Popular travel guidebook Lonely Planet has included Annapurna Region in the list of ‘Best Places to Travel in October 2015′. Entrepreneurs say this is good news for the tourism industry in Nepal as the earthquake-stricken country can hope that tourists will visit Nepal in October as per the suggestions of Lonely Planet.
Saying that one can gain some serious altitude in Nepal, Lonely Planet has suggested going trekking in Annapurna for October. “Do your bit for Nepal’s economy and enjoy spectacular views as reward. Everyone has seen the news reports from the 25 April earthquake in Nepal, but most reports neglected to mention that most of Nepal was untouched by the disaster, including the most popular trekking areas. With the clearing of the monsoon rains, October is once again peak season for trekking, and the Annapurna region is a great, nay epic, place to start,” the guidebook writes.
Lonely Planet writes further: “In the process of visiting the region, one will be performing a valuable social service, helping Nepal to rebuild after the disaster by investing directly in the local economy.”
