General Questions

You can get your visa on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport itself or alternatively, you can also apply for Nepal Visa at your nearest Nepal Embassy.  For further information, you can directly get in touch with your point of contact, who can assist you better.

It's your choice! You can explore the country as a solo traveler or hop around with your favorite people if they are willing to join you as well. If you are coming in a group of more than 5, we can also provide you with customized packages as well as amazing discounts.

As tourism is flourishing in Nepal at a rapid rate, it's pretty safe for solo travelers. You will be provided accommodation in a very safe locality. However, we would suggest you not to hang out with strangers till late night, and be with your fellow travelers in case you are heading out somewhere. We'll have our coordinators who'll be there at your service, 24/7. So you need not worry about safety.

You might come here alone, but you'll end up meeting some amazing people. In case you want to get in touch with others who are traveling to Nepal, you can join our Facebook Group and chitchat with your fellow travelers!

You need to buy your Medical and Travel Insurance before setting out for your trip. GDA also provides the insurance facilities, at an additional cost.

It's good if you can consult your physician and take the vaccinations as instructed. We would suggest you to take the Hepatitis A and B, Typhoid, Tetanus vaccines. You must also check with your doctor for any other medicines that you might require.

There's something or the happening throughout the year, and each festival in the country has its own charm. The main festivals are Dashain and Tihar (Sept/ Oct), Buddha Jayanti (May/ June). Check your dates and our coordinator will guide you about the festivals you can be a part of.

You'll need money for your personal expenses, additional tour costs, weekend meals (at times, if you are heading out for lunch or dinner) etc. It'll be sufficient if you keep $40 - $50 for each day.

Nepal is surrounded by the Himalayas on all sides, and thus, the temperature is moderately cold throughout the year. We would suggest you carry woolens and warm clothes if you are traveling from October to March. If you are visiting from April to September, you can pack cotton clothes and a jacket would suffice. It's wiser to travel light and pack only the essentials. Don't make your luggage too heavy, as you'll get almost everything in Nepal! 

Nepali is the official of the country, but people do speak English as well. Your coordinator will be well versed in English. Apart from that, you'll be given basic Nepali lessons during your orientation. So you need not worry about language barrier!
