On Dynamic range I have bought a B&W 2 stop grad filter in 52mm size for my 14-45 to help tilt things in my favour...perhaps it will be enough

If you are going in Nepal, aka in a montainous region, forget about it : you are not going to get the kind of landscapes where you'll get use of a graded nd filter. Believe me : I live in the middle of the Alps.

The landscapes where we're going will be quite diverse, the high point being a glacier along a plateau following a string of high altitude lakes (5km high). I take your point though that jagged horizons are problematic for grad filters. I have some experience of this and have got reasonable results so long as the grad isn't more than 2 stops, and of course is as Soft Grad.
