3 nights in Kathmandu (return flights from delhi)


I am thinking of doing the golden triangle in India and also combining with Kathmandu. Maybe 5 or 6 nights in India and 3 in Kathmandu. Do you think adding Kathmandu and for only 3 nights is a good idea or would it be too rushed? Was thinking of doing the Mountain flight also so I understand March - May is the best time of year to do this?

Im planning on doing a similar trip, 3/4 days Dehli, 2 days Katmandu, 3 days trekking and Everest flight. I think 3 days in KTM is plenty for the main sights and more, plan what you want to do and any day trip.

JonH & JonB three days are plenty for bragging rights - KTM is not all that big - and as for Everest flight - I'd say Oct - April is good time for it

Some may say that 3 days of the pollution in KTM is enough for anyone. You can see the main sights in and around KTM in 3 days. Bhaktapur is a must. You could even stay there a night. I am not sure that 3 days does justice to Nepal. You would be missing out on trekking and also the delightful Pokhara. See - http://wikitravel.org/en/Pokhara.

It depends also depends on how much the return flight costs and how important that money is to you. I also do not think that 5 or 6 nights in India is anywhere near enough. On that basis, I would say spend your time in India and come back for a longer time in Nepal.
