US cancel travel warnings for Nepal

US flagThe US Department of State has cancelled its travel warning for Nepal.

Travel warning was issued on October 8 last year, citing geological instability following the earthquake and the monsoon season, unrest in the Tarai region and fuel crisis.

Issuing a statement on Tuesday, US Embassy in Kathmandu said that the travel warning was lifted “because conditions have changed”. With the end of blockade and the effects of the earthquake no more in the country, Nepal’s tourism sector is set to be restored.

According to World Travel and Tourism Council, Nepal’s travel and tourism sector directly generated 487,500 jobs in 2014, representing 3.5 percent of the total employment in the country.
