The Best Way to Help Nepal Recover From the Earthquake = Go There on Vacation
“We are pleased to inform you that Nepal is now safe to travel!!! “Life is back to normal.”
Green Valley Nepal Treks teams & our property are safe where we are locating.
If you have already booked your holiday or you are planning to, Green Valley Nepal Treks welcome you with an open heart.
The 7.9-magnitude quake laid waste to large swaths of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu (including several iconic heritage sites) and entire villages across the countryside have been flattened, but companies and officials alike insist visiting the country is now more important than ever.
Despite Nepal’s peerless natural beauty — boasting eight of the 10 highest mountains in the world — and ancient temples and palaces, this landlocked nation of 30 million only receives around 600,000 visitors a year, making tourism a key potential avenue for growth.
TAAN is planning “assessment” expeditions to popular trekking sites like the Mount Everest circuit, the Annapurna region and the Langtang National Park in the weeks to come, so a more concrete picture of the earthquake’s impact can be formed.
Nepal’s government is also in the process of collecting data on loss of infrastructure and damage to heritage sites and popular trekking paths. There are many other areas which could be new tourism products and destinations, so our focus is on that as well. “Our priority is to bring more tourists and provide them quality, safety, hospitality and other services to their satisfaction,” “expressing a desire to re-establish Nepal as a “safe, unique and attractive tourist destination.”
The benefits are especially positive if visitors reside in home stays and frequent independent restaurants and shops.
“People from around the world are willing to help in this situation,”
“One important and sustainable way to do that is to help tourism here flourish again.”
