    Exclamation Dont fly to Kathmandu 10 November

    On Nov 10, the former rebels, who during their 10-year civil war in the past had repeatedly blockaded Kathmandu Valley, will repeat the feat, cutting off all the highways to and from the three districts in the valley.

    Along with that, they will also encircle the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu to prevent all flights and have urged all airlines to suspend flights that day.
    If you can possibly schedule your flights to avoid this, you will be much happier.

    Uh-oh. That's the day I'm supposed to fly in.
    Guess I'll be spending some extra time in Singapore until things blow over. If anyone has any advice or new news as this develops, it would be much appreciated...

    Anyone know if the Maoist's are planning to block the airport and valley just on the 10th or for an indefinite time thereafter?

    The maoist protest schedule says they will block the airport only on 10 Nov. They have other amusing activities planned for other days.

    But anything can happen - including nothing.

    Its now in the press that this blockage will not take place but that doesn't mean it still wont be difficult getting into the city if transport is disrupted.
