The US, the UK, Australia and Canada generated travel alert in Nepal

Published on : Thursday, November 7, 2013

NepalTravel alert has been generated for the citizens traveling to or living in Nepal of several countries including the US, the UK, Australia and Canada during the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) election scheduled for November 19.

According to the UK government officials the political situation in Nepal is changeable. There are frequent bandhs (shutdowns), rallies and demonstrations, which can be violent and cause widespread disruption.

Almost all five-star hotels in Kathmandu have revised down their November occupancy forecasts as tourists have started canceling their planned trips to Nepal with the CA election approaching.

Tourism of Nepal will suffer badly in this peak season. November is the peak tourist season in Nepal when arrivals reach more than 83,000 monthly. The country welcomed 803,092 tourists in 2012 which directly contributed Rs 30 billion to the country’s foreign exchange reserves.

The Nepal Tourism Board(NTB) will adopt necessary measures to ensure adequate safety of the tourists. NTB said it would issue passes for tourist vehicles so that they can travel without hindrance. However, overland tourists will be affected on election day as all the border points will be sealed from the evening of Nov 18 to Nov 20.

One Response to The US, the UK, Australia and Canada generated travel alert in Nepal

  1. Vimal K Thapa says:

    I think, its normal for the country to provide the information for the safety of their citizens but the international media does make it sound worse than what actual fact. Yes there are peaceful rallies these days for promoting the voting by different political parties. Agree that its bit short slightness of the government and politician,. this activity is going in mid tourist season here but so far the crowds of tourist are still flooding in the trekking areas of the mountains and many hotels area out of space..they are all enjoying this time and hence its possible to travel to Nepal without much of problems…tel me where or which country does not have the problems of any kind..there is always..
    So traveling to Nepal is very much possible without much of problems and its time when Nepal needs support from our international communities..which is there and hope will be always there..
