It is always better to be in the know before you go to a new place. Here are a few apps that might help you when you travel to Nepal

When you travel to a new place it’s quite difficult to figure out what to do and where to go. Especially in a place like Nepal where there is so much to do and see. For instance you could take a mountain flight go hiking somewhere outside the valley. In an age where there’s an app for everything, here is a list of apps that would make your stay in Nepal more meaningful.


1. Welcome Nepal

Want to know about the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal with all the relevant information? This app gives you all. From activities related to travel and tourism to travel essentials you’ll get them here. What’s interesting is it gives you the contact details of relevant agencies in and outside Nepal.



2. Taxi fares Nepal

Going to a new place means you’ll be taking a lot of cab rides. And in Nepal that can be quite tricky and expensive as taxi drivers all over the world try to make some extra amount on tourists. This app helps you with the cab fare and rates between places and prevents you from getting cheated. It gives you a general idea of the  distance and how much it can cost you to get from point A to B. What’s nice about this app is it features data provided by the police traffic control and also has a map view.



3. nLocate

Don’t know where the nearest ATM, hospital or bank is? Well just like the name, nLocate helps you locate things nearby. I gives you directions and offers relevant information about the place or business. It can also store information online which makes it easier for tourists who are here for a longer tour.



4. Nepal Flights

Want to fly somewhere in Nepal without the hassle of going to a travel agent? Well Nepal Flights makes it easier to search and book domestic flights. It will give you choices and prices from all the domestic airlines. You can book flights to Pokhara, Biratnagar, Bharatpur, Bhairahwa, Mountain Flights and more.



5. Trekking in Nepal

It’s pretty obvious that you’ll get a lot of trekking information on the internet and guide books. But most of them aren’t quite as updated as this app. And there is definitely more to travel than ‘go here from there’. This placed based app gives a different narrative to traveling in Nepal. The app lets travelers recommend places and things for others to choose from and there is little scope for commercial tampering. Features like Deviation Alert, Avalanche and Rock fall alert and Climb Alert have been added to make it easier for travelers to be prepared and know what to look out for.
