Trip Planning FAQs
When is the best time to visit Nepal?
There are mainly two seasons in Nepal. The dry season is from October to next May and the rainy season is from June to September. Most people choose to take Nepal private tours during the dry season with less rainfall. There are more chances that the Himalayas are clear and dry with great visibility.
What should I plan for the best Nepal private tours?
It depends on your tour duration. For about one week tour, you could visit Kathmandu with Chitwan National Park or Pokhara. If you have more than one week, you could add Lumbini, Dhulikhel or Nagarkot. Our private tours of Nepal offer you different tour itineraries, and we are also happy to offer custom services.
Do I need a visa to Nepal?
Yes, you need a visa to visit Nepal. But it is quite simple and convenient to get the visa on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, which is the only international airport in Nepal. While if you enter Nepal from other borders, you will need to apply for the visa in advance.
What currency should I use in Nepal?
The official currency in Nepal is Rupee. Although USD could be used in some places, it is still advised to take some Rupees for a better deal. There are many exchange offices licensed by the government around the sightseeing sites. Also, there are ATM machines in major cities, like Kathmandu, Pokhara, etc. You could withdraw some cash with your credit card. While if you go to the mountain area, you need to prepare some cash in advance.
