On 25th April 2015, Nepal was rocked by 7.8 Magnitude of the earthquake which left more than 8000 people dead and hundreds of thousands of people homeless. It’s been already more than a year since the earthquake took place. One of the crucial backbones of the country, tourism is still impacted and many tourists are still not ready to make their way to this wonderful Himalayan Nation. Despite the fact that the entire tourism entrepreneurs are assuring the safety and offering discounts on every product they offer. Now, this could be a golden opportunity for those planning to visit Nepal and I am presenting the 5 Great Tips for Post-Earthquake Travelers in Nepal.
Some of the regions in Nepal were severely damaged by the earthquake but now this has all been recovered and locals are awaiting travelers to visit their areas. They have set up lodges, restaurants, and other necessary infrastructure in order to offer smooth service to every traveler. So, giving first priority to the Earthquake impacted region rather than the so-called tourist destinations can be a great contribution to the country. For example, Langtang Region, Gorkha Districts, Sindhupalchok Districts are some of the most impacted areas and these destinations offer amazing and pleasing scenarios for tourists. Visiting Langtang and its Valley can help locals forget their terrible times and help get recovered. So that Why Not we give first priority to those affected areas rather than the other popular destinations and help locals get recovered?
