@AmyC it sounds a wonderful plan; wish I could help but it’s forty years since I was there so while I think they are still there, Yak & Yeti Hotel in Kathmandu and Tiger Tops at Chitwan have probably changed since then. We also did a nine day trek ending in Pokhara which was magical; much better than the more popular treks. As @BJ says, the country is a truly great travel experience.

Re weather, I can remember being at KTM airport waiting for our (on time) flight while lots of Americans were complaining to staff about various delayed flights to the Everest base camp saying that it was incompetence, US airlines would fly with those clouds etc. The guy told them that maybe that was the case but in his country clouds have mountains in them which did shut them up.

As @BJ says, they told us earlier flights are often more weather/cloud affected.
