*You are unlikely to want anything warmer than a fleece during this holiday with the exceptions of the two mornings where you go out to watch the sunrise on the Himalaya. On these mornings you may find a down jacket useful. Down jackets can be hired through KE. Hire equipment is collected on arrival in Kathmandu.

The Nepalese are still traditional and conservative in the way they dress. Therefore to avoid embarrassment on both sides we recommend that you respect this and do not wear revealing clothing or sleeveless tops while visiting Nepal. Shorts are acceptable, but they should reach to just above the knee and be modest and for women it is preferable to wear trousers or a long skirt.
