FAQs

Do I need a travel adaptor for the plug sockets in the hotel in Kathmandu?

The voltage in Nepal is 220v/50Hz like in the UK although please note that in U.S.A/Canada 110-120 Volts is used. However these days most modern electrical appliances are built to be compatible with all worldwide voltages.

The electrical sockets in Nepal are one of two types: the most common being the European two pin plug and also in some places the Indian three-pin plugs is also used. It is possible to recharge your electronic items and batteries for a small cost at most of the trek lodges in Everest, Annapurna and Langtang regions of Nepal.

To ensure you are prepared for both of these possible sockets in Nepal we recommend that you purchase a universal travel adaptor, it is also worth getting one with surge protector as this will protec your electronics from voltage spikes quite common in Nepal especially during load shedding.
