KATHMANDU (TIP): Nepal will grant free visas to visitors from neighbouring China as the Himalayan nation seeks to rebuild its tourist industry after two devastating earthquakes in April that killed nearly 9,000 people. The first of Nepal’s tremors struck during the peak of the tourist season, forcing thousands of visitors to flee early while thousands of others cancelled. China – the second-largest source of tourists to Nepal – was one of several countries that subsequently warned their citizens to stay away. (AP)
