'm heading to Nepal in March for 7 nights, not long enough to bite off a large/circuitous trek like many plan for in Nepal. One person recommended spending 2-3 days in the Kathmandu Valley and then flying to Pokhara and exploring a bit. Someone else recommend flying to Lukla to experience the flight and then spending a night or two. What alternative plans might you suggest if you're a solo traveler and have a week to spend in Nepal?
What about trekking as a solo female? I will be heading to Nepal on my own this spring, and will hopefully pick up some hiking buddies in Kathmandu on the way--but if I happen not to meet anyone interested in the same trek, is it safe for a girl to do a trek on her own, or with a porter/guide? If not, would a trekking company or group be a good option for a young, fairly budget conscious backpacker?
If you're doing one of the popular treks, it's perfectly safe, since you are virtually guaranteed to meet other solo trekkers--most likely you'll have a little group by the time you get off the bus.
I definitely agree! Thanks for the website. What trek did you do, just out of curiosity?
