Essential Information

VISA REQUIREMENTS

All foreigners need a visa to enter Nepal. You can get it in your country from a Nepalese embassy or upon arrival in Nepal. Most people get their visa upon arrival at Kathmandu Airport.

You need a passport photo and the following fees depend:

                ·            15 days USD 25 or an equivalent convertible currency

                ·            30 days USD 40 or an equivalent convertible currency

                ·            90 days USD 100 or equivalent convertible currency

Cultural Considerations Cultural Considerations 

For those of you who visit Nepal, we recommend cultural information so you can adapt and feel comfortable: The dress code is essential for both men and women. Men and women should wear pants instead of shorts when travelling in Kathmandu. Women must try to be more modest as possible than men in these situations.

Hindus are concerned about the ritual contamination of food when touched by someone outside their caste or religion. Therefore, do not feel cooked meals and do not touch your lips when drinking from a container used by others. Do not eat with a left hand and only give or receive with your right hand. Shoes are considered degrading. So keep them on the floor and pull them out before putting your feet on anything. When entering a Nepalese house, follow your host's example to decide if you need to take off your shoes. However, when you enter a temple or monastery, you must take them off.

On the way, you will pass Buddhist walls, chortens, and Buddhist stupas, follow local traditions, and should turn to the right.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance for every itinerary of our company is a prerequisite for booking a vacation. At the very least, you must have emergency and repatriation health insurance, which should include the cost of mountain rescue, theft, loss, damage, and clinical problems. It is a brilliant idea when travelling in Nepal. There are a variety of guidelines. Read the general terms and conditions of your insurers carefully in an incredibly important part, which is correctly written in the fine print. Some policies exclude "dangerous activities" (including motorcycling and trekking and bungee jumping and rafting).

Select a policy covering clinical and emergency repatriation, including helicopter evacuation for travellers and general medical evacuation. You may prefer a policy that pays directly at hospitals rather than issues them locally and claim them later. In Nepal, most clinical treatments have to pay for upon delivery. If your insurance company doesn't make an advance payment, make sure you get receipts to make claims later.

You must know that you will bear the cost of the evacuation and return procedures. It is your responsibility to pay for the evacuation or medical treatment. You must be fully aware of travel insurance's effects and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that our company guide can initiate helicopter rescue (or other necessary) operations in medical emergencies without first seeking approval from your insurance company in certain circumstances.

Best Religious Trip Ever: Hindu Pilgrimage Tour Review

I come from India, where the Hindu religion is followed as much as in Nepal. Since a month ago, I had planned to visit different temples in Nepal to receive blessings. I am so happy to have been able to visit almost all the temples inside Kathmandu and more outside.

The tallest statue of Shiva in the world, Pashupatinath Temple and Muktinath Temple, were the highlight of my trip. Apart from that, Pokhara and Kagbeni were terrific and had great importance in culture and religion. Many thanks to Kishor and the entire team for helping and supporting me during the tour

We are Hindus and a visit to Pashupatinath was on our minds for a long time. Finally, we were able to visit the temple with many other temples. The place is a spiritual awakening and a blessing for us. We enjoyed our time there and felt refreshed.

The UNESCO cultural heritage sites in Kathmandu were my favorite part of all the places we visited. Nepalese food is delicious. I enjoyed my time in Nepal and hope to return to Nepal soon. Finally, we would like to thank the guides who helped us during the tour and looked after us. I highly recommend this agency for those who want to visit Nepal.
