Nepal was hit by a massive earthquake on 25th April 2015 and 12th May followed by many other aftershocks. It was for sure that Nepal was highly affected by this earthquake. But now the time has changed and the situation has got better. It has been more than 5 years since Nepal was hit by the earthquake.

Nepal is now marked as safe and sound to visit by The Government of Nepal, Ministry of culture, and Tourism, and civil aviation in its press release. Even the government of the UK, USA, and New Zealand have also stated Nepal as safe to visit among their citizens.

We are here with some of the information about safe and unsafe trekking routes in Nepal after the earthquake. Langtang Region, Manaslu Region, Ganesh Himal Regions, Makalu Regions, Rowling Regions, and few places of Everest Region are only the trekking regions highly affected by the earthquake.
