Help Rebuild Nepal by Traveling to Nepal!
As most of you are aware that Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on 25 Apr 2015 and followed by a number of severe aftershocks that took the lives of more than 8000 people, injured thousands more and destroyed hundreds of thousand houses, trekking trails and monuments including centuries-old palaces and temples listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Despite damages to some of its historical and cultural monuments and trekking trails, life is returning to normalcy now. Nepal is now ready to welcome tourists. Some of the monuments in the heritage sites that were closed aftermath of the earthquake are now open for tourists. Roads and air transport are in full operation across the country; the majority of hotels and restaurants are in operation. There is no shortage of food supplies, water and health services. There is no epidemic outbreaks as of yet and we hope it will not happen as Nepal government and international agencies are on high alert.
Most trekking trails, except the Manaslu and Langtang were affected very less. So, trekking can be undertaken in Annapurna, Everest and other areas which are declared safe. Except some damages to Durbar Squares of Kathmandu Valley, other destinations such as Chitwan National Park, Bandipur, Pokhara. Lumbini and Bardia National Park were not affected. There are many other beautiful and alluring cultural and natural sites in the West, Mid-West, Far West and East Nepal that await tourists to welcome there. Out of 75 districts of Nepal, only 14 districts are damaged by the disaser. Apart from Langtang, Manaslu and Gaurishankar, other 14 national parks and conservation areas including Everest, Annapurna, Kanchanjunga areas remained unaffected or sustained very minor damages.
Nepal government calls the international travelers to visit Nepal and help Nepal as she is attempting to rise and stand proudly on her feet once again. We at Far & High Adventure Travel strongly echo Nepal Government’s call and support their rehabilitation and rebuilding efforts. 10% of the payment of any Nepal trip booked after 25 Apr 2015 will be donated to Nepal Government’s Prime Minister Disaster Relief Fund.
