I Traveled To Nepal Before, During, And After The Earthquake, And You Should Come There In 2016

Nepal used to be one of the most popular dream destinations, where people find themselves and world renowned treks. But this year’s earthquakes and political problems aggravated the touristic issue even more. Everybody canceled their trip and now everybody is asking the question on forums : is it safe ?

Nepal just came 6th place on the National Geographic Traveller magazine’s Cool List 2016. This welcome news could not have come at a better time when bookings have gone down by 50%.

I came there before the disaster, I was trekking when it happened and I came back when the fuel crisis was going on and all I can tell you that I will came back this year because :

If there’s one part of Nepal that will remain with you for the rest of your life, it’s the postcard-worthy scenery you’ll see

Come to listen to the soothing sound of the stream

Or if you prefer the silence of the fog and the lake

One of the safest and most beautiful trail you can see is in Nepal

Trekking routes are reopening and the resilient Nepali people are finding their feet

Every season in Nepal has its perk

When I am in Nepal, I can feel the freedom, touch the nature

Who would not like having a cup of hot chocolate in the morning with this view?

Drinkable water comes from the melting snow

The mountains are so beautiful it feels unreal

Come there to take a break from your daily routines and discover yourself

One of the best places to see the milky way with the backdrop of the mountains

Come to see how tiny you are in this world

Have a beer by the peaceful Fewa lake in Pokhara in sunset

Even the light the cloud there is magically beautiful

Come to know your limit

Or maybe make the best memory by coming there for your honey moon with your lover like this lovely couple

Everywhere you go, you’ll be visited with a smile and a “namaste.” You’ll find that the Nepalese people are eager to show you their favorite cultural sites and scenery

Just you going there is helping

For you, Nepal is one of the cheapest country ever, but for the locals, a good season could make a big difference

Tourism is a big part of the Nepalese economy and since it started slowing down, people over there are in trouble

The community is getting back up from the earthquake tragedy with such an attitude, just be humbled

They need you

The guides, the porters

His owner does, too

I guess I won’t be able to measure how right I am on this one until I actually come back from Nepal, but just reading about it is making all my troubles seem small

The only thing I can assure you is that a trip to Nepal will alter your life forever. It will plant positivity in you and will bring out the best in you

I went from Bangladesh to Nepal a few weeks before the earthquake, and I met so many wonderful people and had an amazing time! I'll recommend everyone going there. It is safe, also for solo, women travellers. When the earthquake hit, we could feel it in Dhaka Bangladesh, so many kilometres away. I cannot imagine how it must have been for the Nepalese people, but they are strong willed, and they will push through. I hope I can visit again soon, and support Nepal and its development! Hugs from Denmark!

Hi Giang Hoang. Your article is inspired me a lot. I have once traveled alone to 4 SouthEast Asia and i have the same feeling when i read this story. I have heard a bunch of times about Nepal from my friend but i thought it was a place where people come and trek Everest moutain. But now i think Nepal is really really on my list. Btw, can you share your plan and the cost for the whole trip via my email: havanlinh304@gmail.com. It would be nice if i can experience Nepal just like what you have done.

I came there with different itinerary. Normally , the cost will be about 50 USD per day for food and lodge, also depends on if you are using domestic flight or not and porter/ guide. I will recommend to write to the agency : info@odeaservices.com ,deviamgain@gmail.com . You can tell them what is your budget and how long you are planning to travel in Nepal . Best
