- This trip involves travel on public transport, covering long distances and consequently some long days of travel. Long-distance and overnight trains can often be delayed and occasionally cancelled due to heavy fog between December and February. Some patience will go a long way towards your enjoyment here. Sit back, relax, watch the scenery go by – a book or podcast doesn’t go astray.
- We do our best to estimate travel times, but these can often change. That's just how it is in these parts and as a result, there's not as much free or independent time as on some other trips.
- Nepal and north India can get surprisingly cold in winter, please pack accordingly so you aren't caught out! Speaking of the weather, it also has the potential to be very hot, depending on the season. Please make sure you check seasonal weather guides and pick a travel time that suits your comfort level.

How much will a trip to Nepal cost?
How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.
On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants.
Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

How many days do you need in Nepal?
The duration of your Nepal trip is determined by the activities you wish to engage in. For instance, if you plan to go on a hiking trip to the Langtang Valley or Pikey Peak, settling for a seven-day jaunt is enough. But if you are interested in trekking to Everest Base Camp, you will need around two weeks. Likewise, there are other treks available in Nepal, like the Manaslu Circuit trek, that can last as long as three weeks.
Besides the popular treks, including a few days of safari, some cultural sightseeing trips or a yoga retreat to your itinerary will easily bring your Nepal vacation to 3 weeks or more. For more information check out our guide on how many days to spend in Nepal.
