    I am sure that many people who want to visit Nepal will find this guide very helpful. I can see why people might want to stay longer. A good reminder that you must apply for a visa extension. Altitude sickness is something that many people assume won’t happen to them. Pacing and adjustment is necessary. I would not have thought to worry about air pollution in Nepal. We carried masks in China so would definitely want them in Kathmandu. And in all of Asia we worried about water quality. So many great tips here. I am sure you wish you knew them all before you visited.

    True, Nepal has plenty of hidden gems beyond the mountain ranges. for the longest time I thought Nepal equates to Everest. But beyond the mountains, Nepal has a plethora on offering on cultural front. I love the masks, mask dance, the ancient temples and related vibes and Chitwan National Park too! Stunning is a word that befits what Nepal travel in every aspect!

    As a hiker, these are all very good tips and I hope to come to Nepal soon to do some hiking as i never been to the country. Very good tip about not walking alone and I am shocked that the number of visitors who get lost is increasing every year. Do many return? Do a lot of tourists die because they are off the beaten tracks? That would be interesting to know. The only thing I hate about visitors going to Nepal is when they go to Everest Base Camp (or beyond) and leave a lot of rubbish up there! That does annoy me.

      Many visitors make the mistake of not informing anyone before their solo hike trips or not educate themselves well on the area they would travel on. I am thrilled that you like the post and hope you do visit Nepal pretty soon.

    This is such a useful post that I have saved for my trip. Things like hiking with a certified guide or changing the rupees upon leaving the country would never come to my mind. Thanks for the post!

    This is a very informative and comprehensive article about Nepal. We were there in Nepal last year for two weeks and enjoyed ourselves. However, to really have an immersive and enjoyable experience one needs to be aware of the many aspects of the country and its people, your post comes in handy in that respect.
