Wendy Wu Tours have been monitoring the situation on a daily basis, however, in regards to the foreseeable future the company will not run their scheduled tours in the main areas of Nepal due to depart within the next month.
Managing director Alan Alcock has said that ‘from an operational perspective, we are coming to the end of the season for travel in Nepal and immediate departures have been cancelled. At this stage future tours scheduled to operate in late 2015 will go ahead as planned and any alternative actions will be made if circumstances dictate’.
He went onto to further say that the majority of customers who were due to travel over the next month have opted to defer travel for later departures in 2015 instead of cancelling outright which is indicative of customers intentions to return.
Mr Alcock reiterates, that as tourism plays an integral part in Nepal’s economy as its main currency earner, it is of great importance for international visitors to return to travelling the country when possible for the benefit of the Nepalese people.
