Is Nepal Safe To Visit Now?
Still the same
Everything that was possible before the earthquake is still possible. Treking, tours, rafting, driving, flights and every other adventure are possible.
Reasons to Visit Nepal Now
Nepal has heartily welcomed people from all around the world regardless their age, nationality or religion. We have witnessed the massive earthquake; in fact we are still experiencing the aftershocks. Nepal lost lives and many people were left injured because of the quake. We still remember the answer that we got when we are asked by foreginers in my network, "What comes to mind when you say the word Nepal?" Simply put, it is the friendly people of Nepal. When we are in the wilderness it’s as if we see a newer side of ourselves which we never knew existed. This is best explained by John Muir when he says, “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilised people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is necessity…” The wilderness takes on a whole new meaning and even more exciting when it is in the mighty Himalayas. The Himalayas has an immense number of places where one can realise the best trekking experience. Ace Holiday Treks can accommodate budgets and treks for beginners, explorers to the experienced trekkers and mountaineers. The amazing snow-clad mountains, breathtaking views, friendly views and centuries old culture are reasons why you should trek in the Himalayas at least once.
What first comes to mind when the Himalayas are mentioned are the snow capped mountains. From Everest to Kanchenjunga to Ama Dablam, massive, majesty and splendor are what you can expect when trekking in the Himalayas. A trek in the Himalayas gives you a view of many such peaks.These are really massive mountains. They are big, magnificent and breathtakingly beautiful. It is not just a sight – it is an experience of a lifetime.
Forget the post cards. The mountains and villages are the real deal. With each step and each snap of your camera, you've generated instant post card-like memories that will last a lifetime with photos you can send instantly. Almost every trek...every step, has the potential of turning your trip into the journey of a lifetime. The roaring rivers seem to come alive as do the flocks of sheep grazing on the hillsides of emerald green grass.
Sunrises and Sunsets
When you trek up to the real mountains, you can see clear 360° views of the snow capped mountains and the sun going down, turning the mountains to a fiery production of nature's finest colours. Just like you drew them in school.
Although Nepal is one of the poorer countries in the world, it is one of the richest when it comes to history and culture. Before or after a trek in the mountains, take time to explore Kathmandu, or visit Bhaktapur – you will feel as if you have just stepped back in time. A small fee is associated with some of these sites, but it will also go to help the Nepalese communities get back on their feet after the devastating earthquakes of 2015.
Discover The Prayer Flags
The mountains are replete with prayer flags. One of the things that makes trekking in Nepal different from anywhere else in the world are the brightly coloured strings of prayer flags. The five colours represent the five elements; blue for sky, white for air, red is fire, green is water and yellow is for the earth. The Nepalese culture believes that health and harmony is achieved through the balance of these five elements.
