One needs to be cautious while driving on any road. But in Nepal, drivers need to be even more careful due to erratic drivers, no respect for traffic rules and the narrow lanes. Navigating the mountainous terrain can be especially dangerous.
While the roads connecting the cities are fine, the motorways in other regions, especially highlands, are usually covered with gravel and are poorly maintained. They are also prone to frequent landslides. Tackling the pothole filled roads, hairpin turns on the mountains, steep climbs, and sudden appearance of cows and sheep on the road, calls for expert driving skills and an alert mind.
Driving can be particularly bothersome during the monsoons, which causes landslides and makes the roads risky and dangerous. In some regions, the roads might get blocked or washed away, and the repair work begins only after the rainy season ends.
In Nepal, the horn is used to signal right-of-way. Those who honk first, get way first! However chaotic the driving style may seem to an outsider, for the Nepalese, this is the way they get about.
