i have not been there but it's on my list. From the thread it seems 1 night/ 2 days is perfect there.

It actually seems like a good idea but I can't find any availability that works for when I have to fly back and flights are expensive.

Looking for a Zika free destination for the summer. Preferably not Europe or beach/island.
Thinking of Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan... 

Don't want to spend 2 days traveling so the closer the better. I'm thinking maybe to make an intentional stopover for a day or 2 but can't figure out a good destination.

Your post is confusing...

Trying to find a place to go this summer that is Zika free.
I would love to do Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, maybe some parts of China etc but the thought of traveling for 20 hours straight is daunting for me and probably too hard a sell.
Therefore, I'm wondering if I can combine 2 locations, stopping off at location 1 for a day or 2 to break up the travel time.

I can't think of any good combinations that work geographically and don't break the bank.

That might work, thanks. (though I'd skip Tibet due to time constraints)

Tibet is beautiful if you can make it, see my trip report:

Is Nepal worth the travel if you're not doing a trek of some sort?
