If you are traveling to Nepal then you must hire a taxi. But Nepal is a beautiful country to explore So, you can go through by your own through trekking.

Also is anyone able to tell me about how they phoned people back in the UK? What mobile sim did you use?at the moment on my sim I can't call/text if I'm outside of Europe. Thanks. :)

I was in Nepal back in April and they were giving out free SIM cards at the airport after immigration and baggage collection. They helped activate mine in my unlocked iPhone and then I bought a recharge voucher in a local store. You can get lots of packages but I chose a 60 day one that gave me data and calls for about $18. The people are really friendly and someone will help you if you ask. Don't be afraid.

The form of greeting in Nepal is “Namaste” performing by joining both palms together. It literally means “the divine in me salutes the divine in you”.
There have been numerous disappearances of solo trekkers in recent years. Always hire a guide or trek with other people. There are online forums where travelers can look for fellow-trekkers. This applies to everyone but especially women that are travelling single – they seem to more vulnerable. Always communicate your travel plans to your next of kin.

Nepal is the best destination and landlocked nation, sandwiched between India and Tibet and stretched out along the spine of the Himalayan range.

Has Nepal been downgraded? Last time I looked in the atlas, Nepal was a country!

Hey! It Kristoff Schoeffling here!

Glad you are visiting Nepal. Well I would say, visiting once is not enough. From the birthplace of Buddha to the highest peak of the world, the people of Nepal will steal your heart. ;)
