All buildings should be traced.
If houses are clustered closed one to the other (more like usual hamlets or villages), trace a polygon around the houses with the tag landuse=residential.

A note on villages: many villages in Nepal are spread out. People in rural areas don't bunch their homes together. There can be as much as 500 ft between neighbors, but they all consider themselves part of a village. 

Hope this helps.

We might need some guidance on what constitutes a village for this purpose, for example, minimum number of buildings.

Let's avoid to map highway = road since the routing software wont use this information.

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 in
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Roads

Thanks,

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?
