Just found out about this website created in response to the 'negative' FCO advice issued about travel to Nepal. www.nepaltraveladvice.com Bit confusing for those hoping to find out how 'safe' Nepal is, those of us who've been and encountered Maoists can't see what the fuss is about, yet the FCO advice errs on the side of caution (to the point of saying don't go there). I know there have been recent riots in Kathmandu and I'm not sure what the situation is like in rural areas at present. Anyone planning to travel there soon might like to look at the website in addition to the usual sources of information. Mods: if this is a sensitive subject right now, please move/delete this as appropriate.
