Is Nepal Trek safe after earthquake?

Our answer is "Yes". Nepal is absolutely fine to travel. Wilderness Excursion did two assessment treks to the most popular trekking areas of Everest and Annapurna. We found minor damages in Everest area of Khumbu and Annapurna is totally intact where about 125000 trekkers hike each year in this two most world famous trekking destinations. 

Foreign Trekker, you must have changed your mind after the tremors in this country. You must be thinking, the country has been devastated because that’s how the international media reported.

Yes, some certain parts of the country were devastated. Yes, sections of world heritage sites were destroyed. However, an overwhelming majority of tourist destinations are fine; all essential services, including lodges, restaurants, the internet, air and land transportation are running normally and virtually all the hotels are open. Adventure seekers will be able to return to Nepal from September less than the six months after the devastating April 25 earthquake.
Even though you are sure to see some heart-breaking scenes of Kathmandu's World Heritage sites including Swayambhunath, Kathmandu and Patan Durbar Squares, as you can see in the pictures, parts of these places still look magnificent and glorious. The most beautiful Buddhist pilgrimage site Boudhanath, the great Hindu temple Pashupatinath and Bhaktapur Durbar Square is safe and opened for visitors. 

It was painful not to see tourists in all three places. If you love Nepal, please do not abandon us in our time of need. You want to help Nepal at this crisis. The best way to do so is by travelling to this country this autumn, the best season to visit Nepal.
