Hundreds of medieval and ancient monuments of Kathmandu were damaged during the 2015 Nepal earthquake. However, Kathmandu sightseeing remained highly unaffected as most of the UNESCO Heritage sites had already gone through renovation. Hundreds of artisans are employed at the few damaged sites making it interesting to learn about the architecture. Kathmandu sightseeing at the mean time is an opportunity to understand medieval Newari art and architecture.
The Himalayan country of Nepal was shaken by massive earthquake on 25 April 2015. Because of the steep mountainous landscape and feeble structures, 8,800 people were killed and about 2, 00,000 houses were destroyed.
The tremor damaged trekking route of Langtang and Everest. However several other trekking trails like Annapurna and Kanchanjunga were not effected. The media coverage of the news did more damages by bringing the tourism to minimum.
Most of Nepal tour / trek destinations are intact. Kathmandu have seven groups of monuments together enlisted as UNESCO Heritage site. Except Kathmandu Durbar Square, the other heritage sites of Kathmandu are ready and safe for tourists to visit. The video shows the Kathmandu heritage site after the earthquake. Even though few monuments collapsed, this doesn't affect the medieval ambiance that Kathmandu exhibits. Rubble has been removed and damages have been fixed to the safety. Government has opened the heritage sites of Kathmandu from mid June for foreign tourists. Kathmandu durbar square is severely damaged by the 25th April earthquake and its subsequent aftershocks. But it is worth walking or taking Rickshaw through old Kathmandu to the center. Restoration work will begin soon with scores of skilled artisans working to make terracotta and wood carvings. The video shows heritage sites of Kathmandu after massive earthquake and how it is still interesting to visit Nepal.
The Himalayan country of Nepal needs tourists more at this moment to rebuild thousands of schools and houses. People watched media covering the earthquake and damages caused by it. But huge part of Himalayas and Nepal is still unaffected. Our airports were operating right from the day of earthquake. Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini are other major tourist destinations which were not affected by the tremor. Out of the 10 Himalayan massifs, only Langtang and Everest were affected. Teams of experts have been mobilized to survey the damages and routes have been reopened.
iTourNepal P Ltd being a sustainable Himalayan tour operator is helping with rebuilding school in a remote village of Nepal. We are allocating certain percentage of the profit from our Autumn sales for the construction of school.
