How is this country's ability to cater for vegans/vegetarians/celiac?
India and Nepal are culturally and agriculturally diverse countries and so there will be a wide variety of dishes for both vegetarians, vegans and celiacs to try. Meat is not commonly eaten in many places in India and the typical diet caters well for vegetarians. Please do let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements so we can inform our team and guide so they can help you order.
I have allergies, will these be catered for?
Yes, however please make sure our happiness team is aware of your allergies before you arrive so that we can inform the right people on the adventure and make sure to pack any medications you may need.
Is it safe to drink the tap water?
We strongly advise you not to drink tap water in India or Nepal unless it is boiled or you have purifying tablets. However, tap water is safe for cleaning teeth and personal hygiene. When buying bottled water check the seal of the bottle has not been broken.
All Flashpackers will be provided with bottled of mineral water during the trip.
I don't drink alcohol, will this trip be full of drinking? What options will I have instead?
No, this is not a boozy trip at all. Alcohol consumption is as per the individual’s choice, there are plenty of options available of non-alcoholic beverages.
