    • Nepalese name Payma / Paima

      Nepal May 12, 2015 at 8:14 AM

      Hi there, I travelled to Darjeeling in India and did some trekking in Singalila National Park. During the trek we crossed the border into Nepal and stayed in a village where we met a little girl who we fell in love with! We were told her name was Payma or Paima or possibly Bayma. I can't find any record of this as a Nepali name, or a meaning for the word, so wonder if I may have misheard or misunderstood the pronunciation.

      Any help would be much appreciated! We are expecting a baby are considering naming her Payma/Bayma but want to get the spelling and origin of the name correct if possible - if it exists!

      Thank you.

      Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund: How to help

      Nepal Apr 29, 2015 at 3:40 PM

      As a global company, we believe we have a responsibility to not only support the communities where we live and work, but to lend a helping hand when disasters strike and one is needed. We wanted to let you know that the TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation (which includes VirtualTourist) has made a disaster relief grant to Global Giving in support of their Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund. These funds will support earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Nepal. The Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund will use all donated funds to help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, the organization will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.

      If you would like more information on the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund or would like to donate, you can do so globalgiving.org/projects/ne...

      For anyone who may have family or friends in the impacted areas, we are thinking of you during this difficult time.

      With kindest regards,
      VirtualTourist

    • Joining your efforts

      Nepal May 15, 2015 at 12:20 AM

      Hello,
      I am flying in on May 23rd from US and will be there for a month to help in any way I can. I am taking first aid and CPR with the Red Cross prior to flying out and will be bringing a special water purification system (specifically kills parasite in water this season) and grains and light cooking equipment. I am answering God's request that I go and am traveling alone. Presently the airport is reported as being closed but I am hopeful that it will be open by the time I am scehduled to fly in. May I join your group's efforts? Because I am not a registered doctor I have not been taken on with any other group. I have donated money through organizations but feel in my heart that I must be there to help in the way God intends. I will be obtaining an international phone and in that way may be able to get in touch upon landing or will meet at a designated location depending on what the situation is. If there is anything that would be helpful for me to bring that is needed I would be happy to do so per your advisement. Thank you so much for your taking the time to read and respond. I look forward to hearing from you.

      Langtang National Park Apr 26, 2015 at 2:39 PM

      Hello,

      Are there any information about the current situation beyond Langtang Village?

      My daugther, Ina Sonne, and two of her friends, Sofie and Petter, all about the age of 23 years old and from Sweden should have left Langtang Village for Kyanjing Gompa on Saturday morning according to their plan.
      Our hope is that they can have passed the avalanche area and reached safety further into the valley.

      Any information about them is highly appreciated!

      Are you still travelling to Kathmandu/Nepal?

      Kathmandu Apr 29, 2015 at 7:06 AM

      Hi all,

      Following the tragic earthquake which struck Kathmandu and environs, are travellers still visiting? My husband and myself are booked on non-refundable tickets to visit in 3 weeks and I'm a bit nervous. We may do a bit of volunteering but would like to see some of the rest of the country as well....Are there any like-minded travellers out there who will also be travelling there soon?

      Hi! I'd like to travel to Nepal soon. I'd like to go to Lukla. Is it possible to travel to Lukla by bus rather by flight? How's the weather like in spring? Is it very cold since Nepal is surrounded by mountains with high altitute?
      Thanks!
