September 2008   Explore Himalaya Travel & Adventure

Greetings from Nepal!

In this fall issue, we have an update on our ongoing community service project - Each One Teach One. The new tourist visa regulation and the revised permit fee in controlled areas have also made it to this edition's highlights.

A new President and Prime Minister has been elected by the Constituent Assembly and three major political parties have reached consensus to form the government on a power sharing basis. With these new political developments, we can now hope for peace, progress and development in all spheres in the coming days.
