I'm going trekking on the Annapurna circuit & heard that a flood caused over 200 people to be missing, including some Trekkers. Is it safe?
several Trekkers were missing as well. Is this area now safe for trekking?
The Annapurna circuit is in central Nepal. The flooding is in western Nepal, on the plains that border India, about 350 kms from Kathmandu. The landslides are in an area just north of the capital.

Best thing to do is check with your travel provider about conditions, but remember this is monsoon season at present - although this has been a particularly bad and devastating season. about 5 years ago
