Update on the Tourism Restrictions in Nepal
Yeah so the restrictions and visa cancellations were tough and many tourists had to evict from Nepal because of the pandemic. This notice really bugged us out.
But as of October, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal allowed all international flights to and from the country. So that has left many tourists quite confused about whether the trekking and traveling adventures have actually resumed in Nepal- to which I'd like to say YES!
With the resuming of flights and open borders, tourists have started entering Nepal and the tourism industry has had a restart. Although there are precautional measures set into place everywhere from preflight tests to post-flight distancing measures, many top travel and tour operators in Kathmandu believe the tourism industry is healing again. And since October is the best month for visiting Nepal, numerous agencies such as Royal Mountain Trekking and MSN Travel & Tours @ https://msntraveltours.com have begun offering exclusive deals on treks and trip packages with health and safety measures included.
Since the Tourism Industry is one of the biggest contributors to the national economy, the hopes are still there that the failed Tourism Year 2020 would bring a few tourists at the end of the year.
Anyways, thanks for the update on visa suspensions and flight restrictions. Hopefully, the situation comes under control asap.
