Worst experience!!!
I was disappointed that the embassy staff asked that I send a pre-paid express mail label to expedite my passport shipment, and then, upon receiving it, sent the passport via standard mail anyway. It was not only a waste of money for me but the further delay may cause me to miss my flight to Nepal, in which case I would also have to pay re-booking fees with the airlines. Not to mention the headaches and changed plans. The entire process had been difficult--no one ever responded to my emails and or voice mails and the phone was often busy. Altogether a disappointing experience.

Gadhimai butchery
Please stop the so called Gadhimai festival. While it is fine to respect other cultures and traditions, it is also immoral to tolerate cruelty to animals. The sacrifice of 500,000 animals is inhumane and brutal. It also sends a very poor image of Nepal to people living in other countries. Please have compassion for the animals and stop this sacrifice.

Service review
Absolutely horrible service over the phone! Very rude. They need to employ more respectful staff.

Gadhimai Festival
I am writing to express my disgust with Nepal's inability to govern it's people and prevent a mass slaughter of animals for the purpose of a "festival". There is no God that looks down on this atrocity as good. Shame on Nepal and God bless the poor creatures who suffered so hideously at this governments' lack of of compassion.

Please stop the bruitality to animals
I am deeply shocked and horrified to see the images of immense cruelty and suffering inflicted upon many thousands of animals following the Gadhimai festival in Bara, Nepal on the 24-25 November 2009. Despite our letters appealing for this slaughter to be prevented, the Nepalese government have chosen to ignore these pleas and justify this mass cruelty towards innocent animals by allowing this slaughter to take place.

This unregulated slaughter is illegal under Nepalese laws and has caused immense suffering for the hundreds of thousands buffalo, pigs, chickens, rats, goats, and pigeons that have been slaughtered. It has also brought shame upon your country and your people.

The images of animal cruelty witnessed at the festival have been distributed worldwide and have seriously damaged the image of Nepal as a tourist destination for international visitors.

Traditions is no justification for this barbaric act, people both within Nepal and internationally are appalled at this atrocity and we urge you to work in conjunction with the festival organizers to prevent this from happening again.

Please enforce stronger animal protection laws to protect animals from this barbaric suffering and respectfully ask that the government embrace non-violent alternatives and end the slaughter of animals at future religious festivals.

As an international animal protection group that have always welcomed and supported the animal welfare progress in Nepal, particularly your recent ban on the export of macaques for research, we are horrified by this cruelty.

The images of animal cruelty witnessed at the festival have been distributed worldwide and have seriously damaged the image of Nepal as a tourist destination for international visitors.

Gadhimai Festival
Please help put a stop to this horrible masacre. This is very unsanitary, and most importantly very cruel and unnneccessary. This is really pathetic and gaurentee I wont be traveling to Nepal anytime in the future. Just disturbing, plain and simple.

Gadhimai Festival
PLEASE put a stop to the unnecessary and brutal slaughter of tens of thousands of animals to honor some goddess. The country of Nepal should be ashamed as a whole for allowing this to occur. And the potential for spreading of disease is very high with blood-borne disease and poor sanitation. Please use your authority to disallow these horrendous and inhumane practices. The world cannot stand for this kind of cruelty and the media has exposed this festival for its barbaric rituals.
