to see the sunrise in Sarangkot.
If you are not hiking than Chitwan, pokhara and Kathmandu will be better and relaxed.
Jungle safari, sunrise, boating and UNESCO world heritage sites will be a good compact for you.
