Nepal's bouncing back!
In April 2015 a devastating earthquake struck the country of Nepal causing nearly 9,000 deaths and injured 20,000. The impact on the country’s economy was huge, with tourism dropping by a third and its capital and biggest city Kathmandu, one of the worst affected areas.
The good news is, Nepal is bouncing back! Many holiday companies are proclaiming a significant rise in bookings for Nepalese adventures such as Treks to Everest Base Camp, exploring Sagamartha National Park and walking in the Annapurnas. With 8 out 10 of the world’s highest mountains, it’s no wonder that Nepal’s draw remains strong. Some operators are even adding trips due to demand from agents, which many believe is down to the amount of awareness raised in the proceeding periods after the disaster.
Clearly the pull of Nepal's landscapes, culture and people is too strong, so with tourism now soaring, we’ve selected our favourite ways for you to explore this awe-inspiring country and leave your mark on its recovery and rebuilding process.
