In the latest news straight from Kathmandu, our Nepali sources write that most people in the country have grown wary of the unrest and now rally behind the King's recent resolute measures to bring the country to peace:

"Various political, religious leaders, intellectuals and business community among others have welcomed the Royal Proclamation by the King as a historic step to protect the nation. They have asked all countrymen to unite in support of the King's historic move to end the current violence and political turmoil prevalent in the country."

Buses to tourist destinations have run smoothly

As for travel to Nepal, we got this:

"This is to inform all that the current situation in Nepal is safe for tourist/trekkers to visit and trek to Nepal. The public vehicles, national and international flights have also resumed their scheduled services from the very next day (Feb 2, 2005)."

"Likewise, buses to tourist destinations like Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini have run smoothly. And, the travel industry has shown consolidated enthusiasm to entertain all the tourists coming over to Nepal with greater vigour and warm hospitality and the upcoming high season of tourist arrival from India and other major markets is at the threshold."

"Now onwards, tourists can plan their holidays to Nepal without any hindrances as strikes and bandhs have become past phenomenon."

Pack your bags guys, the mountains are waiting in all their glory.
