Terror and Tourists in Pokhara

Yes, the life goes on… in Nepali style…and in foreign style.

Despite all those bomb blasts and killings, it seems, life in Nepal turns into normalcy the day after… Take this example from Pokhara…The other day bombs exploded, civilians were injured…then the next day saw army folks painstakingly trying to defuse a fake bomb. Tourists were seen taking photos. And the days after tourists were enjoying the horsehide. They are still seen in this city of west Nepal riding horses…drinking beers and boating around the famous Phewa Lake.

Pokhara Feb 28 Bomb Disposing

Pokhara tourists horseriding....despite bomb fears...

Mar 1: Well, one exploded, the other was fake! So why stop the fun mission. After all, you are here to enjoy! That’s what these foreign tourists were thinking, my guess, while riding over horses on Wednesday in Pokhara’s Lake Side. Pic by Dinesh Regmi

  3. Unless this violence is stopped, sooner or later a tourist will be killed or injured. Bullets & Bombs have no brains and sometime harm untended victims.

    What will this do to the already failed economy of Nepal ?
