Should I tip the staff?
Yes please!  At the end of your retreat or training, we will put out a basket for all tips that the hardworking staff will share equally. If you have been happy with their service, we recommend tipping a minimum of $10 or more.

Do I need a visa?
To travel Nepal you will need visa. Either you can apply from your home country or you can get upon arrival. If you plan to get it upon arrival in Nepal please make USD 25 cash and 2 photos handy, this is for 15 days.

Do I need travel insurance?
We require all teacher training students to have travel insurance covering their trip to Nepal. Apart from checking for quotes online, you may also wish to check with your travel agent. If you are with a Credit Union in the UK they usually supply travel insurance at competitive rates for their clients. Whatever option you take please make sure to obtain travel insurance before you leave your home country and please provide us with a print out of your details upon arrival.

Are toiletry products easily available?
Local shops have a wide range of products available. Shower gels, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, shavers etc are widely available and you should buy them here if you wish to save and travel light ( unless you ahev your particular brand). Any pharmaceutical items you may wish to buy are usually available here and about a third of the price. There are some great natural Ayurvedic products available too. However, we advise you to buy your sunscreen in your home country. Sunglasses in Nepal are not of a high standard unless you buy designer ones, so you should consider bringing a couple of pairs from home. May be good idea to visit some shops / ATms in Thamel or Bhaktapur area before you come to Nepal Yoga retreat center.
