Nepali Royal Airlines (NRA) should be avoided at all costs. There is simply no price to pay for an airline which takes to the sky whenever it feels like it. Quite simply, their promise as the only airline to fly passengers direct to a country like Malaysia, is full of hot air. More often than not passengers are made to transit hours on end, and sometimes days.
In fact, a confirmed flight with a nine hour transit to Singapore or Thailand via Silk Air or Thai Airways -as opposed to an…Continue

Tourism year 2011
These days when I walk through the streets of Kathmandu I see foreigners with vermilion smeared on their forehead and garland around their neck. Sometimes I feel awkward and couldn’t help laughing.
