FAQ



Yes, but it is very easy to get one. You can get a visa on arrival at the airport or at the border crossings which are open to tourists. You just need to carry your passport (which should be valid for at least 6 months and should have a free page for the visa), passport size photos and the visa fee (some crossings insist on USD).

As Nepal is a conservative country, it is best to avoid revealing, short or tight clothes, especially while sightseeing. During winter (October to February) you will have to carry woollens or jackets but otherwise medium-weight clothes will do. As you might be walking a lot, carry comfortable walking shoes and sandals for warm weather. If you are undertaking any adventure activities, your travel agent will tell you what else to carry. If you plan to visit religious places, you should carry a scarf to cover your head.

Malaria could be a risk in the low lying areas so you should carry insect repellent and take preventive steps. For any other seasonal risks, we will inform you about what cautionary steps you need to take.

In general, Nepal is safe and has very less crime. But since 2008, there has been some turmoil, following the change of Nepal to a secular republic. Towards the end of 2015, when Nepal adopted a new constitution, there was more political turmoil. So, you should find out the situation before making your travel plans. Once there, you should avoid areas where demonstrations, protests or public gatherings are going on and take advice from your guide or hotel staff. Also, be aware of pick pockets and fraudsters and guard your belongings well. There have been instances of Maoists demanding money before allowing trekkers to pass on certain tracks, so do not trek alone and stay on the main tracks.

Though English is a foreign language for them, in the city most people understand it enough for basic purposes.
