Some Useful Tips

At the same, one may be confused regarding some customs, traditions andmanners as in coming into any unfamiliar society. Nepal like any other country, has its own ways of regulating life though it might be different in degrees to each individual visitors. We want the visitors to observe and see the ways of Nepalese people and share with them. It is in this spirit that we offer some practical guidelines that could help to make the stay delightful and rewarding.

Social Outlook

Since the majority of our people live in rural areas, their outlook to life is simple and traditional. In fact, they take special delight in the company of foreign visitors but there are certain things that are alien or embarrassing to Nepalese people. Here are few things to keep in mind.

Our office is located at Bhrikuti Mandap, Kathmandu, Tourist Service Center Building, and also we have complaint counters at the Airport and Basantapur Durbar Square.
