Two female friends in late thirties that would like to travel to Nepal (and maybe Tibet) in May 2022 for approximately 10 days (some flexibility to 14 if recommended) and love culture/local visits, food, and in terms of trekking, short/light treks.

Dear Mich***,

May I just recommend some itineraries in Nepal for your first?

Also in Pokhara, besides its amazing natural scenery, it's also a paradise for paragliding, rafting, mountain biking, etc. We can arrange one or two more days here if you want.
