    The best time to visit?
    March – May and then September to early November are the best times to visit, weather wise. For major festivals, the best times are the monsoon months (June-August).

    Attire
    Kathmandu is hot from March to May. September is cool with chances of rain, so carrying umbrellas is wise. Avoid dresses that reveal too much of your body.  

    Visa
    The minimum duration of a tourist visa to Nepal is fifteen days and costs $25.

    What to do when inside temples and monasteries?
    Most places that forbid entry to foreigners carry signboards stating this, so look for them. Although religious buildings are sites of historical and artistic appeal, they are above all places of worship. Do not act in any way – excessive photography, talking loudly, wearing shoes into prayer rooms – that impinges on the activities of the priests or devotees.

    Documents and IDs
    Forms for most things – cell phone sim cards, visa extensions, hotel forms – in Nepal require passport size photos, so bring a dozen or more. Your passport is your ID while in Nepal. Carry it everywhere.

    Hospitals
    There are ample hospitals in Kathmandu. Some of the most modern ones are Norvic, Grande, and B & B.
