Best Selling Trips for 2016

Nepal is home to the best climbing, trekking and mountaineering on earth but 2015 was not a good year for Nepal’s tourism as the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on April 2015 left a huge impact on a country leaving many people dead and historical sites turned into rubble. As Nepal’s economy is stimulated by tourism, the rebuilding, repairing, safety assessment work began immediately without wasting much time. Even though many trekking regions, the capital city(Kathmandu) were unaffected from the earthquake, many travellers postponed their trips and many even cancelled with no sign of returning to Nepal and to its beautiful Himalayas but the country welcomed quite numbers of travellers in Autumn 2015 regardless of that tragic moment and they all had their adventure of the lifetime and returned back with memories that will be cherished forever.
