We took the Gate 1 15 Day Kaleidoscope of India with Nepal and created the blog India & Nepal Tour ( to document the  day-to-day activities during the tour. I sorted through my 4,000+ photos and put about 10% in the blog. Here are some of the photos from the blog.d5d13447-10a6-4f69-8fd0-dbe58b5cec91.jpg310cd7d8-6cc9-4aa5-99ea-e23bfb1438c1.jpgd2558324-35bb-4c1f-b075-a340b7354215.jpgfc8563dd-555d-49be-9ec8-d04bc5c3af55.jpg0f470407-ae81-4c75-87ef-1243ae1ccf85.jpgfa209d76-de1f-4341-ab8a-581729c2ac1d.jpg7c1be7b7-9d90-4b1d-8906-8f7ef5f25d33.jpg5ae2d8c2-1416-47d7-a023-e00d01d12076.jpgafc8b083-e976-4cdc-99b8-91931de96372.jpg8b381361-ac06-43d3-9e6c-90a0b63e599f.jpgb8f12587-8b63-4876-a640-4b2dc0066a32.jpg4aa08c0c-d083-45cc-b52b-dbd1d95f9ea9.jpgd5d13447-10a6-4f69-8fd0-dbe58b5cec91.jpg310cd7d8-6cc9-4aa5-99ea-e23bfb1438c1.jpgd2558324-35bb-4c1f-b075-a340b7354215.jpgfc8563dd-555d-49be-9ec8-d04bc5c3af55.jpg0f470407-ae81-4c75-87ef-1243ae1ccf85.jpgfa209d76-de1f-4341-ab8a-581729c2ac1d.jpg7c1be7b7-9d90-4b1d-8906-8f7ef5f25d33.jpg5ae2d8c2-1416-47d7-a023-e00d01d12076.jpgafc8b083-e976-4cdc-99b8-91931de96372.jpg8b381361-ac06-43d3-9e6c-90a0b63e599f.jpgb8f12587-8b63-4876-a640-4b2dc0066a32.jpg4aa08c0c-d083-45cc-b52b-dbd1d95f9ea9.jpg

Love your pictures! After many friends telling me "you have to go to India" I'm very close to being convinced - perhaps for next Spring. Were you happy with the weather at the end of March? I like heat & humidity, but would like to avoid a lot of rain.

Check this out:

You will see that weather in March is almost ideal.  It is beaten out only slightly by November.  That is when we are going back this year.  Best avoid mid summer, when it is very hot AND rainy.  If I remember correctly, G 1 does not even do tours during these months.

As "littlera" (AKA Randy and Deanie) noted, November is the first choice for most people traveling to India and Nepal.

We did this tour the last two weeks of February and found the weather just right for us, but we live in the mountains of Northeast PA (it was -6F at home when we left and returned). The weather was dry every day India and it rained when we landed in Kathmandu but was dry during our stay.

It started raining while we were leaving Kathmandu and a couple of days later a plane skidded of the runway and shut down the airport for 4 days.

Thanks for the information - I guess I was looking at the dates your pictures were posted when I came up with the end of March. Either March or November would get me out of some usually nasty Michigan weather!
