Cost of living

Not surprisingly, one can live very cheaply in Nepal. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, almost everything costs less in Nepal, including such goods and services as accommodations, transport, Internet, utilities, furniture and appliances, groceries, clothing, restaurants and recreation. The only item that appears to be more expensive than the international average is alcohol. The bottom-line is that Nepal is affordable and happily available to any western expat who is able to thrive in its’ rustic and exotic conditions.
