The earthquake in Nepal in April, 2015, devastated many of the communities that we work closely with, both in Kathmandu and in the villages throughout the Everest region. In the immediate aftermath, we set up a relief fund and—with the generous support of our community of travelers—raised over $100,000. Today, one year on, Nepal is beginning to rebound and we continue to encourage adventure seekers to explore this beautiful land.
Asia adventure specialist Corinne Edwards takes us on an insider journey through Nepal's scenic Himalayan landscape to Everest Base Camp via the beautiful Dudh Kosi Gorge—one of the most stunning hikes on the planet—and the important Tengboche monastery. With epic views of snow-capped giant Mount Everest on the way, this is one of the world's ultimate adventures!
We're delighted to share the travel adventures of Asia Program Director Julie McCormack, whose 12-day journey through Iran was originally published in the Orinda News. From its mind-boggling history and incredible antiquities, to its warm and welcoming people, this insider story goes deep into the fabric of a fascinating nation.
