Visas: All foreigners (except Indian nationals) require visas, which can be obtained in advance or on arrival.

Visas permit travel around the Kathmandu Valley, Pokhara and Chitwan National Park in the Terai. Trekking permits are required if you intend striking out from the main areas; they can be obtained from immigration offices in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
