Shipping destinations in Nepal
You can technically ship to any where in Nepal you choose, although how your parcel gets to that recipient may vary. For example some shipping companies will ship to the country and use a contractor that is local and more familiar with the country to deliver it to the recipient. This is a common practice in many countries and with many shipping companies. Also, some of the more rural spots, such as mountain homes and villages, may not get direct deliveries to them. In these cases the recipient may be required to travel to a major city to pick up their parcel as opposed to it being delivered to their door step. It is best to check with your shipping company about the plan of action if you are indeed trying to ship to some of these more hard to get to spots in Nepal.
