Load shedding (Electricity crisis) in Nepal
We are sorry to inform you that though Nepal is rich in water resource, there is electricity crisis in Nepal. It is more likely that there is electricity off for some hours in day and night time.  Most of the hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara and other cities are likely to have no battery back up. Air condition may not work and, sometimes, TV and other electric utensils may not run.
Some hotel is likely to run the TV and AC also. However, only few of them are in this category.
So, be prepared for this while you are traveling here.  For your ease, we recommend you to bring the flashlight with extra bulbs and batteries.

Clothing for the Tour:
· In Nepal you will experience a wide range of climates, so take both light and warm clothing in casual and comfortable styles. You can check your traveling time and can bring the clothing accordingly for the tour. Mostly warm clothes do works. If you are going for trekking you need trekking equipment and accessories.
For lower altitude places such as visiting Chitwan, Bardia, Koshi Tappu light cotton clothing are the best one.

· Comfortable walking shoes are recommendable for the tour and if you are doing hiking as in the itinerary, trekking shoes are recommended. A pair of light sandals is recommended. Our advice is to make sure you ‘wear in' your walking boots/shoes for a number of weeks before your trip – you'll be so much more comfortable if you do so. Sandals with the rugged bottom are good for hiking around town and to wear in showers.

· You will need your own toiletries and towels. And you'll also need your own little medical kit, sewing repair kit and a good head lamp with extra bulbs and batteries. Nepal is facing load shedding problem so everyday electricity cut off occurs. It is longer hours in the summer time, most of our chosen hotels have Generator back up but at night it may not run so bring the head lamps for convenient.

You can store the luggage in the hotels so you can also bring the better clothing for looking good while around the city like Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Sunglasses are a must. A warm hat, gloves for winter for hiking, swimming customs for rafting and Elephant bathing at Chitwan, good socks and a sun hat are very useful for Jungle safari tour and for warm sightseeing days in town too.

Clothing’s Suggestion for Women Travelers:
Wearing a bikini/revealing bathing suit when rafting/swimming is an offensive mistakes unless it is in your own hotel swimming pool. At swimming pools, women wear bathing suits with skirts around the bottoms. And for rafting and kayaking, we recommend you were surfing type shorts and sport shirts that dry easily. If you want to wear your bathing suit underneath it is fine.

Here are some things you might want to bring from home depending on your planned activities:

• Walking/hiking, trekking, river shoes – broken in.
• Clothes you can layer. Jacket, T-shirts, fleece, windbreaker, shorts, lightweight pants, sport pants, gloves & sun hat (for summer and autumn season, not a lot of clothes).
• A nice shirt/pants for nightlife
• Good camera – this country is a feast for the eyes, and a photographer’s dream!
• Pocket size Flashlight (you can buy it here if need be, but there are always power cuts, so have it handy! (It seems like the lights go off whenever you are in an unfamiliar toilet.)
• A sarong (for girls) and/or a light weight towel.
• Ladies, if you like wearing a little make-up when you go out, bring it. It is hard to find here. Most of the make-up here is really weird, cheap stuff. Just bring a couple things that make you feel happy for the party nights!

Shopping in Nepal:

If you want to buy some new clothes in Kathmandu, you can go for out of Thamel. You can get Western style clothes in Durbar Marg, Asan, Kathmandu Mall and various other new rising shopping centers. You can get designer label clothes for literally a few dollars, custom made jeans, the price is much cheaper here but the quality compromises that never meets the Western Standards.
