What to do


Medical Checklist

Even if you are not health conscious, you better consult with your doctor and pharmacists for brands and necessary medicines. Because, the medical facility or treatment you find in your country may not be possible to find here, so as the medicine. The brand you may take in a kind of illness you suffer from may not be possible to find here. Thus make the lists of medicines and medical equipment. The medicines including that of Aspirin for preventing pain for fever, flu tablets for nasal decongestant, multivitamins for a longer trip, an antihistamine for allergies, antibiotics particularly when you are traveling off the beaten trail, anti-inflammatory for muscle pain, medicine for diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, rehydration to prevent dehydration, insect repellent, sunscreen, lip balm, and eyes drops, antifungal cream, bandages, band-aids (plasters) and other wound dressings, water purification tablets, scissors, tweezers and a thermometer, sterile kit in case you need injections in a country with medical hygiene problems. For this, all the details of medicines and medical lists, discuss with your doctor and pharmacists.

Similarly, you better have the necessary vaccinations before you visit Nepal, although there is a rare chance of serious illness, in case you may suffer from it.
Bring at least a few passport size photos and Nepali cash for visa on-demand at the airport and at the border crossing, also for trekking permit and Trekking Information Management System cards that are necessary during your trekking in the Himalayas.

Likewise, you have to be conscious enough and prepare for necessary trekking gears, many items can be obtained, purchased, or can be taken in rent but may not be as original or durable as that of stuff as of your country. The essential gears mean, for instance, footwear, clothing, etc which needs to be brought from your country depending upon the activities you wish to organize or in a particular season you wish to travel.
