Let's avoid to map highway = road since the routing software wont use this information.
If  road connect villages, indicate minimally highway=tertiary. If unpaved, add the tag surface=unpaved.

The appropriate one is highway = road, until it has been verified. If they are roughly two lane and long, then use highway = tertiary.

Hello,
You can tag the unpaved, but maintained roads between small villages as highway = tertiary. You can see the description inhttp://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Roads
Thanks,Megha





He, all,

        I read the instructions for tagging roads on Task

#1043.

        However, there is no tag for roads that fall between highway=secondary
and highway=track. What about the unpaved, but maintained roads between small
villages? These are roads that we might tag highway=unclassified in the U.S.
These roads often are (barely) two lanes. They're definitely larger than a typical
track.
        Do we tag those highway=secondary also?
