Packing List For Dummies

Dear Dummies,

If you don't already know, money can buy almost everything in this world. The coolest way to travel to Nepal is to bring yourself, money, passport, plane ticket and 5 passport photos (2 copies for visa and 3 copies for TIMS). Even passport photos can be taken at the instant photograph booth within the Tribhuvan International Airport. The only downside is that you may not be satisfied with the quality of the pictures. Everything else can be purchased in either Kathmandu or Pokhara. If you still need guidelines on items to pack, below are some really stupid suggestions to consider.
