Essential Info

Exchange of Currency:

  • Major cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara have ATMs, but smaller towns and isolated locations are more comfortable having some cash on hand.


  • Nepal has four distinct seasons: monsoon (September–November), winter (December–February), summer (June–August), and spring (March–May).
  • When the skies are bright and the temperature is comfortable, spring and autumn (September to November) are the finest times to visit.
  • But be aware that Muktinath, which is situated at a higher altitude, experiences year-round cold.
  • Make sure to bring multiple layers of clothing, with a thick jacket specifically for Muktinath.

Packing necessities:

  • It's important to have comfortable walking shoes when visiting temples and crossing difficult surfaces.
  • Bring layers of clothing in case the weather changes, particularly if you plan to visit Muktinath. Remember to pack gloves and a thick hat for the increased altitude.
  • A lightweight umbrella or raincoat comes in helpful from September to November, when monsoon season arrives.
  • For sun protection, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are needed.
  • Having a water bottle is essential, particularly for hiking and staying hydrated.
  • It can be useful to have a headlamp or tiny flashlight, especially during the frequent power outages.
  • If the plugs on your gadgets are not the same as the two-round pin plugs used in Nepal, bring a universal adaptor.

Appropriate Clothing:

  • Dress modestly when you visit temples and other places of worship. This means keeping your legs and shoulders covered.

Cultural Gestures:

  • People are traditionally greeted with a small bow and "Namaste".
  • In Nepal, it is uncommon to see people show affection in public.
  • Prior to entering temples and other places of worship, always take off your shoes.
  • It is customary to haggle at markets and stores.


  • Although Nepal is a generally secure country, you should always use caution. Pay close attention to your possessions, particularly in crowded places.
  • Watch out for altitude sickness, especially if you're going to Muktinath. Take your time climbing and thoroughly acclimate.
  • Stay hydrated by sipping lots of bottled water, particularly while you're at higher elevations.


  • Q1. Can I customize the itinerary?

    Some flexibility may be available (e.g., extra days in Pokhara). Discuss options with the tour operator.

  • The tour includes a jeep ride across rough terrain. While not physically hard, there is a possibility of altitude sickness. Ascend gradually and adapt appropriately.
