no matter where you go and stay in Nepal it will be a magical experience. However, since it's your first time, I'd suggest staying in Bhaktapur rather than Kathmandu because it's less busy. Trekking is the main reason to go to Nepal as trekking there is second to none. Do use a local Nepal government licensed company to avoid any issues or go with a reputable local guide. you can find out this by inquiring around...
what's your budget btw?
rafting, trekking in Nepal
dont miss visiting the International Mountain Museum, near the Himalaya Eye Hospital, in Pokhara. it's a great place to learn all about the mountains of Nepal and climbing gear used by early mountaineers. Aside form trekking, you should also do a bit of white-water rafting on the Trisuli river. it's three hours from Kathmandu but if you can easily organize rafting trips from the capital to pick you up and take you to the Trisuli river.
using money in Nepal
My tips is to limit the use of ATM's as much as possible in Kathmandu. If you can't it's best you withdraw as much as you'll need for the trip. That way, you avoid steep exchange rates fees. By the way, you are also only allowed five ATM withdraws per day. Either way, be sure to have a back up in travelers cheques just as a precaution.
As for the trekking trips, you can book them a few days ahead, and you can find trekking partners by asking around and checking message boards at the guesthouses.
This is right time to visit Nepal. Especially if you prefer to go for trekking at Mountain region then this time is perfect beside this region there more places to visit. I personally suggest you to start your journey from Kathmandu because the international airport is situated at capital city of Nepal that is Kathmandu so it ll be easy for you to visit other places.. Do not worry about accommodation we ll help you once you are here..Finally itâ€™s up to you. Good luck!!
If you can try to visit the Mt. Everest base camp. It's great to see Mt Everest up close (without actually climbing it).
