What to wear?

Nepal being a Himalayan Kingdom and very close to snowy peaks, it is advisable to all visitors to bring pairs of warm clothes. The monsoon starts from mid of May to last of August. An umbrella or a rain coat is necessary. During summer, pair of light trousers along with T-shirts is sufficient but it is chilly in the morning and evening hrs. Winter is cold about -2 degree minimum without any snowing in any valleys. A warm jacket like trekking gears is the most. Travelling in cities e.g. Kathmandu and Pokhara, sport shoes is enough and comfortable.

It is better to be decently clad when visiting any place. Sun and beachwear is not proper when roaming around. Briefs, shorts, bare shoulders and backs may not be appreciated. One need not be stiff and overdressed but comfortably and decently covered.
