The devastating earthquake that occurred on 25th April, 2015 and some major aftershocks followed by the quake has created the chaotic condition in Nepal; especially in the mid region including Kathmandu valley. Almost 9,000 people were killed and about 22,000 are injured out of which many will be living their life with some kind of disabilities. The international news went so fast and aggressively that indicated all Nepal has been in trouble and there are nothing left to see and the most its not safe at all to visit due to which we received many cancellation and booking even for next season has been cancelled; which in fact was not true. Nepal is still the same and people can trek with same scenario and enjoyment except for Langtang Valley Trekking which might take some time to recover.
After the quake, our clients have trekked to Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp trek, which are the famous trekking trial in Nepal. They were very much safe and happy to have the great view over the mountain hence this proves that the major trekking routes are still safe to trek. Now the Everest Trekking, Annapurna trekking, Manaslu trekking and all other except Langtang are been operating in regular basis.
Its natural that many tourists are found fearful and scared to travel in Nepal but at the sometimes some are interested to visit Nepal, help people in need by performing some sort of volunteer work and more. Looking at the interest of tourist, we have now modified some of our trekking routes and introduced volunteer tourism and volunteer trekking routes which in fact very useful as you can see the best part of Nepal and you also will be directly in touch with the feeling of people in Nepal, assisting them in various ways by counseling, rebuilding, construction and many more.
This is the 15 days holiday itinerary however you can add or minimize the days as well; this includes some volunteering works to rebuild the houses, schools, teach students play with them and find the ways to make them happy in top of all to bring the smile to the grumpy faces which happened due to earthquake. We have selected Dhading as the focused district as because this is one of the most affected district and its also beautiful in terms of flora, fauna and natural Himalaya sceneries.
The details of the itinerary, cost and the services have been provided in the details below. This is the best way to help Nepal when people are in need as because this gives job opportunity to the people, extra pair of hands for reconstruction through volunteer and promotes the local business as well.
