In the last 20 years Nepal has suffered significantly, with civil war, the royal family massacre and more recently, the two major earthquakes that killed nearly 9,000 people and injured over 23,000.
The country is one of the poorest in the world and relies heavily on tourism. Overall this industry accounts indirectly for well over 1.1 million jobs (3.4% of the total population) and over 8.2% of its GDP.
Although not all of the country was affected, since the earthquake tourism across Nepal has been significantly impacted. There are very real concerns that tourism will be significantly affected for years to come, creating more problems for the country’s recovery and long term sustainability.
The country is one of the most diverse in the world. Its people, languages, traditions and landscape are extraordinary. From the jungles and flat plains in the south, through the enormous mid-hills that span the middle of the country, to the highest and most spectacular mountain range in the north; the Himalaya. There is literally something for everyone.
