"Consider face mask in Kathmandu and during trek" Pollution Tip by poledi
Pollution, Nepal: 5 reviews and 2 photos
KTM is one of the most polluted cities in the world, similarly to Mexico City. In my opinion face masks when walking on the streets in the traffic peak is highly recommended.
Face mask is essential during the trek as during the trekking season (I was trekking in April) the air and soil on and along the trekking trails is very dry, polluted with animals' excrements so it's better to use the mask rather than breath without it.
Every member of my trek group experienced infections mostly because of nasty things they inhaled.
