A group of 60 Israeli trekkers has set out for the Annapurna Trail today.
The group, which includes 10 physically-challenged trekkers, assisted by wheelchairs, arrived in Nepal on Wednesday with the goal to trek around the Annapurna Trail. An EPSA Nepal (Disabled Center Nepal) Representative also joined the expedition.
Ambassador of Israel to Nepal, Hanan Goder along with the representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, and Nepal Tourism Board had welcomed the trekkers upon their arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport.
Through this adventure activity, the delegation hopes to inspire and send out a message of inclusiveness. Physical challenges should not set limitations for trekking the beautiful mountains of Nepal, the Embassy of Israel said in a press release, wishing the delegation a successful expedition. (RSS)
