The prevalence of girl trafficking in Nepal is astounding. It is estimated that Between 7,000 and 10,000 girls, between the ages of 9-16, are trafficked each year from Nepal to India. More than 200,000 Nepalese girls are involved in the Indian sex trade.

Efforts to stop girl trafficking have been seriously constrained by both cultural taboos and the government's reluctance to address girl trafficking. The retired army personnel and the person who have worked in India are playing key role of girls trafficking of their own villages and surroundings. They also threaten NGO staff not to work, speak against girls trafficking. The Nepali government has ignored girl trafficking, while local villagers often pretend that it doesn’t exist.

Due to the clandestine nature of the girl trafficking industry, even international organizations (such as the United Nations, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International) have had difficulty in knowing the full scope of the trafficking of girls and women. The decade long conflict forced girls to migrate to cities in search of job, where most of the girls end up with sexual exploitation, mostly these girls engaged in carpet industry, dance restaurant, cabin restaurant, bars and domestic work, where these girls are highly prone to exploited sexually. Once they are used to it, they further add other girls of their own village to these professions.

Men, women and children are trafficked through Nepal for trafficking, exploitation and slavery (TES) inside the country and as well as in the international countries. Women, children and boys are trafficked within the country and to India and the Middle East for commercial sexual exploitation or forced marriage, as well as to India and within the country for involuntary servitude as domestic servants, circus entertainers, factory workers, or beggars.

NGOs estimate that 10,000 to 15,000 Nepali women and girls are trafficked to India annually, while 7,500 children are trafficked domestically for commercial sexual exploitation. In many cases, relatives or acquaintances facilitated the trafficking of women and young girls into sexual exploitation . For about 20,000 girls become involuntary domestic workers. Bonded labor also remains a significant problem, affecting entire families forced into labor as land tillers or cattle herders. Over one million Nepali men and women work abroad in countries other than India, which is, by far, the most popular destination for Nepali workers; many of them migrate willingly to Malaysia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, and other Gulf states with the help of labor brokers and manpower agencies to work as domestic servants, construction workers, or other low-skill labourers, and subsequently face conditions indicative of forced labor such as withholding of passports, restrictions on movement, non-payment of wages, threats, deprivation of food and sleep, and physical or sexual abuse.

Efforts to stop girl trafficking have been seriously constrained by both cultural taboos and the government's reluctance to address girl trafficking. There is a strong network of human trafficking people all over Nepal and specially focus in hilly region nearby highway in. The major victim groups are from disadvantages community and data shows more number from Tamang and Dalits (Untouchable Castes) community.

Once they are used to it, they further add other girls of their own village to these professions.
