VISA

Nepal of­fers visa upon ar­rivals. A sin­gleen­try visa valid for 15/30/90 days costs US$25/40/100. If you’re from a SAARC coun­try, you can get a 30-day visa for free on ar­rival. You must pay in cash, but all forms of ma­jor cur­rency are ac­cepted and there is an ATM ma­chine for you to with­draw money.

LAN­GUAGE

Nepali is an Indo-Aryan lan­guage sim­i­lar to Hindi, is writ­ten in De­vana­gari script and is the first lan­guage of Nepal. English is a sec­ondary lan­guage spo­ken mostly in large cities like Kath­mandu. Sim­ply smile with a Na­maste and the Nepalese will help you in any way they can.
