Because of diverse ethnic groups and traditional beliefs, Nepal has numerous cultural practices that may appear unusual to a person on his/her first visit to the country. Do not feel offended if a Nepalese woman hesitates to give you a hand. Especially women, but greet you with "Namaste”, a gesture reminiscent of a praying position, in which the two palms are placed together. Below are some common Do's and Don'ts which may be helpful to every one who wish to visit Nepal.

Momo is a type of steamed bun filled with meat, vegetable, cheese etc. Momo has become a traditional delicacy in Nepal, Tibet and among Nepalese/Tibetan communities in Bhutan, Sikkim and Darjeeling.

Momos have now been spread to other foreign countries in places with a significant Nepalese and Tibetan diaspora.
