Today marks the one-year anniversary of the earthquake that devastated Nepal, resulting in the deaths of over 8,000 people.

I’ve spent time in the country and gotten to know a few people who were affected, so this day has a particular poignancy for me.

I had a chance to get up close and personal with the natural surroundings, detailed in an earlier blog post.

Tourism numbers have taken a dive since the tragic disaster, which is devastating for the locals whose livelihood is dependent on the tourist trade.

The incredible beauty of the country is something that has helped draw visitor numbers over the years.

The best way to support the local economy and community of Nepal is to go visit. If that’s not in the cards immediately, anyone interested in finding out more information about how to help the Nepalese people or current support events can visit the REI or CharityWatch.
