Before you give into this report ask yourself how legit this site itself is. I am a Nepalese myself so obviously I might be a little biased, but if I had nothing good to say I would say nothing. The report says that India is safer than Nepal? I don't believe that's true. Nepalese people are very honest people. They love foreigners. For them its comparable to a Americans seeing an elephant walk down the road. Yes the country is very poor and people have indulged in corruption, but the simplicity of the peaceful life in the hills will slow you down and bring you down to earth. Kathmandu is a squatter city but if you figure out the amazing jingle that lingers in the crowd, you'll love it for all it's worth. If you planning to go to Nepal, please do. Our country is one of agriculture but our highest source of income is Tourism. There's plenty to do there. Enjoy it. :-)

Seriously? I went to Nepal last year and it was nothing like how its described here. I had never been to Nepal before even if my mother was born there. I read these kinds of articles and they are very misleading.I absolutely loved it there. The people there were so nice and caring. They didn't make me feel like a outcast even if I knew NO Nepali what-so-over. Yes, there are some problems there but what country doesn't have problems? And yes, Nepal is poor but doesn't mean the country is bad.
The political party have NOTHING to do with how anyone will be treated by the people there.
Should you wear your expensive jewelry and walk on busy streets? I would advise not. Just because some people there are bad doesn't mean the whole country is.
