A local mountain guide strike could directly impact Nepal’s tourism industry.
Last Friday’s avalanche at Mount Everest killed 13 Sherpas and now the guides are refusing to work under such dangerous conditions.
Nearly 1,500 Sherpas, or mountain guides, work across the Himalayan Mountain range.
Tourism generated $39.1m dollars in 2013 and attracted just under 800,000 visitors to the country.
