We are deeply sadened by the devastating loss of life and the destruction of cultural monuments in Nepal today. It is always hard to see such forces unleashed at the cost of humanity, but Nepal holds a special place in our hearts as it is one of many places we have witnessed first hand the hospitality and kind nature of Nepalese people, as well as their fascinating history. Nepal is truly a wonderful place and full of wonders, people, sights and more. Our thought and prayers go out to all who are affected by the earthquake of April 25th 2015.
At least 2,500 people are confirmed dead in Nepal after the first day, and more in surrounding areas. Numerous historically significant buildings have collapsed around the region, including centuries-old temples and towers.
