When did LGBT Gay and Lesbian travel in Nepal start?

Nepal’s journey in accepting LGBTQIA+ has been quite a revolution. The government established the rights of LGBT people after the amendment of the new constitution. The Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation & the Nepal Tourism Board {NTB} 2007 declared to support the LGBT tourism program. Since then, many gay and lesbian couple have enjoyed their time in Nepal.

Nepal’s government has been organizing programs for the LGBT community in Nepal. The Supreme Court has a guarantee to protect the rights of the LGBT community. Although Nepal has been a democratic country, the rights of sexual minorities have come a long way. But, in the present context, Nepalese people have become more open about these things.

They respect everybody’s choice of sexual orientation. That’s why people from the LGBT community have been traveling to Nepal to enjoy the natural beauty. They are going for Gay and lesbian travel. They participate in adventurous activities such as hiking, trekking, climbing, rafting, pilgrimage, culture, food, etc.

Like in any other country, you can freely enjoy LGBT rights in Nepal. Above the Himalayas, we give a special welcome and arrange Gay and lesbian travel. As a travel company, we have been trying to improve people’s understanding of LGBTQ.

Earlier, many gays and lesbians people who love traveling could not travel the world. They could not enjoy it because of their choice of sexual orientation. Now they can travel around the world like everybody else. Nepal is one of the few countries in Asia that have been encouraging and promoting gay and lesbian travel.

Different packages

Many travel companies are adding gay and lesbian travel packages. People can travel to Nepal with their loved ones. We offer different package deals for LGBT travelers. You can travel in a group with your friends or with your partner. You can choose a suitable package that suits your needs. You can add more places to your package and extend your travel.

LGBT events in Nepal

Different organizations organize many events to educate people about LGBT. Pride event takes place every year. People celebrate the sexual orientation of every individual. NNepal’spride, March Day, falls on 29 June. During Gay and lesbian travel, people come together. They launch a parade in the streets of Kathmandu.

Another big event occurs between August and September. The Blue Diamond Society organized a program on the day of Gai Jatra. People celebrate this day by wearing colorful clothes and makeup. They dance, sing on the street, and celebrate love. People roam around and demand equal respect for gays and lesbians.


After the global pandemic, Covid-19 hit the entire world, so you must get the vaccination. The Nepal government needs you to vaccinate before you conduct any tourism activity. It would help if you were fully vaccinated before you arrive in Nepal.

In addition, you should carry a vaccination card as proof. A vaccination card is essential to go to any public place. Also, people doing Gay and lesbian travel in Nepal should have received routine vaccinations. They need immunization for measles, mumps, chickenpox, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, etc.


Tips are the general way of saying thank you. Remember that tipping is voluntary. You give it if services are good in your Gay and lesbian travel. Generally, people offer tips at the end of their trip. All members contribute to the tip if you are a traveling in-group.

Furthermore, you can tip for guide and porter as per your wish. Usually, people tend to provide 5% to 10% tips. People do not expect tipping everywhere in Nepal. There is no compulsion for tipping.
