Health essentials for traveling in Nepal

Trips are one of the best ways to take a break from the monotonous routine of your day to day lives. As soon vacations arrive, we all hurry up to run to one or the other travel destination where we can relax, enjoy and spend our holidays. Staying in that place, exploring, enjoying, indulging you in the delicacies out there, it all sounds so magical! But remember, all this can get spoilt by nothing but your own health, if you don't be cautious about well being needs!

You can enjoy your vacations only when you feel healthy and spirited from inside.
