Safety Nepal

In many ways, Nepal is a safe country. Mugging and other forms of physical violence against tourists occur only sporadically. Theft is also less frequent than in Britain, despite the wide difference in wealth between westerners and Nepali. Still, in the eyes of the local population each ‘white nose’ is a millionaire and those who come into contact with you will make numerous efforts to share in your infinite wealth in some way. In almost all cases this will come in the form of begging or ripping you off. This relative security does not mean, however, that you can afford to be careless with money, valuables and luggage. Cash and travel documents are best worn underneath your clothing. Do not leave anything valuable in your hotel room – it is better not to invite theft. In each hotel, you can leave valuables at reception in exchange for a token.
