Wherever you are your health and security are your responsibilities. In the city, area be aware of scammers and touts. Outside the airport, or on the road, taxis are likely to charge more than normal. Pickpockets are active in cities and also in the mountains. Even if you are an experienced trekker or have good health and stamina, you don’t know the mountains of Nepal and hence, it is wise to keep up with your guide and stay close with your group.
Valuable items like gold or diamond chains, rings, bracelets are best not carried to the mountains and also keep your day pack with you safe. Your passport, permits, phone, cameras are supposed to be with you all the time. Keep the money you carry safely and securely.
Don't try to get too close to the animals or go to extra lengths for the photos during your jungle safari, rafting, and also trekking times. It is expected and is also for your safety that you travel with responsibility and sensibility.
As long as you are respecting local norms and culture and are open-minded towards the local community, you will be treated well and respected regardless of what gender, religion, and culture you are from.
