Five months since the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake that shook much of Nepal to the ground, Nepali people remain far off from a return to normalcy.
Deep in Langtang National Park, one of Nepal’s most popular tourist destinations, Langtang village remains abandoned, completely leveled by the combined forces of the earthquake and ensuing landslide. Partially buried by the earth that shook free high above the valley bottom, the rest of the village, along with the entire forest on the opposite side of the valley, was demolished by an airblast caused by the slide.
Removed from their destroyed Himalayan village, the few surviving Langtang villagers still find themselves without basic amenities in their makeshift tent camp in Nepal’s capital city, Kathmandu. With no signs of improving living conditions or timeframe to return to what’s left of their homes, these people are in desperate need.
