Nationwide strikes expected in Nepal over next few weeks

The opposition parties in Nepal have called nationwide strikes to protest the government’s plans to draft a constitution without their consultation and agreement. Nationwide strikes, or “bandhs”, are planned for the next few weeks leading up to the drafting of the constitution. Travellers may encounter limited transportation and closed shops and businesses. Check with your tour company for information about schedules. Avoid large public gatherings and protests since even peaceful protests can quickly and unexpectedly become violent.
