Cultural Question: Nepal & beards?

Travel Forums Asia Cultural Question: Nepal & beards?

Over the last 5 months I've grown a fairly large beard. I will be working with Nepalis in our community quite a bit here soon. Is there any insight to shave it or does it not matter?

Thanks,
Jeromy

They wont regard you any different if you have a tidy beard, or maybe a bit of a novelty.

A lot of Nepalis do not have beards but yours sure won't scare them ;)

does not matter to them. If you are kind and caring, that indeed impacts to them.
