Tourism Industry & Hotel Kaze Darbar: After the Earthquake & Trade Blockade

2015 was a very bad year for Nepali tourism. The country saw a sharp decline in the number of tourists after the Great April 25th Earthquake. The situation was further compounded by the Indian blockade and protests in the Terai-region. About 50 percent tourists were estimated to have cancelled their trips to Nepal after the natural disaster and political conflict.

As a landlocked nation, Nepal imports all of its petroleum supply and other important stuff from India. Shortage of fuel, medicine, and other supplies crippled the normal lives of people. Inability to get gas supplies for cooking compelled people to starve for many days and forced many businesses to shutdown.

However, the situation has normalized now. Reconstruction of heritage sites has started, even at a very slow pace. Tourism activities are growing and we are receiving more reservations from local and foreign travel agencies, and individual tourists through online booking sites like expedia, agoda, and etc.

Earthquake in Nepal

We were still reeling from the impact of last month’s devastating earthquake when another big temblor jolted the country three days ago. On 25th April, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal at 11:56 am on a Saturday.The epicentre was Barpark VDC of Gorkha District, about 80 kms northwest of Kathmandu. Two weeks later another 7.3 magnitude earthquake with an epicentre near Mount Everest struck the nation, which has revived fresh fears among the Nepalis.

The two quakes have so far claimed over 8,500 lives and injured 15,000 more (as per today’s news). They have been called the deadliest earthquakes in the Nepal’s history since the Great Earthquake of 1934.

The earthquakes have flattened many historical monuments, government buildings, and residential houses in the valley and reportedly affected 30 out of 75 districts across the country.

Hundreds of people are staying in temporary shelters and open grounds. Government, private parties, civil citizens, individuals, and NGO/INGOs are working hard to reach out to the affected people.

Meanwhile in Kaze Darbar, we have put up some tents in the garden for hotel guests and neighbors. We’re fixing minor cracks in some rooms and planning for repair work soon. After such big tragedies, we feel fortunate that all our staff at Hotel Kaze Darbar and their family members are safe.
Though difficult, we’re trying our best to run our business. And this would not have been possible without the support of our staffs.
