    Corrupt Police

    Nepal, in specific Kathmandu, is loaded with very corrupt police (the military police were far less corrupt than the Kathmandu city police). There have been stories of police scamming tourist due to mandatory bribery and even in some cases black-male. Be aware and alert, especially while in Kathmandu!

    A special unit of the Nepal Police called Tourist Police deals with problems related to tourists. One can contact the Nepal Tourism Board, Bhrikutimandap (Tel: 256909) to avail the services of Tourist police.

    Check Points

    Check points are what you see all over the country. They ask for stop beforehand and say thank you afterwards. They are friendly to tourists. It's just very weird to see.
