Trekking in Nepal- Dolpo sounds the best option for Autumn 2015
Firstly, let us see the map prepared by Map Action in collaboration with UK Aid that clearly shows the quake affected regions of Nepal.
Nepal’s total area is 147,181 sq. km and within this area, Nepal has 75 districts. Fourteen districts of Central Nepal were affected the by quake 2015. The remaining 61 districts are intact despite the tremor that extended as far as states in India neighboring Nepal.
Every life counts and so does every monument and cultural treasure trove that fell apart. Surely, the quake 2015 has affected Nepal in every possible way.
Few districts including Gorkha, Sinduplanchowk and Dolakha suffered serious damages. However, the most of Nepal’s territory in the highlands, mid-hills and lowland Terais remain intact.
Explore Dolpo the expert trek and expedition operator of Dolpo- the isolated paradise in western Nepal bordering Tibet declares the region we operate are absolutely safe for the hikers willing to hike in the highlands of Nepal.
The assessment made by the experienced guides and locals of Dolpo has assured that all the trails of the mid-west and far-west regions of Nepal have no effect at all despite the tremor felt during the devastating quake.
We understand the global medias have declared Nepal an unsafe travel destination and the government of several countries have directed their citizens to avoid traveling Nepal. But the question is how the logic justifies.
Though sandwiched between two giants (India & China), Nepal is not a small country in itself. Powerful quake has affected only 20% of Nepal’s total area, which is the biggest fact most of the Medias are ignoring or failing to cover.
The trekking trails of Western and Eastern Nepal have no impact at all. Sounds crazy but it is the reality. If trekkers can’t trek to Langtang or Manaslu Region now, that doesn’t mean the entire trekking trails of Nepal have suffered. Apart from famous Everest and Annapurna region treks, Nepal also has so many offbeat trekking trails including the ones of Dolpo and far-west Nepal.
The safety about accommodation in Nepal is the area, where travelers to Nepal could think doubtful. But to assure the global travelers, several sectors have assessed the hotels of Kathmandu and other places by the team of experts. We have safe hotels for our valued clients.
The road connections to different cities are safe and the domestic airports all over the country have been assessed intact.
We agree few monuments in Kathmandu have fallen down. But most of the landmarks beyond Kathmandu Valley are still intact and unharmed during the quake. Pokhara, Chitwan, Bardia and Koshi Tappu suffered not at all during the quake.
Lastly, we urge every foreign traveler to visit Nepal during Autumn 2015 because this is best way to Nepal, economically and emotionally.
