Home to grand Mt. Everest, the country of Lord Buddha, and one of some countries in the world never to have been conquered by other countries, this majestic country includes various landscapes from the Himalayan Mountains in the north to the flat broad fields in the south. Wide chasms, overlooking mountains, lively culture and charismatic people – Nepal is the perfect destination for travelers and history vultures.
At the same time, before going to such a country, keep in mind the following things:
1. Social Etiquette in Nepal
First and foremost, you‘ll need to know how to approach the locals. The conventional manner of approaching in Nepal includes putting your palms together in a prayer way and telling “namaste” or “namaskar”. Address any people older than you with honor using the words “dai” for men and “didi” for women. And evade stepping over someone‘s outstretched legs or touching them with your feet as these are viewed as rude.
2. Escapade in Nepal
Knowing Nepal‘s lovely region, it‘s no wonder that it‘s one of the world‘s most famous places for adventure tourism. When you‘re clutching your gear, make sure you take a friend too. Trekking or hiking solo is risky for a lot of reasons. You may also need to have a guide with you since the woods and mountain since it could be difficult and getting lost or damaged is a real danger.
3. Water Security in Nepal
If you plan on visiting Nepal for a while, you may need to bring a boiling pan and filter for the tap water. Water from the tap is not secure for drinking, even if it‘s from your hotel. Please take note to also avoid fruit that may have been exposed to contaminated water or drinking soft drinks with ice in them, because it may have been produced from tap water.
Also, sometimes the water is cold, so you might look for a place with water heater replacement.
4. Nepali Food (Dal Bhat)
When you‘re going to Nepal, don‘t forget to always remind yourself to eat happily. Giving everything from regular fare to famous international foods, you‘ll never go hungry there. Usual Nepali course is called Dal Bhat, and consists of rice and lentils. Side dishes normally involve a variety of fresh vegetables.
