Electricity in Nepal

With the rapid development of infrastructure in Nepal, many hydro projects have been installed in Nepal to supply electricity in households of Nepal. Power outage in Nepal during the dry season is a big problem in Nepal but hotels and guesthouse in most of the places have power backup like generators and invertors for electricity supply. In Nepal the power voltage of 220-240 volts is supplied to power the appliances. Please be careful while plugging the device to the software the volt has to be adjusted. There are many things you need to consider before using your electrical appliances in Nepal.

  • Nepal’s Electricity is 220-240 Volts and 50 MHZ (some countries like U.S and Canada are 110-120 volts/60 MHZ).
  • In Nepal electric Plugs are of two or three round prongs and flat prongs are also available in multi-plugs and extension cords
  • If you are carrying your own hair dryer, electric shaver, curling iron, laptop computer or other electrical devices on your travels then you will need to obtain either a voltage adapter (electrical converter) or a plug adapter that adjust the flow of voltage.
  • We recommend to take adapter, converter and charger kit if you plan to carry electronic devices in Nepal. You can find these items in electronic store in Kathmandu as well. You can find electronic shavers, mobile chargers, hair dryers etc. in those store in Nepal.
  • Electricity flow is not smooth in Nepal. Electricity often goes off and on. Voltage fluctuation is very common and it is advised that you use an adapter with quality power surge protector to ensure any loss or damage to your device.
  • Nepal has not been able to produce enough electricity to meet the high demand, so in dry seasons there is power outage for hours but hotels, restaurants and stores have their power back up.
