Even though some tourist areas and cultural heritage sites have been damaged, the Kathmandu Valley is alive and striving to get back on its feet, Nepal Association of Tour Operators (NATO) said in a statement.

"Roads and air transport links are intact across the country barring some landslips, while a majority of hotels and restaurants are back in operation. The Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu is operating smoothly," the statement said, adding, "While this unprecedented disaster has caused loss of life almost across the whole country and has damaged historical structures of cultural interest, it is worth noting that Nepal is still able to welcome tourists."

Ashok Pokharel, president of NATO, said the people of Nepal are born with a will to overcome adversity.
