Tourism in Nepal is safe and will remain safe. The Popular tourism destination like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Everest region, Annapurna region, Langtang region, etc. are considered very safe regions. These days a Bandha is rare. The Bandh is a strike called by any political party. However you can expect some change in the itinerary if a Transport strike is called by a political party. Such strike has zero effect in sight seeing in Kathmandu valley or trekking.
The illegal Trekking or Travel agency, trekking operator / tour operator, Individual trekking guide /freelancer, personal website creator for tourism activities are only concerned with their own wealth and often pay their trekking staff very less and in most occasion don’t offer them insurance, proper equipment or any other kind of support so concerning all the adventure trip so to choose the government registered Nepal trekking or travel company is one of the best scheme to concrete your dream in to the reality.
Known as the land of snowy peaks, incredible landscapes, and impressive mountains, Nepal is a country that has culture, adventure, and adrenaline rolled into one. Home to ten of the highest peaks in the world, it is no wonder that this place is frequented by adventure junkies from all over the world. However, during our trip to Nepal, what surprised me the most was the fact that beyond the mighty Himalayan mountains, the country itself is incredibly diverse and lush. Offering tourists a wide array of things to do, Nepal is a country that didn’t disappoint.
1.Before Visiting to Nepal.
Before you head off on your Nepal tour, there are some things you should consider knowing and having, to save you from a bad experience whilst in this stunningly beautiful Himalayan kingdom. Travel insurance, while not a requirement in Neal, is a good thing to have just in case something untoward happens, such as having your wallet stolen or needing hospital care. A good travel insurance does not cost a lot, and can save your life if things go wrong in Nepal. Hospitals in Nepal are not free, and you will need to show an ability to make the payments first. All of the hospitals have affiliations with the major insurance companies, and can quickly and easily validate and verify your travel insurance to take care of the bill, or transfer you to another country or even home, in severe cases.
2. Social Etiquette in Nepal
First and foremost, you‘ll want to know how to greet the locals. The traditional manner of greeting in Nepal involves placing your palms together in a prayer style and saying “namaste” or “namaskar”. Address anyone older than you with respect using the terms “dai” for men and “didi” for women. And avoid stepping over someone‘s outstretched legs or touching anyone with your feet as these are considered impolite.
3. Water Safety in Nepal
If you plan on staying in Nepal for a while, you may want to pack a boiling pan and filter for the tap water. Water from the tap is not safe for consumption, even if it‘s from your hotel. Remember to also avoid fruit that may have been washed in contaminated water or drinking soft drinks with ice in them, as the ice may have been made from tap water. Stick to bottled water, which can be found in just about every store in the country.
4. Solo women trekking in Himalaya Nepal
Solo trekking not recommends for any female traveler to the Himalayas because of the safety point of views, illness and accidents. It is better to search and find the travel mate or to join the group with fix departure with other trekking agency or hire a guide or porter for safety that helpful to know the local people, language, culture and lifestyle.
