I guess I’ve held off on posting these since the terrible devastation that was the #nepalearthquake. I had planned to write post after post about my experience and share my story of reaching Everest Base Camp with Team World Vision Australia in March 2015. But 3 weeks after I returned… disaster struck and my focus was changed.
As the Nepalese people begin to gain some strength and encourage tourists to go to Nepal and see their beautiful country, I want to share some of my most special moments.
I advise checking with companies such as Royal Mountain Travel for the possibilities of safe travel and locations that are accessible. It’s best to be safe but I hope that sooner rather than later people can return to see the beauty in the people and the country that is Nepal.
My Top 6 from my Trek to Everest Base Camp with World Vision Australia.

Great article! Everyone that can, should experience the majestic beauty of the Himalayas and the goodness of the Nepalese people. Your photos make me more determined to return soon!
Thank you Ainslee. 100% agree. I’m heading back in October and can’t wait. Look forward to seeing your experience too.
