"Dont leave home without a pocket torch" Kathmandu Packing List Tip by askhokhar

Kathmandu What to Pack: 6 reviews and 5 photos


Miscellaneous: Nepal is facing a severe power shortage, and as a result, power is not available for about 20 hours every day.

It depends on your luck whether your hotel has some back up power supply arrangement. It would be better if you carry a pocket torch AT ALL TIMES.. you never know if you will need to go to the washroom at night.

The shopkeepers often do not have any arrangement for backup power supply. However, it is often difficult to see their merchandise clearly even during daytime. So a pocket torch would be something you wont regret having carried with you.
