Keep the information and pictures coming.

I love India and surrounding areas along with the honesty and morality of the people in the area.

Ya it is great there because of the people are really friendly and speak English. I been to India and Nepal many many time never been robbed for example. Some people will cheat you, etc. But at least you can leave your thing in the guesthouse and they will still be there when you come back.
It is sort of like going back in time 30 years, cities like Mumbai, Calcutta, Delhi and Kathmandu. Things move on much slower pace. Have a nice nepali fish diner and enjoy some entertainment by the lake,


Sept to December is a good time to visits either India or Nepal, also great for trekking in Manali, Ladak or Annapuranas.

I had a friend from India that talked about it occasionally. To hear him tell it he hated it and it was awful, but it still seemed great to me.

I'm going to Nepal in February, so I may pick your brain a bit closer to when I take off!

February is a cold month, probably the coldest. You will need serious cold weather gear if you are going trekking, you can get in Kathmandu or pokhara. Not for the faith of heart, trekking teahouses are not heated much. Up side is few tourists. October is considered the best month, then November, December, May, June. Teahouses can be filled to the brim with groups in October, sleep on the dinning room table.
