Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts
Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts Location: Annapurna | Type: Adventure, Nature Lovers | Tags:NepalNOW, Trek, annapurna, nepal, nepal now The Annapurna region, the most popular tourism destinations of the country, is located in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal. Following the powerful earthquakes of April and May 2015, the extent and severity of earthquake-related structural damage and geologic hazard were widely believed to be limited, but remained unknown. With funding from SAMARTH-NMDP and on behalf of the government of Nepal through the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, an assessment team was dispatched from June 25 to July 2, 2015 to this region to observe and record seismic damages that occurred along the main trekking routes and select villages as a result of the earthquakes. The team was comprised of a structural engineer and an engineering geologist, supported by a professional mountain guide and local conservation officer familiar with the region. The objective of the rapid reconnaissance of the region was to a) develop a baseline understanding of the extent of earthquake-related damage, b) advise on the overall trekking safety of the region’s routes and c) provide recommendations on repairs or risk mitigation that will inform tourism recovery and commercial readiness strategies that are currently being developed by the government, its international development partners, and Nepal’s tourism industry at large. The aim of these efforts is to promote tourism back to Nepal which will support the nation’s economic recovery. The findings of the structural and geotechnical rapid assessment of the region are summarized in this report.
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal Jonathan Irish, a Contributing Photographer of National Geographic, had visited Nepal in 2007. In an Instagram post published on the official @NatGeoTravel account last evening, he told how eagerly he wants to revisit Nepal and espcially after the devastating quakes. He explained that a tourist visits Nepal to trek the world’s highest mountains but they return because of the amazing people. He also urged the travellers to keep Nepal on the top of their bucket list. Here’s what he originally wrote on the post shared with 4.9 million followers of Nat Geo Travel along with this photograph: cover “I miss Nepal. There are some places that stay with you for a really long time. For me, Nepal is one of them. I hiked to Everest Base Camp way back in 2007, it has haunted me ever since. There’s a common saying that goes like this: most people come to Nepal for the mountains, but return for the people. I think that’s really accurate. Walking among the biggest mountains in the world is something special. But it’s the amazing people that make this place unforgettable. I need to go back sometime soon and see this beloved country again especially after the devastating earthquakes recently. Now is the time to support Nepal. If you haven’t been yet, put it to the top of your bucket list.”
