Having a DSLR has its own advantages

Yet would be uncomfortable to wear while hiking in mountains, and also prone to stealing while in a lodge as they look expensive and cannot be hidden, thus you have to watch over them all the time

But if you simply must have a compact, either a Panasonic LX5 or LX7

I wholeheartedly agree, they have the 24mm which is great for the vistas and temples in nepal, the aspect switch is amazing for framing differently, i use it constantly

The lx7 will have a stop better light and manual aperture setting, which is nice, plus making panoramas and some kind of hdr, works well up to iso 800 (at f1.4 thats good!)
