Nepal: Langtang National Park and the Maoists on going to Nepal's Langtang National Park. “While the Maoist’s People’s War had ravaged Nepal’s countryside for over ten-years and I’ve lived and visited various placed across the country, I hadn’t really every met a Maoist. I’d seen there banners, received orders not to go to certain destinations under Maoist fiat, and been banned from buying a pressure rice cooker under suspicion that I’d build a bomb on Army fiat, but never had a face-to-face encounter.”
