Yes, Nepal is a very safe country and Nepalis are usually very welcoming and kind to tourists. Petty crime against tourist is very rare but you should also use the same street smarts as anywhere else.
Please visit your government’s relevant site for updated information:
Altitude sickness typically occurs only above 2400m (8000ft), so if you are travelling to Nepal’s main cities, southern lowlands such as to Chitwan National Park or doing some low altitude treks, such as the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek you will not get altitude sickness.
When trekking above 2400m (8000ft), in most cases you can prevent altitude sickness by ascending slowly and drinking plenty of water. Also, all our itineraries are designed to minimise the chances of altitude sickness.
Please check out our blog for more tips on how to prevent altitude sickness.
Nepali food is amazing. The national dish is Dal Baht (rice and lentils with vegetables and/or meat and garnishes). There is a variety of other dishes that you should taste while in Nepal, please check out our blog for more tips on what to eat in Nepal.
Some travellers experience stomach problems when travelling to Nepal. Here are our tips to avoid it.
Eat local! Local food is generally safer than foreign dishes, as its preparation is a daily habit for Nepalis. Dishes which are cooked at high heat, such as Dal Bhat, and vegetarian food are generally safer, as they minimise the chances of getting nasty bacteria from meat. And although street stalls may be inviting, try to stick to restaurants, which have better facilities to store, preserve and clean the food they prepare.
Avoid any raw produce that you haven’t prepared yourself. This includes, for example, any side cucumber/carrot salad served with Dahl Bhat, lettuce in burgers or drinks containing fruits.
Also avoid any beverages which don’t come in a bottle or any drinks containing ice. Drink fresh milk only if boiled or pasteurized. Whenever you are drinking unbottled water, purify it with water purification tablets or liquid.
The vaccinations you may need may vary depending on the time of the year and area of Nepal you are travelling to. Please check with your doctor what is recommended for you.
You can wear what you like in Nepal, although when visiting religious sites or specific areas, it may be better to avoid tight or revealing clothes.

We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance for peace of mind before and during your trip. It is important that you protect yourself in case you need to cancel your trip last minute, airline’s delays or baggage loss, or medical expenses during your trip.
We do require that you have travel insurance covering helicopter rescue for our trekking trips in the event of sickness or injury.

Tips are expected and appreciated by guides and porters.
Teahouses are usually composed of a dining hall, a toilet/shower room and bedrooms, which are sometimes with and occasionally without private bathrooms.
They are usually family run so you’ll get the chance to experience different aspects of everyday life in the mountains.
The lodges in the more remote or newly opened routes are more rustic and basic than those on the more established trails, but everywhere the hosts are welcoming and hospitable.
We focus on the “in-destination” experience. We provide all the services you will need during your trip in Nepal: tour planning, accommodation, guides, experiences and transfers. We don’t provide travel insurance and the internationals flight to reach Nepal (although we can give you suggestions on the best options).
Simply contact us and let us know what trip you want to book. We will get back to you with your trip information and everything else.

Yes, there are ATM machines in the main cities and tourists hubs. Though, withdrawing can be difficult at times, therefore we strongly recommend that you bring cash in your currency which you will be able to exchange in the many money exchange counters should you need to.
There are no ATM machines or exchange counters in most of the trekking routes, so it’s best to have local Nepali currency at least a day before you start your trek.
The electricity in Nepal is 230V/50 cycles (120V appliances from the USA for example will need a voltage converter). Sockets usually take plugs type C, D and M.
The price of food and drinks can vary according to the restaurant style as it can everywhere else, but eating out in Nepal is generally not expensive.
You may expect to spend from 500 to 1000 NPR per dish in a standard restaurant/teahouse, 250 NPR for a coffee and 50 to 100 NPR for tea.
We recommend that you bring purifying water tables or liquid so you don’t have to buy costly bottled water during your trek (which avoids plastic pollution too).
Even if you are not a shopper, you may want to do some shopping in Nepal 🙂 .
There are hundreds of shops, and even high-end products are relatively affordable. Unique purchases include singing bowls, prayer wheels, Tibetan paintings, handmade paper, hemp clothing and bags, leather products and many more. Check out our blog for more details on what to shop for in Nepal.
