Kathmandu, Sep 12 (ANI): The tourist industry in Nepal has been struggling to recover for more than one year after the country was hit by a devastating earthquake in April 2015. Tourism is the backbone of Nepal’s economy. After the earthquake, the industry’s recovery has been slow, and millions of people employed in the sector have been affected. Visitor numbers to the country remain below levels recorded before the quake. In Kathmandu’s bustling tourist district, more locals are seen than tourists these days. Shops, restaurants, streets are waiting for the usual tourist rush that Nepal sees in the month of September, which promises to bring a good tourist season.
