Some useful information

Mountains

Unfriendly as in South East Asian countries, and unfair and hospitable as in Europe, so you should limit to say the locals you are tourists coming from somewhere, because instead the enthusiasm and sympathy with, you they will be able to take advantage of you. You could be the first objective of the bad guys. For example, if you want to ask for the directions, you should ask your hotel receptionist, police or the salesperson in the shops rather than ask the people who are standing or walking on the street. A map will be useful and safe thing for you when finding the road.

If you're on the road and the locals ask you something or want to help you with something, kindly refuse. Particularly, when they try to get acquainted with you, it is the germ of a robbery or fraud cases. For example, they might lead you to the secluded and quiet place then snatch or they ask you to contribute some money for the poor. Therefore, the best thing to do is to refuse and leave that place and go to secure areas such as supermarkets, shopping centers, entertainment areas, police station. Before traveling, you should check carefully police stations in the city or this area and the place where you plan to go on map. 

When going out, you shouldn't wear and bring valuable items as watch, gold, jewelry, expensive cameras. These items can be also stolen in the hotel (except for luxurious hotels). So you should not bring high valuable items, but if you want to bring or have brought, the best way is to place them at the front desk of the hotel or can be stored carefully in a room.

Avoid using ATM  at night, even during the day you should also be careful if you see the locals or someone wandering around there, you should stop intent on withdrawal. If you withdraw money at ATMs, you should note those around and shield your PIN carefully before withdrawing because of a few simple tips, you can lose all the money in the account.

Do not leave money in the back pocket or carry your purse in the back pocket because it is easy to lose.

Many famous landmarks are located in densely populated and poor areas where daily activities are difficult. So you should not come to these places alone, you should go in groups.
