Prelude to Nepal Dream

Categories Others
Swayambhunath Stupa, Kathmandu, Nepal

The jumbo jet taxied on the runway of Ninoy Aquino International Airport and took off past seven in the evening en route to Bangkok, Thailand then onwards to New Delhi, India. I am aboard a fully occupied flight of mixed nationalities going out of the Philippines for the Holy Week break.

As the plane went airborne, I had a sigh of relief. At last, after all the uncertainties, my Nepal dream will finally become real.

I am now writing this note at 30,000 feet for another milestone. This is it! I will finally have a glimpse of the Himalayas, visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites Durbar Squares, see lots of temples and stupas, and bungy jump in Bhote Kosi River.

The road to this dream is not a paved one. There were bumps and humps along the way that I almost gave up. But here I am, and I want to thank everyone who helped and supported me. You know who you all are, thank you very much!

I can now smell the inflight meals and the aroma is making me crave for it. It will take hours, perhaps a day, and more challenges before I reach my final destination. I am afraid but excited. That’s it for now, see you after a week, I guess.

Kathmandu, here I come!

  1. Hello Angel,

    Greetings!

    I just want to ask regarding India and Nepal. Does India (New Delhi) accept Visa on Arrival already. I learned Nepal does. My question is like this.

    If you pass by India in going to Nepal , then returning back thru India, do you need another Indian Visa?

    What cheap airlines can you recommend from Phil to Delhi and Delhi to Kathmandu?

    Thanks

    Jay

    1. Hi Jay,

      Yes, India offers Visa on Arrival (VOA) for Filipinos. If you pass by India going to Nepal and return back to India, you will be needing another Indian visa so it will be better to apply a double entry visa here in Manila because the India VOA requires two months gap before you can avail again of another VOA.

      There is no budget airline that flies directly to Delhi from Manila, only PAL via Bangkok. What others do is go to Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok, then to India via Air Asia. From Delhi to Kathmandu, budget airline Indigo Air offers really great deal.

      :))

  2. enjoy! i’m hoping that you’ll have a recommended itinerary/highlights of nepal post. it’s also one of my dream destinations and i’m sure that with your guidance, i can make it happen without breaking my bank. 🙂
