Nepal ready to assure safety- Trekking routes in Everest and Annapurna to be examined

Posted Jun 14th, 2015 under Company News, Tourism News,


The officials of Nepal Tourism Board have decided to invite the international experts to assess trekking routes of Nepal. The assessment will include the quake affected trekking routes including the popular Everest and Annapurna Regions. Once the team of national and international experts do the inspection of these trekking routes, the team will declare safe to only those routes, which are absolutely safe for the hikers.

The quake that triggered landslides and avalanches in Everest, Langtang and Manaslu Regions has caused significant damages in the routes. Langtang and Manaslu Regions are closed for hikers at the moment. For rest of the trekking routes an assessment to assure safety has been essential.

“After the quake it is essential to examine and certify that the routes are safe,” said Tulsi Prasad Gautam, Deputy General of Tourism department.

Gautam added that international trekking operators are concern about clients’ safety, as well as insurance companies show slight interest to cover trekkers visiting Nepal.

Sources say, the team of geologists will survey the trails of Everest and Annapurna Regions in a month’s time. The trails of other regions will also be surveyed if necessary.

Mixing pleasure with charity – Travelling Humanely

Explore Himalaya recently organized a trek to Annapurna (Ghorepani- Poon Hill) for a group of dentists from UK. After their trek, the group devoted two days of their Nepal stay in conducting a dental camp. The dental camp was held at a local school (Heritage School, Tikathali) in Kathmandu. Around 300 students, plus teachers and guardians received free dental check up as well as lessons on dental hygiene.

An excellent  and charitable concept for professionals travelling in a group to Nepal (or other less developed countries), ie, imparting or utilizing one’s professional skill to help needy locals, while taking in the sights!

Spring Trekking  in the Annapurna Region rewards you with clear skies, good weather, heavenly views of Himalayan peaks and a trail filled with rhodendron blossoms. It is aptly said that trekking in the Annapurna during spring is like  'taking a walk through paradise'. Samir from Sales recently   made that 'walk through paradise' and brought back pictures of his awesome trek. We share a few with you.
