Fortunately the visitors can purchase a visa for Nepal as visa and customs are easy to get through. Visas to Nepal are issued upon arrival. Here are some of the tips for your Nepal tour:
1. US dollars are the preferred method of payment for the visa fees.
2. You will need one passport-sized photo to get a visa for Nepal.
3. Address and contact of where you will be staying
4. Customs: Clearing customs is straight forward, just put your luggage on the scanning belt. Nepal customs is like most other countries where drugs, firearms, plants, fruits, live animals, etc. are not allowed to enter the country.
Taxis: There are small white taxis that can comfortably seat 3 people and hold your luggage in the trunk or roof.
Tourist Bus: Any tour operator in Thamel will book this for you and reserve you a seat. The advantage to this is that during peak times, you are sure to get a seat.
Other modes: The micros (small white mini-vans packed with people) are cheap, usually around 15-20 rupees to anywhere in the city, but they are sometimes full of people and very slow. Rickshaws are from 50-100 rupees to most places you would want to go with this mode of transportation.
Nepal has every category of accommodation facilities. These range from the international standard star hotels to budget hotels and lodges.
1. During Nepal tour, we arrange a 4 star hotels for our valuable guests for comfort and ease.
2. Prices are rising, especially in Kathmandu, but it’s still possible to find a place with pleasant gardens and rooms for less than Rs. 3500 (US$35) a night, including private bathroom and hot water.
3. If you are booking in Pokhara, same applies. You should be able to get a nice (not 5 star, or even 3, but clean and decent) room for 3000-3700 rupees per night, and there is really no need to book ahead in Pokhara, as they actually send guys out on the street to try to get you to come see there guest house and book. There are even cheaper rooms, but you may squirm a little.
The official currency of Nepal is the Nepalese rupee, however Indian rupees and even US dollars are widely accepted. Here are some tips to use the money:
1. Although Indian rupees are used as currency in Nepal, the Indian 500-rupee and 1,000-rupee notes are illegal and can actually result in a fine if you try to use them.
2. Western-connected ATMs can be found in larger towns and cities. You will need to keep your ATM and money changer receipts if you intend to exchange Nepalese rupees on your way out of the country.
3. Be sure to exchange back all the Nepalese currencies after finishing your Nepal tour or trek. They are not accepted (or even exchanged for that matter) outside of Nepal. Besides, taking currency out of the country is against the law.
Being unique and remote from the outside world due to the rugged ranges of the majestic Himalayas peaks, unique ways of life have developed in Nepal. These, in turn, have given rise to different types of customs and traditions in the country.
1. For example, Nepalese do not shake their hands like westerners to greet each other, they instead place their palms together with the fingers up in front of their chest or chin and say “Namaste” or "Namaskar" to superiors.
Nepal has got an actual flexible liberation and that's why it is very difficult to suggest a common cloth for the entire of Nepal. The North, Northeast and Northwestern areas of Nepal are mountainous and thus the average annual temperature is much lower than the southern Nepal that is basically a plain.
1. In the months from April to July, the plain or Terai region is very hot and maximum temperature hovers around 42 c. The best clothes suited to this condition are light cotton dress. These are light and absorb lots of perspirations. In the same season, loitering in the Northern Nepal will require heavy cotton apparels. In fact, in some of the areas around the Greater Himalayas, you will need light winter clothes for Nepal tour.
2. The months between July and October sees most of the rainfalls. The monsoon in Nepal is very generous and it rains a lot in both mountainous as well as Tarai regions. The same clothing, as prescribed in the summers, will do for the Plain or Tarai region but as far as mountainous regions are concerned, you will need moderate winter clothing.
3. The winter sets in the month of November and persists till the month of February. The Tarai region comes under cold waves and experience chilling nights. Heavy winter clothing is required in winters. As far as mountains are concerned, they are out of bound for the tourists in this season.
