There was much talk of more earthquakes and rumors that another one was inevitable, perhaps larger than any of the previous tremors that shook the country. Even if you wore a mask the dust that floated around the Kathmandu Valley from the thousands of buildings that collapsed seemed to find a way deep into your lungs.
There was also a light and warmth that you felt from the hundreds of volunteers from around the world that were there to serve their fellow humankind. A nurse from The Netherlands working in one of the local hospitals, a young Taiwanese backpacker that decided to postpone the rest of her trip to help out. A Japanese medical team whom when I asked how long they would stay, they simply responded, “as long as necessary”. And Nepalis themselves organizing shelters, and meals for the homeless.
The country’s tourism industry is beginning to rebound which is one of the best ways to lend support to the rebuilding of Nepal. For every tourist that visits the country at least seven people are affected in a positive way directly.
Planning a trekking or cultural trip, and even a safari is not only an enriching personal experience, it’s a step towards helping one of the most deserving people anywhere on the planet. You’re welcome to check out trip ideas with our travel company in Nepal, just follow the link below.
