“The vibrancy and the colors of festivals like Gaijatra, Janai Purnima and Teej manifest the upcoming biggest celebrations of the year in Nepal. The festivals like Dashain and Tihar are approaching nearer and so does the most favorable time to travel to this Himalayan nation. Travelers’ autumn in Nepal is on the brink to start.”
“The massive assessments made at different levels in the quake affected regions, the incredible unity to rebuild and bounce back better amongst the Nepalese and the unconditional support from many noble hearts across the world has made impossible a possible and as the result, Nepal is back on its feet ready to cater the greatest walking adventures once again.”
On today’s post, we have covered the three most popular trekking regions of Nepal and the affects made on these regions by the devastating quake of 2015.
The most popular trekking region in Nepal or say in the entire world Annapurna Region remained intact despite the April quake epicentered very close to the region. Miyamoto International assessed all the areas of Annapurna except the section from Thorung Phedi to Throung La Pass because of weather constraints. Only 3 percentages of the infrastructures of the Region suffered slight damages during the quake and thirty bridges assessed were found intact. Hence, Annapurna Region is the safest and the most fascinating trekking region in Nepal for the Autumn 2015.
Everest Region is mostly intact. US based Engineering Firm, Miyamoto International assessed 40 mile of classic Everest Base Camp Trail. Almost 83 percentages of the buildings on the trail and 9 major bridges over raging Dudh Koshi River were unaffected by the quake. The properties that suffered minor damages required slight maintenance and the works have been already begun. Besides the recommendation to relocate the infrastructures of Villages like Toktok and Banker, the Everest Region is safe for trekkers during the upcoming Autumn Season.
The third most popular trekking region in Nepal, Langtang suffered heavy loss during the quake 2015. The landslide triggered by the powerful tremor of April 25 killed hundreds and swept away several settlements of the region. Hence, Langtang Valley Trek that leads to Kaynagjin Gompa is closed for the upcoming Autumn. Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) has put effort to reopen the fascinating treks in Langtang Region. However, treks to the lower regions of Langtang like to Helambu and Gosainkunda are still safe and are in operation.
