    Our Itinerary, could have been better. Here’s what we would have done differently:

    1. Cut the trek a day short and walk from Swanta to Tatopani (gaining 1 day)

    2. Skipped Pokhara after the trek (gaining 2 days)

    3. Kept Nagarkot to 2 nights instead of 3 (gaining 1 day)

    4. With the extra 4 days, we could have gone from Tatopani to Muktinath, then fly Jomsom - Pokhara - Kathmandu
