Nepal

Overview

After the catastrophic earthquake that struck the country in 2015, killing thoUSAnds and destroying hundreds of thoUSAnds of homes, as well as historical sights and vital infrastructure, Nepal has endured great hardship. But Nepal is getting back on its feet, successfully reconstructing homes and roads and restoring important temples and monuments, and as a travel destination, the country has lost none of its appeal, none of its charm, and none of its magic. With unrivaled trekking and climbing in some of the world’s most stunning settings, vibrant and colourful cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara and Patan, and abundant historical and spiritual sights, there are few better and more rewarding places to explore. Keep in mind also that money well spent by travellers in Nepal is money that helps to rebuild and preserve the future of the country for locals and visitors alike.
