The infection figures in Nepal are at a very low level. The omicron wave is already behind Nepal. It was less long and less pronounced than in Europe or America.
Most of the population in Kathmandu is vaccinated; in the Everest region, as many as 98% of those over 18 are reported to be vaccinated, and a large proportion of residents in other trekking regions are also vaccinated. Likewise, many people working in tourism are vaccinated. Also, all guides, assistant guides, and cooks of Trekadviser team are fully vaccinated. The vaccination rate in Nepal is 73.9% among the fully vaccinated. The number of recovered people seems to be very high, in Nepal they sometimes talk about 90%.
In Kathmandu and larger towns, a mask is worn in busy places (e.g., Pashupatinath etc.) and in supermarkets. In less crowded places in the cities and trekking regions mask wearing is not compulsory. Trekadviser will adjust programs in Kathmandu to avoid larger crowds.
