Travelling around Nepal is incredibly cheap to do, you will be lucky to spend 5 dollars a day, and that includes a trek up the mountains! However, the higher up you go the food and drink do get more expensive. The restaurants and cafes are very reasonable to eat out in. So on a day to day basis, you can quite easily survive on 8 to 10 dollars a day. Woo hoo, more to spend on shopping maybe! The local guides are so knowledgeable and reasonably cheap !
The climate is arid and dusty so be aware of this and wear a mask for a few days until your system is used to it otherwise you will find your respiratory system will go down fast! There are power cuts most days and for various degrees of time! So beware no internet, but most importantly only eat at the larger restaurants as they have backup generators, so their meats, etc. will be fine, unlike the smaller cafes whose meat will be without refrigeration!
When is the best time to go to Kathmandu depends on what you want to do while visiting. Probably the worst time to visit would be between June and September when the monsoon rain is at full peak ! if you fancy a trek up the mountains we would suggest from October to November as the days are sunny and warm and more importantly, dry! If you would like cooler days to trek the spring weather between March and late April is the best time for this.
