From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Though prostitution in Nepal is illegal, thousands of prostitutes work in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. There are a number of massage parlors in Thamel, a tourist area of Kathmandu, where sex for money is easily available. Girls can be easily picked up from dance bars in Kathmandu. Another form of prostitution is in cabin restaurant where clients go and drink with girls, afterwards clients pick out a girl and leave.


Human trafficking

Nepal is currently the largest "sending country" for human trafficking in India. Nearly half of all Mumbai's sex workers working in brothels are from Nepal. It is estimated that more than 150,000 rural women and children are trafficked to Indian brothels and cities alone for commercial sex.
