A Glimpse of Kathmandu

Made it to Kathmandu after an enjoyable stopover in Hong Kong; one perk of travel to Asia is interesting layovers. A day of preparation before heading into the mountains for the Everest Base Camp Trek has left me little time to take a look around the city. I did get the chance to meet with Sagar from our Kathmandu office and Neel. Neel and I will join Mountain Madness guide Deana Zabaldo and her organization Changing Lives Nepal to deliver five computers to schools and an orphanage outside of Kathmandu.

Nepal fundraising completed- thanks to all!

A huge, heartfelt thank you goes out to all who donated to the Rebuilding Nepal's Villages GoFundMe campaign. Thanks to 542 of you, nearly 90 thousand dollars will go toward recovery in the aftermath of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th of this year.

Nepal Update

As the country of Nepal continues to make a slow recovery, Mountain Madness is still actively working to allocate the money all of you have generously donated through our GoFundMe account. For those of you who have travelled with us to Nepal, you have likely met Dawa Sherpa, our lead Sherpa. And for those who were on the trek with us during the earthquake, they continued to experience his kind heart and generosity as he and his family welcomed them to a meal outside their destroyed home.

Direct Assistance for Nepal

We have all seen the images.  Cultural landmarks that have stood the test of time for centuries, now reduced to rubble.  Homes destroyed, thousands dead and millions now homeless. For anyone who has been to Nepal, these images are beyond heartbreaking; even more so when you think about the generous spirit of the Nepalese people. Mountain Madness has been offering trips to Nepal for over 20 years now and to us, it is so much more than a destination on a map. Our employees in this area of the world are family.
