Pokhara is 6 to 7 hour bus ride or 30 minute flight from Kathmandu.

Late September to late November offers the best weather, but it’s also peak season and the most expensive time to visit.

How to get to Nepal using miles and points

You can fly to Kathmandu, Nepal using miles and points.

The cheapest way to get to Kathmandu is to fly 1-way in coach using 30,000 Alaska Airlines miles.

If you don’t have any Alaska Airlines miles, 42,500 United Airlines miles or 45,000 American Airlines miles will also get you a 1-way coach ticket to Nepal.

You can fly 1-way in Business Class for 50,000 Alaska Airlines miles, 67,500 American Airlines miles, or 70,000 United Airlines miles.

A 1-way First Class award ticket costs 70,000 Alaska Airlines miles or 90,000 American Airlines or United Airlines miles.

Nepal’s been on my bucket list for a long time, I think it’s about time I check it off.  And the paragliding is right up my alley, as long as I’m strapped in and can’t fall…
