Ask permission before taking photographs in temples. Do not step over people’s feet or any other parts of their bodies. To sit with feet pointing at someone is insulting, especially toward a monk or llama. It is also insulting to pat children on the head.
The left hand should never be used for eating, handling food, shaking hands. However, presenting or accepting gifts is always performed with both hands.
One of the highest swings in the world is located in Nepal. Take a day-long trip outside Kathmandu to a bridge suspended above a scenic valley and experience the heart-fluttering drop down into the valley below.
Make sure to eat a traditional Nepali meal, and drink a cup of chai!
