Important Note

Best time to travel Nepal


Nepal is a country of differences with various landscapes, including towering mountain ranges, lush forests, and a vibrant cultural heritage. The best time to travel to Nepal depends on your preferences and the type of excursions or events you intend to participate in. Generally, Nepal has four distinct seasons, each with unique charms and challenges. 


Fitness and Training 


Nepal is home to some of the world's highest and most challenging High Himalayan peaks, including Mount Everest, and attracts many adventure enthusiasts who wish to trek and climb in the Himalayas. However, these activities require physical fitness and training to ensure a safe and successful journey. 

Trekking in Nepal involves walking long distances, sometimes several hours a day, over varied terrain and at high altitudes. Therefore, it is recommended to start fitness activities several months before the trip, including cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and endurance training. It will help build stamina, increase lung capacity, and prepare the body for the physical demands of trekking. 

beside to physical fitness, it is essential to have proper training and knowledge of high-altitude climbing and trekking techniques. It includes knowing the consequences of altitude sickness, correct breathing methods, and the usage of climbing gear such as ice axes, crampons, and ropes. It is highly recommended to undergo an introductory mountaineering course or training program before embarking on a high-altitude trek or climb in Nepal. Suitable clothing and equipment are crucial for any trip to Nepal, including sturdy hiking boots, warm clothes, a sleeping bag, and a first aid kit. Having travel insurance covering medical evacuation in an emergency is also important.  

Additionally, travelers should pay attention to their bodies and take rest breaks as necessary. Acclimatization is critical to avoiding altitude sickness, so taking a rest day every few days is recommended to allow the body to adjust to the higher altitude. 

Thus, physical fitness, proper training, and adequate preparation are necessary for a successful and safe journey from Nepal to Nepal. Travelers should also know the risks and challenges of high-altitude trekking and climbing and take the required safety measures to ensure a fun and safe journey. 

Packing Checklist 

One of the essential aspects of planning a journey in Nepal is packing the right gear, including proper clothing, equipment, and other accessories. Trekking in the severe terrain of Nepal requires adequate planning and good preparation, from backpack to luggage binding. Your packing list should be tailored to the trek you plan to undertake, the time of the year you're traveling, and your preferences. 

Further, you must pack light if you carry your gear throughout the trek by not hiring a porter. It is better to rent or buy equipment in Nepal to save space in your luggage. It is also necessary to ensure your gear is high quality and in good condition, as you want to avoid any trouble in the mountains with faulty equipment. So, it is better to take our suggestions when preparing your baggage for traveling in Nepal. 

Beyond all this, if you want a safe and comfortable trip to Nepal, list all the gear you need, double-check the weather forecast, and ensure you have everything you need during the journey. 


Entry permit and requirements (About Visa) 


To enter Nepal, tourists must possess a valid passport and a visa. A visa can be acquired at entry points or the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. However, certain nationalities must obtain a permit before arrival and verify the regulations with the closest Nepalese embassy. 

The nationalities that do not get visas from immigration entry points in Nepal are Nigeria, Iraq, Ghana, Afghanistan, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Palestine, Ethiopia, and a few more. 


There are three types of Visa available, as in the table below: 


Days Visa Fee 15 US$ 30, 30 US$ 50, 90 US$ 125 


The visa fee could be paid in US$ or other major currencies, and in some cases, Nepalese rupees can also be used. 

Similarly, a business visa is valid for up to 5 years. It incurs a fee that is dependent on the amount of investment made. The processing fee for a business visa varies based on the amount invested. For investors who invest less than 10 million Nepalese rupees, the cost is USD 35 per month, US$ 400 per year, and US$ 1000 for five years. For those who invest more than 10 million Nepalese rupees, the fee is US$ 20 per month, US$ 200 per year, and US$ 500 for five years. However, investors who invest more than 100 million Nepalese rupees are not required to pay any charges. 



Note: Tourists from SAARC countries will get a free visa valid for 30 days. Moreover, a permit is not required for the citizens of India, but they have to show a valid identification card like a passport or citizenship card. 

