Tibet Nepal Overland Border Open
In late August 2017, the Tibet Tourism Bureau in Lhasa announced that the main Tibet Nepal Overland Border crossing was open again after being closed for nearly 2 1/2 years. It is now possible to travel the overland route connecting Lhasa, Tibet with Kathmandu, Nepal.

Nepal Safe For Travelers
I have been to Nepal numerous times since the April 2015 earthquake. I assure you that Nepal is very safe for travelers. Nearly everything in the Kathmandu Valley has been rebuilt. In addition, all major trekking routes are open and safe. I spent several weeks trekking through the Everest Region of Nepal in March and April 2016 and saw almost no damage from the 2015 earthquake. The trails were completely fine and all guesthouses and restaurants were fully operational. It was difficult to even see damage from last years earthquake as nearly everything that was damaged has been repaired. Pokhara and the Annapurna Region did not suffer any damage and are also completely safe to go to. Time magazine reported earlier this year that the best way to help Nepal recover is to go there on vacation. Read the following links regarding traveling to Nepal (I personally recommend visiting Nepal!!):
Again, the Nepal situation today is safe again after the 2015 Nepal Earthquake. Some Nepal earthquake relief efforts are still underway in very remote villages, but nearly all of these are out of the trekking and tourist regions. When more information becomes available on the Tibet Nepal Border reopening, I will immediately update this site and my Facebook page.
