More than ever before, #Nepal needs visitors….

More than ever before, #Nepal needs visitors. Not disaster tourism, but normal tourism – trekkers and climbers planning trips, hiring porters and guides, cooks and yaks and outfitters. Nepal needs hotel beds filled, taxis occupied, teahouses buzzing and restaurants cooking. And it needs us to visit not only the traditional hotspots like #Khumbu, #Langtang, and #Annapurna, but perhaps more importantly it needs visitors to the lesser – traveled realms like the #Ganesh Himal, #Gorkha, #Helambu, #Dolakha, #Humla, #Jumla, #Dolpo, and #Rolwaling, shown in this photo. While these areas don’t always yield the well-known views of #Everest or the 8000m peaks, they Ave incredible depth, intense beauty of people and landscape and culture, and very real need. Please plan your trip to Nepal, and #HelpCarryTheLoad (see link in profile). | In this photo, the sweeping east ridge of #Melungtse (aka #Menlungtse) rises at sunrise from the shadowed valleys of the Rolwaling Valley. Lying in #Tibet just beyond the Nepal – China border, Melungtse is seldom climbed; its neighbor, #Gauri #Shankar, can be seen just behind. #liveyouradventure #visitnepal #nepalquake #nepalphotoproject
