Hi,

My BF and I are planning a trip to Nepal in late march /april 2013. we would like some trekking in the himilayas and then possibly somewhere hot for R&R afterwards. i'm not so sure what the minimum time we would need to allow for trekking would involve, which would then determine the time for other activities or R&R. ideally, i think a week of trekking might be enough for us so allowing travel time there, aclimatisation, a trekking trip and then.... maybe to Goa enroute back home for a few days?? Or anywhere else that might be nice to kick back and preferably nice and hot after the cold mountains??

I spent a couple of weeks in N India before but never got to warmer pastures, then the North was very cold!

Any advice very welcome, thanks.

PS Am abit out of touch - how stable are things in Nepal these days???

As march /april is good time to trek in mountains. As you mentioned that you have one week time for trek. Ghorepani-poonhill trek will be best. But If you love to do more adventure or learn the local culture 'Tamang heritage Trial' , or 'langtang' may also suite you.
for R&R pokhara and chitwan may be the best place that i would suggest.

Hey, I am thinking that one of you knowledable people may be able to answer my question.

I am visting Nepal in Dec / Jan this year and have been looking at travel insurance. Basically the company I normally go with does cover trekking and they do not specify a maximum altitude (provided no specialist ropes are used) but what they do not cover is mountain or helicopter rescue. We are planning to do trek of around 8 - 10 days duration but am not sure of which one as yet.

What I would like to know is whether trekking companies in Nepal can arrange for the mountain resuce / helicopter rescue portion of travel insurance locally once you arrive , or alternatively can anyone recommend a good company (in Australia) for insurance which offers this level of cover.

Thanks guys!
Alex.

We travelled through Nepal and India (and Pakistan) in 2010/2011. Nepal was perfectly calm and seems to be settled now. With three weeks, are you planning to travel overland (buses and trains) or by air? We had six weeks - five hectic weeks of bus and train travel and sightseeing and a week at Palolem, Goa on the beach relaxing. Since you're already seen India, have you visited Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Mumbai? We went to all of them on the way to Goa and had a great time in each - a selection on the way down might be the way to go. Enjoy your travel!

Well you will doing trekking in Nepal 8 - 10 days and in my opinion it won't be need mountain rescue / helicopter rescue insurerence even though if you want this kind of insurance than trekking companies in Nepal can arrange this thing so you don't worry about it.
