Following Saturday’s earthquakes in Nepal, World Challenge has undertaken an initial review of the country as one of its expedition destinations.
Due to the limited communications coming out of the country, and widespread damage to the infrastructure, we have taken the decision to divert one school, that was due to fly out to Nepal on 9 May, to another country so as to ensure that they still have a safe and enjoyable life-changing experience.
We will continue to monitor the situation in Nepal, gleaning information from our government and security agencies as well as our own knowledgeable in-country agent.
Currently we remain confident that schools due to travel to Nepal from June onwards will still be able to travel safely and enjoy their expeditions with only minor itinerary tweaks.
We intend to provide a weekly update to those schools that are due to depart over the coming months.
World Challenge’s highest priority is the safety of our participants. Over the last 27 years we’ve worked hard to develop an excellent reputation for our approach to safety and how we operate in over 40 destinations around the world.
Our thoughts go out to the people of Nepal and to those who have lost loved ones in the tragedy at this very difficult time.
