Support Nepal by going back there for a trek

The April 2015 earthquake in Nepal hit Kathmandu and surrounding regions very hard, causing damage to people’s lives, old attractions and places of interest and even the trekking trails the area is so famous for. Slowly but surely, things are returning to normal, and you can help further by taking your tourism business there. World Expeditions is bringing back itineraries to the Manaslu Mountains and Langtang National Park from Mar 2016.

Many of these tours venture to the base camps of the country’s mountains, including the 20-day Manaslu Circuit & Base Camp Trek (about $3,669), which runs Mar 28-Apr 16. There’s also the 17-day Langtang & Gosainkund Lakes Trek (about $2,948) from Apr 2-18 where travelers will visit the Kyanjin Gompa Buddhist monastery and the sacred lakes of Gosainkund.

If these trips are not your thing, the tour operator also offers Nepal Rebuild trips, with one to rebuild a section of Manju Shree Primary School (about $4,061)  Feb 27-Mar 22. You can find out more here.
