Feature Review

Always avoid drinking tap water directly. Do not also drink fountain drinks and ice cubes. Always drink bottled, boiled water or carbonated drinks in cans or bottles.

There have been cases of many fake bottled waters 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.

Do not eat 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 doctor, ask your host family, hotel or our country coordinator. 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.

Bring drugs you require with you. Although you can find most modern medicines in the drugstores of Nepal, they can be named differently and come with different level of dosage. Carry a health kit and include medications for upset stomachs, some antiseptic cream, mosquito repellant, sun block, band aids, etc.
