Here is how Nepal assisting Tourists who are stranded in Nepal

| |

Ever since the announcement of nationwide lock-down on March 25, the panicking among the tourists who are stranded in Nepal has been considerably lowered. As soon as the lock-down took place, Nepal Tourism Board formed a unit called “COVID Crisis Response Task Unit” whose sole purpose was to help and rescue the stranded tourists in different regions of Nepal.

“All the stranded tourists will be rescued, kept safely for self-isolation, and facilitated for their safe journey back home,

Hon. Minister of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation. 

An estimated 10,000 tourists from Europe, Australia, South Korea, the United States, and Canada have been stuck in trekking routes and other tourist locations as per the Nepal Tourism Board. Out of which, nearly 1,000 have been successfully rescued from remote mountain regions to Kathmandu through airlift and overland transportation as of now. The rescue team is continuously working to bring more of the visitors to Kathmandu. 

In the meantime, locals are providing essentials to the tourists from their side and many hotels have already waived off the rent for a couple of weeks. Nepal has been able to take control of the situation until now as the nation is under complete lock-down, restricting movements to only essential service. 

#STRANDEDINNEPAL Campaign: 

Nepal Tourism Board has initiated the “Stranded in Nepal” campaign to track the tourists and their situation. A dedicated website, WhatsApp and Twitter accounts have been created to update all stranded across the nation. The channels can also be used to reach out to NTB for assistance and rescue proposals. 

For convenience, the Stranded in Nepal website contains all the contact detail of the responsible bodies in Nepal. Below is the information that you will be able to find at www.strandedinnepal.com: 

  1. A tourist location survey
  2. List of Airlines & Contact
  3. List of Hotels & Restaurants that are open 
  4. Important notice for tourists 
  5. And steps being taken to rescue 

Message for tourists: 

If you are stuck on your route while traveling, you are requested to consider the following message from Nepal Tourism Board. 

Important: Unfortunately, you can not leave the country at the moment. However, you need not panic as the embassies and NTB are in collaboration to accommodate you as long as you are stranded in Nepal. 

  1. You must avoid unnecessary movement. Only go out for medical emergencies or to get cash. Respect all the instructions from the national and local authorities. 
  2. Inform your whereabouts to the respective embassy. If your country does not have an embassy here in Nepal, contact the nearest one (probably in India) through email or phone. 
  3. Do not worry about your VISA during the lockdown. If you were legally in the country on March 21st when the lockdown started, then you are fine. The government has announced that the VISA extension fees for the lockdown will be paid for. 
  4. Expenses such as accommodation/food/flight are not to be expected. In case you run out of money, reach out to your friends and family first. If not possible, contact the local authorities who will provide you with the necessities. However, at this point, you will be treated as any Nepali citizen. 
  5. Maintain discipline and behave appropriately. You are a guest in our country thus you must respect the local population and their rights. 

Nevertheless, we should not lose hope. Nepal is considered one of the safest places to be in this global pandemic. We advise you to keep calm and avoid panicking. Co-operate from your side as much you can and things will soon be alright.

Higly recommended I did the Langtang Valley trekk with Gosaikunda lakes included. The preparation and communication for that has been great all the time. Nim is an excellent and knowledgeable person. My Trekkingguide was Gorakh and i couldn't have hoped for a better one! I felt like i was in good hands throughout the trekk and he took care of my dietary needs. They also booked my bus ticket to Pokhara and asked the bus driver to pick me up at a place which was closer to my accommodation. Thank you so much Nim!! Next time i will do the Manaslu trekk with you :)

Trek to Rara Lake in Nepal with CoreTreks My wife and I had been planning to visit Nepal since like a year ago. We are really happy and satisfied with our trek to Rara Lake in Nepal. The place is really chilling with beautiful scenery all around. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we got a clear view of the mountains and the lake. We are really humbled to be able to experience such a rare privilege. Our guides informed us that the weather is often bad especially because of the altitude. The alpine vegetation surrounded by mountains was really special to observe. I would like to thank CoreTreks for helping us throughout our journey to Rara Lake.

Great service Beautiful temples and delicious food After touring around the Kathmandu valley, I’m inspired to explore more about Nepal. Unfortunately it will have to be during my next visit. The city is way busier than I expected it to be. As we drove outside the valley, we discovered some peaceful environment and beautiful temples. The Nepali cuisine in Kathmandu was something I would love to try again. They are spicy but delicious. I have to say that the people in Nepal are really friendly and welcoming. Everyone greeted us with love and treated us nicely. There was no fear for a lone traveler like me to get through the tour. Thanks to CoreTreks and the team for making this tour possible for me. I booked last minute but they helped me through everything. I really appreciate it. If you are looking to visit Nepal, I highly recommend that you book from CoreTreks they are the best.

Langtang Trekking 이제 돌아와서 한숨돌리고 적네요. 네팔이란 나라가 처음이고, 한국에서도 등산한번 하지 않았었는데, 갑자기 네팔이 가고 싶었습니다. 네팔에 가면 뭔가 꽉막힌 마음이 뚤릴것 같았고, 복잡한 머리가 정리가 될것 같았습니다. 다행이 CORE TREK 의 Nim을 만나 트레킹을 잘 마무리할 수 있었습니다. 랑탕 출발하기전 호텔 부킹이나 팀스 / 퍼밋 , 환전 및 준비물 구매 등 그리고 이런 일들을 하기위한 이동까지 꼼꼼하게 함께 챙겨 주어서 그나마 잘 준비하여 트레킹을 시작하였습니다. 그리고 트레킹 중간에 대부분이 3G를 사용하지 못해 가족들에게 연락이 되지 않았는데, 다행이 Nim과는 현지 폰으로 연락이 되어, 저 대신 가족들에게 연락도 가능하고, 중간 중간에 문제 있는지등 그리고 복귀 마지막날 뭔가를 잘못먹었는데 아파서 호텔에서만 누워 있었는데, 그래도 타국에 누군가 연락할 수 있다는게 많은 도움이 되더군요. 저는 포터 및 가이드 없이 혼자서 갔다왔고, 트레킹이야 혼자만의 싸움이였지만, 카트만두 출발전 / 복귀후에는 Nim이 많은 도움이 되었네요. 다음에 또 네팔에 오게되면 필히 Nim과 함께 하겠습니다.
