On April 25th 2015, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 struck central Nepal causing widespread damage and devastating loss of life. I lived in Nepal for over three years and during that time I often talked with friends about the consequences of an earthquake as it was widely considered high risk. Now it’s happened, help will be needed for years to rebuild and put in place measures to safeguard against any earthquakes for future generations. Nepal's tourism industry is vital to its economy so it's crucial that people start returning to Nepal and enjoying the wonders of the Himalayas and the wonderful Nepali people, who are ready to share their amazing country with you again.
In October 2014 I was in Nepal to photograph the Langtang region. This valley has suffered a huge landslide as a result of the earthquake and the village of Langtang has been completely destroyed. Hundreds of people lost their lives and hundreds more lost their homes. This is the one and only trekking region in Nepal which remains closed. We started the trek in the less visited Tamang Heritage region which is a culturally rich area. We then crossed into Langtang and walked back to Kathmandu via the Laurebina La and the holy lakes at Gosainkund.
