Solo travel experience

I spent 3 months in Nepal as a start of a bigger solo trip. It was not my first solo trip and not my first "developing" destination, but it was still a bit of a culture shock. Nature is beautiful beyond words and I would always recommend a trek (according to the physical level and time constraints). But even without one, there's plenty to see. It is a very safe country for solo female travelers and people are, generally speaking, very friendly. The biggest nuisance for me was the constant hassle from people trying to sell me something - trinkets, taxi, or guide service. On top, even genuine contacts with locals ended up with a request for money in 90% of the cases.

Solo travel experience

I just came back from a solo trip to Nepal: Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, Sauraha / Chitwan National Park, Lumbini, Pokhara, Gurung villages, Bandipur and Ramkot. I just loved it. I hired local guides sometimes, sometimes joined a group of other solo travellers but it was fine to go around by myself, too.

Solo travel experience

Was twice in Nepal, first time with a G Adventures with a wide range from exploring Kathmandu Valley to a 3 day trek in the Annapurna region and finally Chitwan. The second time I hiked the Annapurna circuit individually. Both were great experiences.
