While in Nepal, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from what you find in the United States. Nepali law prohibits discrimination against persons who have physical and mental disabilities, including discrimination in employment, education, access to health care, and in the provision of other state services. The law mandates access to buildings, transportation, employment, education, and other state services, but these provisions generally are not enforced. In fact, Nepal’s poor infrastructure makes it impracticable in many cases for a mobility-impaired traveler to move around the country, both within the Kathmandu Valley and elsewhere. The government does not implement effectively or enforce laws regarding persons with disabilities. Except for a few clinics and hospitals, Nepal is severely lacking in accessibility and appropriate accommodation for individuals with disabilities.