Additionally, foreign visitors to Nepal must have a passport valid for at least six months from arrival. Travelers must ensure their travel insurance covers medical treatment and emergency evacuation in case of an accident or severe illness. 


Regarding to the TIMS and permits

some regions need separate permit to visit. You can visit our TIMS card and Permit fee section for more details. Drinking Water, Teahouse facilities, and Toilet Facilities 

Visitors visiting Nepal may have doubts about drinking water facilities, teahouse facilities, and Toilet facilities being easily accessible in the Himalayan region of Nepal. We have acquired little information to mitigate your doubts and queries. 


Drinking water facilities 

Staying hydrated is crucial while trekking in the Himalayan region of Nepal. The availability of drinking water varies depending on the area and altitude of the trek. Getting enough tap water in the lower part is relatively easy. Still, as trekkers gain some altitude, the accessibility to pure and safe drinking tap water is difficult, so they must rely on bottled water or water filters. Bottled water is widely available along popular trekking routes but can be expensive due to additional transportation costs. It is advisable to carry a water filtration mechanism or purification tablets that can be used to treat water sourced from natural resources found along the trail. 


Teahouse facilities 


Teahouses are a common form of accommodation on trekking routes in Nepal. They are basic lodges with private or shared rooms, communal eating areas, and private or shared toilet facilities. The quality and amenities of teahouses very widely, but they offer a relatively inexpensive and convenient option for trekkers. These teahouses provide a cozy and comfortable atmosphere for trekkers to rest and relax after a long day of walking. They have included Nepali and international dishes in their menu, giving you more options for choosing your favorite dish. Teahouses in the Himalayan region of Nepal generally offer accommodations with shared rooms consisting of twin beds or bunk beds and shared bathroom facilities. Blankets and pillows are provided, but it is recommended to bring your sleeping bag for added warmth and comfort. 


Toilet Facilities 

Most teahouses have Western-style flush toilets, mainly in lower elevations. However, getting such flush toilet facilities is easier when you ascend higher on your trek. They usually consist of simple squat toilets along the trails and at teahouses at higher altitudes. Water or toilet paper is primarily available in these toilets, but it is recommended to carry your toilet paper. Also, during the trek, you can use the restrooms of nearby teahouses on your trekking routes or find some private place. 


Internet connectivity 

Internet connectivity along the trekking trail in the Himalayan region of Nepal is mostly available. Wi-Fi and internet service are available at some teahouses and lodges, but they may charge a fee for their usage. The signal is weak due to the remote and mountainous location. Besides that, internet connectivity while trekking along the trail is available using a local SIM card and its data packages, which you can buy at Kathmandu airport or other mobile shops near your hotels and use all over the way. You will need a Passport-sized photo and a copy of your passport to get a SIM card. It is better to compare prices and data packages before buying a SIM card as there are two leading telecom companies: Ncell and Nepal Telecom. Proper guidance about the teahouses and their connectivity can add to your travel experience. Hence, as an experienced trek and tour company, we are open to serving you by providing our best service. 


Travel Insurance


Travelers must possess travel insurance when they visit Nepal. They must purchase travel insurance covering all the possible dangers and risks when traveling, including medical emergencies, accidents, and cancellations. We recommend you get travel insurance worth at least USD 100,000. 

Travel insurance gives a sense of assurance and financial security if there are unexpected events like altitude-related sickness, accidents, or illnesses. When choosing travel insurance, it's crucial to consider the kind of activity you'll be undertaking while in Nepal. A well-known insurance provider with an excellent track record and a reputable insurance company providing high-quality coverage and prompt claims handling is recommended. Your insurance policy must mainly cover the chopper rescue cost from the high altitude regions in case of accidents and acute mountain sickness (AMS). 

We highly advise you to take a copy of the insurance policy and emergency contact details with you while traveling. With your travel insurance, you can enjoy the trip to Nepal with peace of mind and create lasting memories.
