Nepal

Discover

While traveling in Nepal you will be introduced to both fascinating culture and unparalleled natural beauty? Whoever decides to travel to Nepal will never regret this choice! Your stay in Buddha's mystical homeland guarantees fantastic vistas, countless open-air museums, and a fascinating population that you will receive with open arms. Be amazed by the impressive Himalayan mountains, royal cities such as the capital Kathmandu, charming villages, and the green rice terraces. A trip in Nepal is an experience you will never forget in all respects.

Nepal is inextricably linked to the Himalayas; of the ten highest mountains in the world, there are no fewer than eight in the Asian country. The highlight is of course Mount Everest, which is located on the border with Tibet. Marvel at the dazzling height differences and enjoy the breathtaking views in this area! Those who travel through Nepal already experience one highlight after another in terms of nature. What do you think of the wild rivers between the mountains, which offer you the opportunity to go rafting in a film-like environment? Or of the many wild animals, such as monkeys, crocodiles, and tigers, that you can spot in the Chitwan National Park, for example? Pokhara is located on a beautiful mountain lake in the Himalayas where you can row, hike and swim and at the same time enjoy the view of the highest snow-covered mountain tops.

All elements in the field of nature and culture make for a unique travel destination, and we have not even mentioned the heart-warming and traditional population. Meet the hospitable people in Kathmandu and the rest of the country during Nepal travel!

We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. We don’t issue any insurances; however, we recommend using www.worldnomads.com

Health We recommend you contact your family physician, or your local travel clinic for the most up-to-date health information at least three months before departure or in case of a last-minute tour, as soon as you confirm your travels. Travellers are also advised to carry a basic first-aid kit and hand sanitisers/antibacterial wipes on their travels. Medical facilities are basic throughout these countries. For your own safety, we strongly recommend that you advise your local guide of any medical condition that may affect you while travelling. Your local guide will be able to inform you of local health advisories (e.g. drinking water quality). Please ensure you have all the inoculations recommended by your doctor.

Allergies and dietary restrictions This is something we take very seriously. Upon booking with us, we will send you a form in which you will be able to indicate any dietary preference or restriction or any specific request you might have. We will then provide that information in advance to all the hotels.

Safety and Security Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure. 
We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, bank cards, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewellery at home - you won't need it while travelling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.
Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of your group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our local guides have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.

Photography and drone laws Please refrain from taking photos of police stations, airports, bus stations, immigration or border crossings, army barracks and personnel, or any government building.

Climate In northern Nepal summers are cool and winters are severe, while in the south, summers are very hot while winters are mild to cold. Nepal has five seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.
In the Tarai(southern Nepal), summer temperatures exceed 40℃ and above 45 in some areas, while winter temperatures range from 7℃ to 23℃.In mountainous regions, hills and valleys, summers are temperate while winter temperatures can plummet to subzero. The Kathmandu Valley has a pleasant climate with average summer temperatures of 20℃- 35℃ and 2℃-12℃ in winter. Average temperatures in Nepal drop 6℃ for every 1000 m you gain in altitude.

Best time to visit The best time to visit Nepal depends on what you plan to do while in the country. Fall/autumn and spring are the most popular times to visit for hikers, climbers and mountaineers. At this time, clear skies and pleasant temperatures create the ideal conditions for adventures in the mountains.
Low season (which coincides with the monsoon season) can be an option if you’re on a budget. Firstly, you’re likely to find discounts on accommodation and tours – plus, you won’t have to deal with crowds. Secondly, if you don’t plan on hitting the Himalayas, the monsoon season can be a great time to visit.
Spring is a good time to visit Nepal’s valleys and forests. March marks the start of the blooming season in many parts of the country and large areas are covered in bright pink rhododendrons – Nepal’s national flower. This is also a great time to explore Centres of Buddhist culture and architecture, such as the Tengboche monastery.
You can have a fabulous travel experience in Nepal during the winter. Low humidity and minimal chances of rain make this season great for travel photography and low-altitude hikes. sensational, but our month by month climate guide highlights the benefits of travelling out of season, too.

Plastic bags Plastic bags are banned from entering Nepal. However, plastics carrier items known as “Ziplock bags” that are specifically used to carry toiletries will be permitted as they are expected to remain in the permanent possession of visitors and are not expected to be disposed of in the country. 

Money and currency The official currency in Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee (NPR or Rs). The issuing of the Nepal Rupee is controlled by The Nepal Rastra Bank. You can exchange your money into Nepal Rupee at banks, authorised hotels and stores, etc. Every traveller is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travellers may drink more than others while other travellers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping and tipping. We always recommend carrying enough cash if you would like to pay for something in a remote place and the credit card machine cannot connect to any network.

Dress code While packing your luggage for Nepal, it’s important to remember that the country is very conservative and deeply religious. Bare shoulders or knees will be seen as disrespectful and will make it nearly impossible to visit ancient ruins, temples, or UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Many Nepali women wear the traditional costumes of saris or a kurta, which is a long cotton shirt worn over matching leggings. In cities, young Nepali women will wear Western-style jeans with Eastern-style moderate tops.
