*If mountain climbing is on your itinerary, be aware of and prepared for the possibility of altitude sickness and frostbite. Altitude sickness can be fatal, and the onset of pink frothy liquid around your mouth and nose, breathlessness while resting, severe headaches, loss of coordination and vomiting should be treated as AMS. Pack a boiling pan and filter for the tap water. Water from the tap is not safe for consumption, even if it's from your hotel. It is never acceptable to wear revealing clothing (including shorts), particularly for women. Do not touch people in the streets, as it is considered rude and disrespectful. The global number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases now stands at more than 60,000 in at least 27 countries and territories, with the vast majority in mainland China. Although Nepal borders China, Nepal is safe from coronavirus. The Nepalese Civil War (also known as the Maoist Conflict, the Maoist Insurgency or the Maoist Revolution) was a civil war in Nepal fought between the Communist Party of Nepal and the government of Nepal from 1996 to 2006, resulting in the deaths of over 17,000 people including civilians, insurgents, army and police personnel, and the internal displacement of hundreds of thousands of people (mostly of rural Nepal). The war is ended and Nepal is safe for travel. ENJOY NEPAL!!!
