Security

Nepal is generally safe for the tourists, but visitors should take basic precautions. Here are some useful advisories:

  • Do not carry or display large amounts of cash.
  • Use ATMs located inside hotel, commercial buildings and banks.
  • Do not leave your belongings unattended.
  • Be cautious when commuting in crowded bus and check how to get to your destination in advance because commuting can get a bit complicated. If you are taking a taxi, make sure the driver understands where you want to go.
