Safety in the Terai

At this particular moment in time, Nepal should be glad that there are no iconic tourist attractions except Chitwan in the Terai. OK, people can correct me... there is Lumbini, Bardia, Janakpur etc... but they are not an attraction to the level of Chitwan....

Thankfully, Chitwan is not affected by the unrest in the Terai as much as other areas, so tourists can still go there. This must be a blessing for the several hundred entrepreneurs who have their investments there.

hence ADVISORY: Chitwan is still unaffected (at least not that much) by the violence in the Terai, so you can still travel there. Get some local information though, there could be a strike or two along the way, which might delay you.
