Nepal


Steep valleys, fluttering prayer flags, buddhist mantras lingering in the air, high mountains and a welcoming smile, Nepal is an Himalayan Kingdom like no other.

Flanked by the mighty Everest, the Earth's highest mountain, and with seven more peaks sprinkled around the country, Nepal offers a big promise… of an adventure unbeaten.

The mesmerising Kathmandu city, blissful treks amidst the rhododendron forests of the Annapurna, stunning rhinos in Chitwan National Park, art and traditions unfolding at the Durbar Square or the delicious momos on the streets of Nepal.

Whatever you pick to explore, this country and its warm people are ready to embrace you in its magical atmosphere.

GOOD TO KNOW

  • Enter with an open mind
  • Avoid tap water. Be sure to purchase bottled water during your time in Nepal.
  • For a consistent internet throughout Nepal, buy a Nepalese SIM. We recommend buying the SIM at the airport, where there is assistance in activating it.
  • It would be a good idea to carry a face mask and use it during your sightseeing, as cities like Kathmandu can be dusty.
  • The traditional manner of greeting in Nepal involves placing your palms together in a prayer style and saying "namaste" or "namaskar".
  • You can easily get Nepalese rupees from ATMs or banks on most street corners or the airport. Using cash will be much better than using cards, as transaction fees tend to be high.
  • As a religious country many places in Nepal are considered sacred territory. Adorn modest clothes, when entering any religious sites and even some restaurants.
  • While the street food is amazing, try it only if you have a strong stomach to palate it.
