Nepal - Safe to Go Mid Oct? Earthquakes + Political Unrest

Jump to last reply

Hi,

I was all set to take a chance and go to Nepal with just the aftershocks and knowledge that some things would be damaged.

Was planning on going Mid Oct for 5 days in a few weeks. Simple quick visit - Kathmandu, couple nights, then try to get out for a quick trek and stay in mountain lodge or 2 (see the mountains, see some interesting little villages...) Pokhara area perhaps.

I just found out that there is a lot of unrest and protests because of the constitutional changes, which I guess were signed yesterday! 9/21/15. Reading newspapers and looking around I just can't really figure out if I should skip it. US dept of state recommendations and warnings are not very specific so not a ton of help in this case.

Anyone over there that can give me a clue if I should skip or go? I already will be near there in India so I can't change this to a later date for this trip.

If I can't go, any other ideas of how to get that mountain experience in India (Darjeeling?).

Thanks.

Chris
