Kathmandu, June 27

With the tourism industry going through a rough patch lately, release of HoneyGuide’s ‘Trekking in Nepal’ app is the expression of the belief that better days are just around the corner.

It is also an attempt to revive the ailing tourism industry by increasing visitor confidence in Nepal, as per a media release.

Trekking in Nepal app currently features the Everest region, Annapurna Base Camp region and Ghorepani Poon Hill region.

For those trekking regions, the Trekking in Nepal mobile app intends to keep travellers safe and engaged.

The app has revolutionary features like ‘Deviation Alerts’ which warns trekkers if they take the wrong path and ‘Avalanche Alerts’ that can warn them when entering avalanche prone areas.

The application also has a refreshingly innovative feature called Placecards’ for the small things that can create a unique and amazing trek’. They could be cultural artefacts like the prayer wheels, birds like the Danphe or flowers like the rhododendron. And placecards explain the significance of these things to the trekker, hence building a connection between the land and the trekker.

Trekking in Nepal has also incorporated what is called the descriptive place-based model for information delivery.

Other interesting features of the product are the mountain finder, complete lodge coverage, and detailed lodge information. Moreover, the application can be used offline, even the maps.

The application is available for Android and iPhones, and trekking regions can be bought as in-app purchases.

Prices are based on the number of days in a trek and hence the prices are as follows: Everest Region $14.99; Annapurna Base Camp $9.99 and Ghorepani Poon Hill free for now but will be later be priced at $3.99, the release adds.
