Traveling During Civil Unrest

by corlieschong

I plan to arrive in country on the 29th of December. I understand the most recent strike (bandht) shut down the nation for 3 days, all travel, businesses were shut down along with demonstrations in the capital. I plan to spend most of my time in Pokhara, but will be in Kathmandu for a few days. Any insight from those that have traveled during periods of unrest is appreciated. Thanks.

If there is a strike on wherever you are you will be stuck there until it is over. But stay away from any demostrations.

OK – I was in Nepal at the height of the political problems in 2006 and the main thing is that I Always felt Safe and never even once felt threatened !!
However – Transportation can be a Big issue during Bandha’s
But the airport is rarely affected – The Government put on busses from the airport to Thamel so you shouldn’t have a problem there – Also you can usually get an internal flight to Pokhara – However you might have to walk from the airport to your hotel once there but the airport in Pokhara is only a short distance from Lakeside where most travellers to Nepal stay – Maybe a 1/2 hour walk !!
Whilst in Kathmandu during the Bandha you should still be able to hire a cycle – It is a Great time to bike around Kathmandu and the valley as the roads will be traffic free
Good Luck
Rob

Totally agree with Into-Thin-air. I was there in 2005 Oct,Nov,Dec when they had a 3 month cease-fire in place but still had strikes in Kathmandu but felt very safe.

Travel Tips for Kathmandu

Hinduism/Buddhism

by nepalgoods

In Nepal and specially Kathmandu Hinduism and Buddhism exist peacefully together. At every corner you find temples of Shiva or Buddha.

For a big Shiva Temple you should go to Pashupatinath, where there are also places for burning the dead. As a tourist you are not allowed to enter the temple itself.

For big Buddhist temples I recommend Boudanath.

Both places are not far from Kathmandu.

Cremation

by Flipboy

Locals in Nepal Cremate the bodies of their dead. Along the river you will see this being done and the air will be filled with the smoke from the fires. Its quite an experience since most western cultures practice private death ceremonies and here it is in the city centre with man people hanging around.

Nice shopping - But Bargain

by XKuger about Thamel Area

I shopped from a number of shops in the Thamel area and bought different sovineer items.

The prices they quote are nowhere near what you expect to pay. You can bargain them down. All prices have this bargaining factor in built into them so if you pay the sticker you will definitly be ripped off. There are a number of things that you can buy.

- Fantastic Thenka paintings
- Handicrafts ( fine metal work)
- Wood carvings
- Prayer wheels Remember there are number of shops and you can ask around and once you know the going price start the negotataion. Usually you can retuce it by at least 30% to 40%.

Shipping small things out of Kathmandu - DHL

by Saagar

Sometimes, especially when working or studying or on an around the world you may want to ship some papers home. For this you do not use the postal system, it may not be reliable or fast enough. DHL is the thing, and they are well represented in Nepal. Even from town to town in Nepal you can use them. Expensive, naturally, but reliable.

Very conveniently, DHL has a Thamel office in addition to the country office up in Naya Baneshwor.

Where locals (and some tourists) dine!

by WaRPer about Aroma Restaurant

Located on the rooftop of a small building just off the corner from the huge intersection, Jamal, overlooking the queen's pond. The restaurant offers great-taste meals at decent price. They serve Nepali, Indian, Tibetan, and Chinese food, with a wide variety to choose from. The view from there is good for traffic-watching, I mean if you can handle all that honks!! I had mushroom roup and a HUGE chicken fried-rice as my main dish.
