The first case of coronavirus was confirmed on January 23, 2020, in Nepal when a 31-year-old student, who had returned to Kathmandu from Wuhan in early January 2020. Nepal government then imposed a complete lockdown all over the country to control the pandemic in March 2020 to pay attention to the possibility of transmission of COVID-19.

All the tourism activities such as trekking, expedition, hiking, tours & travel were postponed, which has direct long term effect on the tourism of businesses of Nepal. The daily lives of mountain guides, workers, hotels, restaurants, and mountain people are directly affected.

Now, We have good news that Nepal has opened for all these tourism activities and an arrival visa will be granted at Kathmandu Airport. And We wish that we will revive soon and get tourists.

Wish to see you soon and get in touch if you need any further information.
