Adventure Hub Nepal recommend for all our clients to avoid drinking tap water directly, do not also drink fountain drinks. Always drink bottled, boiled water or carbonated drinks in cans or bottles.
There have been cases of many fake bottled glasses of water being sold in Nepal. They don't stand up to the standards. When you buy bottled water from stores, make sure the seal of the bottle isn't tampered with.
Adventure Hub Nepal recommends waiting at least 24 hours for eating any hot or very spicy food. They can create stomach upset. Stay away from salads also as leaves not cleaned properly can contain tiny bugs unseen to eyes. Eat from good, clean restaurants and don't try your luck with roadside vendors.
Always use an insect repellent if you find yourself in a mosquito-prone area.
If traveling in scorching heat, remember to drink enough water, use hats, sunglasses & UV lotions. Beware of the health effects that the mid-day sun may cause, most importantly SUN BURN or DEHYDRATION.
If you need to see the doctor ask Adventure Hub Nepal You’ll find plenty of helping hand. Most of the towns and villages in Nepal have pharmacies and chemists if you want to purchase any medical supplies. The medication and the fees for the doctors are usually low.
Adventure Hub Nepal recommend having your own small first aid kit for the trip, although you can find most modern medicines in the drugstores of Nepal, they can be named differently and come with a different level of dosage. Carry a health kit and include medications for upset stomachs, some antiseptic cream, mosquito repellent, sun block, band-aids, gastro, etc.
