- Social Etiquette in Nepal
Greet the locals by placing your palms together in a prayer style and saying “Namaste” or “Namaskar”. Use the terms “Dai” for men and “Didi” for women. Avoid stepping over someone‘s outstretched legs or touching anyone with your feet as it is an impolite manner. Note that it is never acceptable to wear revealing clothing (including shorts), particularly for women. While swimming, stick to a one-piece and leave the bikini at home. Public displays of affection are also frowned upon in Nepal.
If you are lucky enough to be invited into a Nepali home, remember to remove your shoes before entering. Wash your hands and mouth prior to eating. Always wait for the host to serve you and avoid “polluting” food by letting it come into contact with a used plate or utensil. Don‘t use your own spoon or fork to serve food. Bon appetit!
- Adventure Experiences in Nepal
Grab the best gears and hire a guide, as the woods and mountain areas can be tricky and getting lost or injured is a real risk. If mountain climbing is on your itinerary, be aware of and prepared for the possibility of altitude sickness and frostbite. Dress accordingly and do not take on more than you can handle. Whatever your pleasure, be aware of the risks and use caution during your adventures.

Pack a boiling pan and filter for the tap water. Water from the tap is not safe for consumption, even if it is from your hotel.

Owning to its demanding geographical location and climatic variation, the domestic flights in Nepal are mostly prone to flight delays and cancellation. As the Tribhuwan International Airport in Nepal doesn’t have the technology of Instrumental Landing System, the adverse weather conditions like heavy rain, thick fog, strong winds, etc. may lead to flight delays and cancellation. Also, the topography of Nepal is difficult, therefore it is safe not to take off the flight in those adverse weather conditions. As you can know from the best trekking season section in our website, autumn season (November- September) is the most preferred trekking season when the weather is dry, clear and stable. At this time of year, flight delays and cancellation is very rare. For other seasons, weather cannot be guaranteed. Monsoon season (June- August) is highly prone to flight delays and cancellation. The strong winds, rain, and patchy clouds make the view unclear. Also, in the winter season, flights may get canceled due to thick fog. Therefore, if you are traveling to Nepal, it is recommended to apportion one or two days for spare in case your flight gets canceled and you are in short of scheduled time. In other cases, road transportation can be an option. However, in the case of a flight to Lukla, you may have to change your entire schedule if you are in short of time as there is no other option owing to its dramatic location.
(Note: Travel Insurance is highly recommended. In case of flight cancellation, if you are in short of time and are unable to catch your scheduled flight back in Kathmandu, Nepal Lion Treks can charter a helicopter at your service. However, the cost should be borne by you which can later be claimed through the insurance company.)
