The Foreign Ministry issued a travel warning Tuesday to Nepal in light of the devastating earthquake that left thousands dead and many more injured.

The aftermath of the natural disaster also destroyed numerous villages, communities and homes, leaving scores of survivors without residences or shelter.

Numerous challenges still lay ahead in the wake of such devastating circumstances, including shortages of medicine and medical services, irregular food supplies and some areas affected by contaminated drinking water. 

The Foreign Ministry advises that all these factors be taken into consideration for those who plan to travel or extended their stay in Nepal, and recommend that they reconsider their decision.
