Gorgeous, colorful, diverse, and cheap, Nepal is a highlight of independent travel in Asia. Check out the medieval quarters of Kathmandu or Patan, circumambulate the enormous Boudhanath stupa, or trek to Everest Base Camp. Few countries on earth are more blessed with stunning natural beauty than Nepal, even if it's also firmly on the tourist trail.

Gorgeous mountains. Kind people. Spectacular food. Nepal has something for everyone -- only downside is that too many people now know this and the number of tourists can sometimes be stifling. A spectacular country. Find your own path and Nepal will reward.

Nepal is has a rustic old world charm to it! The main tourist city of Thamel has narrow lanes littered with shops selling garments, artifacts, mementos.
Thamel also has amazing night spots like the 'Funky Buddha' and 'Electric Pagoda' which are just magical!
Electric pagoda was my favorite-You can order a few drinks and smoke a 'J' while listening to some soothing electronic music all while taking in the graffiti and mood lighting of the place.
Then there are activities such as rafting on a winding river with scenic mountains on both sides.
If you are a electronic music enthusiast then you can visit nepal for 2 festivals 'Mountain Madness' and "Shanti Yatra'!
I was there for Shanti and it was just magical on top of a mountain with a 360 degree view and the snow capped Himalayas in the distance.
Nepal is cheap-food, alcohol and accommodation.
Stay in Thamel and travel from there to various locations!

Nepal is one of the most magical places in the world!
The best time weather wise is generally considered to be October/November after the monsoon has ended, although that is also the high season when the most tourists are there. I like February, when the weather is still nice but not so many people are there.
The time to avoid is mid-June to October, when it is monsoon, as not only does it rain every day, but the Himalayas are shrouded in clouds so you miss the views.
