We hope that Nepal will get its constitution in 2010 so that it will be inclusionary for all of its ethnic groups and people. Hopefully the GHT will bring much needed resources to the country as Kathmandu is replete with shortages, load shedding and people. That being said having lived there for 3 months in 2009 I cant wait to go back. Namaste, Dipper 13 NYC

Indeed. Nepal is the best place to get up close to the Himalayas. With the highest mountain Mount Everest to the most popular trek of Annapurna, Nepal is the adventure lovers' paradise.

Robin Boustead has just launched his book 'The Great Himalaya Trail A Pictorial Guide'. Robin walked the length of Nepal in 2008 and 2009, and plans to do more in other Himalayan countries in 2010 and beyond. It is a great opportunity to spread the tourism over a wider area, and get money to people who really need it. Trekkers who walk the trail will get to see real Nepali village life away from the main trails. Think about it for your next trip! :)
