Preparation

Get your vaccines done ;one of the first things I did was to get the appropriate vaccines for the country, especially given the fact that I was gonna spent a few days in a Monastery where one of the rules is "not to kill anything, even small insects", so you better be ready. Head to this link https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/country/159/nepal and see that they list for 'most travellers' three types of vaccinations, which is the ones I had:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Tetanus
  • Typhoid

You can get an appointment with your local GP and get all these 3 vaccines (it actually come in 2 shots only) done, but you are like me and can't be bother, you can visit this clinic in London where they'll give you all the required injections https://www.londontravelclinic.co.uk for a 'symbolic' price of £115

Travel insurance ;don't you dare to board a plane overseas without such an insurance. I got mine from the Post Office https://www.postoffice.co.uk/travel-insurance at the price of £57 (premier cover level) and for a coverage period of two weeks

Visa

Rather than online (who knows, I've heard there are many power cuts in Katmandhu) I obtained the visa on arrival: http://www.nepalimmigration.gov.np/page/visa-on-arrival You need 30 US dollars, fill in your arrival card, of course
