    I was in CM a couple of weeks ago - things are very quiet so you will not haveany problem finding a room.. go to the Thapae Gate area and look around... plenty plenty plenty of rooms - ask for a discount too...

    There are tons of travel agencies in CM, probably at your hotel too and they will have all kinds of brochures and tours and packages and things to do - anything from cooking classes to treks...

    you'll be fine - - I will be back there in a couple of days myself - have a good trip...
