The Terai has problems.....

The southern belt of Nepal is a flatland called the Terai, and since the maoists went overground, some outfits here went underground... calling for Terai Liberation... if you ask me, i am not sure what exactly these guys want anyways, except that in an environment of political confusion, there is bound to be elements who want to benefit from it... personally, I think it is only this....

But the local populace are troubled all the time, according to this report on The local 'liberation' outfits abduct people, extort money, and roam about. Its pretty lawless down there.

I should not say this, but I am glad these troubles are not hitting any of the tourism areas... needless to say, tourism could expand in other areas too, if these stupidities can be controlled.
