Nepal is a dreamland for adventure-seeking mountaineers, trekkers, explorers, and all manner of visitors since it first opened its doors to foreigners in the 1950s. The landscapes of the country range from the high mountainous regions to high altitude plains and are home to several high snow-capped mountains of the world including Mt Everest. Similarly, the lush and subtropical forest valleys are home to several species of wildlife and animals. Lastly, we have the plains with agricultural lands through which the country has been sustaining its economical growth. In fact, the variety of landscapes and vegetation has played a significant role in the formation of cultural and traditional gems of the country.

In the past decades, we have seen that it is not only the mountains that have won the hearts of visitors. It is the people, their culture, and their tradition. Thousands of foreign visitors come back to Nepal each year for mountaineering, trekking and wildlife adventure, research, and other leisurely purposes. In fact, the growing tourism industry has contributed a lot to shaping the country’s economic growth and future.

The year 2015 has been a shocking year for Nepal. Without any warning, a devastating earthquake of 7.8 magnitudes hit the country very badly and sadly took thousands of innocent lives with it. Several historical and cultural monuments fell into the ground. It was a big shock to the country. 2016 has been a very tough year and most of 2016 has been about rebuilding and finding peace in people’s hearts.

So your visit to Nepal in 2017 will definitely show your support for rebuilding the nation from the devastating effects of the earthquake that shall be written down in the pages of history. What’s equally crucial is the measures that were being taken for the development of the country. Either way, you are helping the country to rebuild and reclaim its position as one of the top travel destinations in the world.

Even though the country has suffered a lot in recent years – it is still one of the most popular adventure travel destinations in the world. What is most striking from a traveler’s perspective is not much how was lost but how much remains. Nepal has all the skills required to repair infrastructures and monuments, but what it lacks is capital or income.

By visiting Nepal in 2017 you will show your love and support for the people, the local culture, and help a nation rebuild to bounce back even stronger.
