Journey to Nepal
March 2, 2020 – March 8, 2020
Nepal is a region offering staggering beauty in many forms — home to eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, including the ultimate summit, Mount Everest. The religious blend of Buddhism and Hinduism create a rich tapestry of ancient culture and tradition. Yet despite its natural splendor and heritage, Nepal remains one of the poorest countries in the world and after a decade long civil war, it continues to struggle with political instability and corruption. On April 25, 2015, Nepal suffered a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake, changing the face of the country forever.
