600 tourists trapped in Sauraha floods

A police official from the District Police Office in Chitwan also confirmed to Xinhua that the tourists had been rescued and brought to safe areas.

Basnet said more than 60,000 homes were under water, mainly in the southern plains bordering India. Hundreds of tourists remain trapped in the hotels. At least 49 people were killed and 17 reported missing in various parts of the country in the past three days. One hotel owner said the elephants are being used to take the people to non flooded areas and airports. Numerous people being rescued from the hotels are tourists.

According to The Red Cross, 100,000 people have been affected by the floods and landslides. Power and communication has been cut off in many areas and emergency services have had a hard time accessing some places. Other roads remain blocked by the landslides, slowing down the rescue efforts.

According to the local hotel association, there were about 600 domestic and foreign tourists in Sauraha before the floods from nearby Rapti river entered the hotel rooms as a result of incessant rainfalls since Saturday evening.

The Chief District Officer and the Nepal Tourism Board were informed about the situation and asked for rescue operation.

Relief workers said 26 of Nepal's 75 districts were either submerged or hit by landslides after heavy rains lashed the mainly mountainous nation, home to Mount Everest and the birthplace of Lord Buddha.

Monsoon rains, which start in June and continue through September, are important for farm-dependent Nepal, but they also cause heavy loss of life and property damage each year.

The monsoon season causes floods in Nepal nearly every year.
