Yes. Nepal is a safe, low-crime country. Since the country became a secular republic in 2008, there are limited safety conscerns. Avoid rallies, marches, and demonstrations. Be vigilant when traveling abroad. When traveling alone, ask a guide or agent about safe/unsafe regions.
Please watch your stuff at train/bus stations and airports. Always keep your purse and wallets zip-locked.Pickpockets and distraction scams abound in markets.
Stay on recognized paths and walk with a group or guide, as Armed Maoists demand a 'tax' from trekkers on some routes.
What is the currency of Nepal?
Nepal's currency is closed, so you won't be able to buy it before you arrive. Traveling with US Dollars is a good idea, as they are widely accepted. It is critical that all of the United States bills be newer than 2006, clean, and undamaged.
The exchange rate is also better in Kathmandu. Hotels in Kathmandu can also help you exchange money. Teahouses prefer local cash to dollars, so bring some with you when you go on the hike itself.
What kind of plug does Nepal use?
220 volts is the usual voltage in Nepal and there are two types of electrical sockets - type D, which has three round pins and type C, which only has two round pins.
