Kathmandu is absolutely safe and life is normal here. There was big media hype about Earthquake and its impact on Nepal. Yes we had unfortunate destruction however its actual impact analysis went wrong due to media and their publicity stunts. We had damage on Kathmandu Durbar Square area (Old City only) however rest all other places & heritage Sites had minimum and very low damage. UNESCO Sites like Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, Harati Devi Temple, Bhaktapur, Patan are open for any foreign tourists and you can visit this place and also had very less damage. 100% Hotels are in operations, no disease breakout, Hospital & health facilities all in adequate condition, 95% roads safe and all major road linking Capital & other tourist destination had no impact of earthquake. In addition to that Nepal & security condition is 1000% safe.

Nothing to worry about to travel in Nepal. You can plan for your Holidays. Actually Nepal needs you & your support to rise again. If you wish to HELP NEPAL – CHOOSE NEPAL FOR YOUR VACATION. It is just the over-hyped and wrong media reporting about Earthquake had impact Nepal's tourism economy more than the pain of Earthquake itself.

Remember Nepal is famous for Natural beauty, landscape, Himalayan ranges & its old tradition. These highlights are as it is. We have people travelling with us post-Earthquake and they had posted their feedback on the same. You can search to understand actual ground reality. October is the best season to travel in Nepal.

There's been so much upgrading here in Nepal and rebuilding it's made Nepal better. The roads are better,  building codes are being enforced and corruption seems to be down. We have a constitution and laws to protect children, women and the way of life here. So, a November 2018 check in-the palace is finished and open to the public, there is building everywhere and the homes are being built back with the same archetecture, but built to withstand another earthquake. 
If you are doing international travel I hope you are considering Nepal. It's a great budget location, safe for women with a respectful police force and tourist-friendly government. Low crime against tourists and so beautiful everywhere. You don't have to climb Mt. Everest to see how beautiful Nepal is. The country is still healing from the earthquakes and tourism is one of the largest industries. So, if you want a vacation of a lifetime Nepal is a great pick.

Hi there,

I am a local of Kathmandu and I can say for sure that KTM is safe. The Monsoon would have been a worry if you were travelling now, but since you are travelling in October, it will be long over by then.

Most of the hotels (if not all) in Kathmandu are still operating and are good condition. Regarding your concern over food and water, there is nothing to worry about.

Cheers !!

There was a news item, yesterday, in India, saying that there was a landslide near the Annapurna circuit, a hiking route, which was triggered by the heavy showers of the current monsoon season due to the displacement of soil during the earthquake. The news item also mentioned that over a 2 million people are still homeless all over Nepal. The monsoon season should be over before October.

A friend living in Kathmandu said that life's back to almost normal there, but not outside the city of Kathmandu. This might give you some perspective

http://reliefweb.int/sites/reliefweb.int/files/resources/Nepal%20External%20Situation%20Report%20%2313%20-%2007.15.15.pdf

I also remember reading a news item, 3 days ago, about an Indian car manufacturer launching a new car in the Kathmandu market so I'm taking this to be an indication of life being normal there.

I'm not too sure if this answer helps you any, but it's current news so I'm sharing.

Dear Gita, Yes the landslide was in Lumle the way to Syangja from Pokhara. The road is already cleared with vehicle movement. Nepal being Hilly country during monsoon period landslide occur. However this incident can not determine the overall current situation. Every year we face this. I hope same in India especially on similar landscape. We are really concerned about the news like 2 millions still homeless but it is not true. May be the news or the donor have another publicity stunts for their own benefits. Hope you understood. True and rightly you understood that now market back to normal and everything is in order. Similar to car launch other activities are also going on. Hence you can make out the actual condition. Being a local our main concern is wrong message and analysis of impact and condition of Nepal post earthquake.

Hi Kishor, It's really nice to read your reply, you're right about publicity stunts, never know whom to believe, but when commercial enterprises initiate new business, you're convinced that things are much better than said otherwise.
