Come back to your lodging or guesthouses on time.

Nepal does not have numerous instances of assaults, murders or torments with visitors. Nepal is a poor nation so individuals here feel that all vacationers are so rich. Try not to convey bunches of resources and loads of cash with you. It is smarter to convey a little amount of cash and get from Visa card at whatever point you require more.
