It’s not news that last April and May two massive earthquakes shook Nepal, killing more than 9,000 locals and injuring tens of thousands more. For a community full of lively citizens and an adventure hub for explorers, this was devastating. Especially to the nearly 900,000 houses, over 900 health facilities, and more than 8,300 schools that the government estimates were damaged. To this day, if you visit Nepal, you’ll see that repairing and rebuilding the areas hit the hardest has been a slow process.

When something like this happens to an area that depends so heavily on tourism, it’s crucial for so many reasons to get travelers coming back as quickly as possible. One travel company who has been leading tours through Nepal for years knows that, and they’ve stepped up in a big way to help.

From now through May when you book any Nepal tour with Intrepid Travel, Intrepid Travel will donate 100% of those tour’s profits to their not-for-profit organization, the Intrepid Foundation.
