"Leave your shoes outside" Top 5 Page for this destination Nepal Local Custom Tip by Saagar

Nepal Local Customs: 161 reviews and 190 photos

  Shoes well parked
by Saagar

When invited to a home and asked to come in, leave your shoes before you cross the doorstep. Try to do so even if people ask you not to bother.
Shoes are both physically and ritually unclean.
If you know you will end up visiting many family homes, bring a pair of flip-flops.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
