Drinking Water in Nepal

Water is definitely one of the most indispensable human requirements. Sadly, a large fraction of the Nepalese populace is deprived of safe and adequate drinking water. Water available in the taps and river water is totally detrimental and unfit for drinking purpose. According to the department of water supply and sewerage in Nepal, it is claimed that an estimated 80% people get drinking water at their homes, but fatefully the water is noxious.

Travelers are bound to pick the best choice for drinking water, whether it is bottled water, boiled water or purified water by adding purification tablets. If, in any case, you choose to drink boiled water, make sure that the water is boiled for a longer time at higher altitudes. It takes a longer time to boil water at high elevations than at the sea levels. If you wish to buy bottled water, double check that the seal is intact and the top of the bottle has not been manipulated. It is very likely that some water sellers offering a low price for bottled water may have filled up the empty bottles with tap water. By and large, it is very significant to drink adequate quantity of water in Nepal to avoid any threats associated with dehydration.
