Trekking to Nepal after Covid-19
December 28, 2020
As all trekking and mountaineering activities stopped in March alongside hotels and restaurants, because of which tourism and hospitality sectors suffered tremendous losses. But the pandemic is unlike any obstacle that the tourism industry has seen and will test our resilience, perseverance, stamina, positivity, and imagination at once. Pandemic has offered an excellent opportunity to find ways to reinvest sites-much required introspection as the Pre-COVID-19 tourism industry was far from a perfect industry. Tourism, however, has been the hardest affected sector by the pandemic and the government has pledged to help the industry.
The thrilling magnificent mountain views, crashing waterfalls, vast precipices, breathtaking sprouting forests would certainly overwhelm everybody's heart. Trekking in Nepal would certainly overwhelm anyone. There are some of the oldest and most famous temples in the world and some of the oldest walking paths in the world. Here in three major mini-Kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley – Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur, a world-class architectural and artistic heritage – the most sophisticated urban cultures of the Himalayas took shape. There are numerous clichés of Nepal, first of all, the mountainous country with 8 of the highest mountains in the world and paradise for climbers, especially in the pursuit of mountain climbing, secondly the collection of top trekking destinations, third the birthplace of Lord Buddha.

Nepal Travel Resume, Nepal Trekking Post, disease outbreak corona
Starting on 17 August 2020, the government of Nepal is preparing to resume flights from low-risk countries. The practical decision still must be taken by the government. The decision to lift the restriction on flights which existed for four months due to the COVID-19 pandemic is welcome for airlines and tourism companies. The only chance to meet a smaller group of visitors from October depends on the government regulation of the pandemic and the absence of quarantine to open the country for foreign airlines in August.
Although if airlines lifted and the tourism industry reopened again. The question is, is the tourist going to have faith in Nepal travel? The year of insurgency made it impossible for many of the country's hotels to support themselves financially and as a result many hotels also closed. In this situation, our tourism industry is concentrating on a reinvestment policy in the tourism industry.
About the countries allowed to visit Nepal after COVID-19
The government has not elaborated on which countries will be first but has said more countries would eventually be added. This may mean that in our country's Nepal every nation is welcome. Travelers can only fly in from the low-risk country, however.
About the Requirement of quarantine or self- isolation upon arrival
The government has not yet reported any regulations on self-quarantine, but it is unlikely that 14 days of quarantine will be implemented with the forthcoming climbing seasons.
About the PCR negative requirement to enter in Nepal
It seems now that it matters just which country you are traveling from because in the first step of reopening Nepal would only be available to countries with low Covid-19 occurrences. A safety certificate stating that they are free of Covi-19 must be issued to travelers arriving in Nepal from August. However, authorities have still not specified that they would consider only the PCR tests or the time limit on when the test was carried out.
About what is Open in Nepal?
After the lifting of the lockdown, Public buses run, restaurants are open, and people move freely from one place to another. However, in the case of the tourism sector, the following companies will resume operations by 17 August 2020
Hotels and accommodation facilities
Activities relating to tourism
Permits for trekking and climbing
What is our new strategy to adapt new strategy to improve Tourism?
Our tourism industry is trying to follow a new 'High-Value-Low Impact' tourism model, which will take care of affordability, cut-throat pricing, quantity over quality, and emissions. However, Nepal needs to have long-term sustainable tourism planning.
How our Restaurants and Hotel encouraging Travel?
Our hotels, restaurants are now following government-made guidelines on hygiene and health protocols. They are focusing to have fair pricing which can be paid by our domestic travelers. We also ensure that all the stakeholders where domestic tourism moves are following the safety protocols. Before we start receiving foreign tourists, our main priority is to concentrate on domestic tourism to give our hospitality industry a respite.
What our government is doing to make traveling safe and comfortable?
As we talk about the roles of government to make traveling safe and comfortable and to see tourism grow our economy after COVID-19, the government is coming up with a long-term policy and strategy that focuses on the safety and comfort of travelers. The government acts as a facilitator and involve the private sector in helping to overcome the huge loss faced by the tourism industry and focusing on types of mechanism that will work to make tourists feel comfortable. This time government of Nepal is planning to invest especially on tourists’ safety.
