Travel Tips

  • The form of greeting in Nepal is “Namaste” performing by joining both palms together. It literally means “the divine in me salutes the divine in you”.
  • Bring a universal plug and voltage adapter kit for your Electronics. Nepal uses 220V.
  • Do not trek alone. There have been numerous disappearances of solo trekkers in recent years. Always hire a guide or trek with other people.
  • Avoid water that is not bottled or boiled. Avoid raw vegetables and pre-cut fruit as much as possible.
  • Do not fully rely on schedules and times that are committed to you. Have time buffer as much as you can between your major plans and activities.
  • Always be alert/aware of “Bandhs” (Strikes – where no transportation is allowed) as they can alter all your travel plans substantially.
  • Be sure to exchange back all the Nepalese currencies before you leave. They are not accepted outside of Nepal. Besides, taking currency out of the country is against the law.
  • Stay away from dance bars in KTM and PKR. These are tourist traps where they scam you on buying alcohol and food at much inflated prices. Some of these places have a history of intimidation and violence.
  • If you are planning to apply for the Visa at the airport, make sure to have passport size photo available.
  • All nightlife pretty much ends by 10 pm with only a few places around the Thamel area that may stay open a little later.
