Coronavirus has affected all our lives but tourism workers have been affected badly leaving jobless for nearly a year now. The Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent quarantine of communities have caused many households of tourism workers to lose their livelihood and income. On March 2020, the Nepal government mandated a nationwide lockdown leaving the Spring season trips postponed. Autumn 2020 season remains inoperable too with daily cases continuing to rise.
Spring and Autumn are the only seasons in Nepal when tourist come to Nepal for trekking and mountaineering adventure. These are the only seasons for tourism workers to earn for their livelihood and feed their families. The income they generate during these seasons helps them provide for their families for an entire year.
At, Highland Expeditions we are a small team of a group consisting of people from all regions, ages and groups. Being a responsible company, we have organized a GoFund Me page to support our guides and porters who are facing critical financial disaster due to this pandemic.
A lot of our clients have asked how they can help us during this pandemic, so we have set up a fundraiser page for those willing to help. We would highly appreciate if you could support our fundraiser by donating and spreading the world.
