  1. Hello Josemanuel! I would just like to know how many days would you recommend for Nepal? Did you try the basecamp? Thanks!

    • sadly I only had 5/6 days in Nepal so I opt to spend it in town to get a taste of culture, food, and the local feel. I like seeing how locals start up and end their days, especially in the markets and temples. If you have longer time, say 3 weeks, then i would reco Pokhara and maybe the base camp as well. I look forward on doing that when I visit Nepal again. in time =)
