Barbara Adams will be cremated at the Pashupati Aryaghat on Monday.
According to Barbara Peace Trust, her body will be kept on the premises of Nepal Academy from 9 to 11 am for well-wishers to pay their final tributes.
Adams passed away on Friday evening just a few days shy of her 85th birthday. She was undergoing treatment at Grande International Hospital in Dhapasi for abdomenal ailment.
Born an American citizen in New York on 24 April 1931, Adams had first visited Nepal as a journalist to cover the Nepal visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1960 and decided to stay. Nepal, for her, was a second home where she dedicated her life in social works, tourism promotion and environment conservation.
For the last few years, Adams had been involved in a campaign to build hoses for landless and squatters in the Far West.
