Nepal recently held its first phase of local level elections after 20 years gap. The election is one of the main priorities of the new constitution that was promulgated in 2016.
The voting was peacefully held in 3 out of 7 provinces on 14 May, 2017, which was actively participated by many Nepalis. The second phase of local level election in other provinces will take place on 14 June. BBC reported that nearly 20,000 women are standing for election in the first phase.
People are optimistic that the election will bring decentralization and democracy to in the country. Increasing levels of hope and euphoria for political stability, economic growth and development is palpable among Nepalis across the country.
With political stability, like every other economic activities, Nepali tourism too is poised to grow stronger in the coming days. The resilience of Nepali people is such that they have overcome the impact of earthquake and Indian economic blockade. Langtang Trekking trail which was badly damaged by the earthquake is once again open for tourists and trekkers.
The number of tourist arrival has dramatically gone up since 2015 and will hopefully surpass previous figures in 2017.
