I live in Pokhara, Nepal and I would very much recommend Nepal around the time of your birthday. If you can find time to go for a walk in the mountains in the Annapurna region during April (actually, the end of March/beginning of April is usually the best time), the rhodedendrons in flower in the foot-hills are really quite special.
Feel free to contact me before you arrive.

We are also planning to visit Nepal, Kathmandu. We plan to ride from India to Nepal in January. Is it possible, or is it to cold?

Gday USL,

Dont know if this is much help to you, my daughter works in Nepal and she has said the political unrest is growing by the day. Many strikes now are taking place as well as curfew being imposed in Kathmandu. As far as the time to travel is concerned it is very cold from November to late February - just be aware. Check with your countries Foreign Affairs department first.

Mark

Hi Mark ;

I hope everything settles down before it gets worse. I wouldnt want to change it after 8 months of planning and praying..
