If you want to do high altitude trekking and adventure sports activities in Nepal then it is highly recommended that you obtain the Insurance. For the trekking like Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Circuit trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek and Peak climbing voyages it is compulsory for you to take the Insurance.

Therefore, getting the insurance is a wise decision.
Vacation in Correct Season
Nepal is diversified country and experiences the four seasons. The country is divided into three geographical belts and four vegetation groups. Terai flatland possesses the sub tropical forests, hilly region comprises the temperate forests and Himalayan belt possesses alpine as well as zero vegetation. Weather is very unpredictable in most of the Himalayan belts. During the month of monsoon it is highly recommended that you don’t travel Nepal. However, during this time of the year the accommodation, food and transportation is cheaper as compared to the peak season. For the best scenery and climatic conditions Autumn (September, October & November) and Spring (March, April & May) are considered as an excellent time to visit Nepal. If you visit this country during festivals then you will also be able to experience the authentic culture, traditions and values of the people living in Nepal.

It is highly advised that travel in less weight in Nepal. Earlier back in 90’s there were very less teahouses and lodges in remote regions of Nepal. However, nowadays travelers can get safe and hygienic teahouses in some of the remote areas of Nepal. If you want to take various gadgets, clothes and shoes then you can either buy or hire in Kathmandu. Therefore, you don’t need to have extra luggage while traveling to Nepal.
