Life in Nepal returns to normal

Just seven weeks after the earthquake, life in the worst affected area, Kathmandu, returns to normal; schools are open, public transport is running, shops and services are available again. Even tourists are returning, watch Paul chatting to Himalayan Footsteps. Hotels are also open and all tourism related services are running.

Our team on the ground snapped these photos around Kathmandu.

Still standing & open

A familiar sight to our customers will be Hotel Ganesh Himal.

Nepal ready to welcome visitors & tourists

Tourists are understandably still wary, we know this from the type of questions received by our office. However, surprisingly the actual damage after the clear up is not as bad as it looked.
