When the earthquake hit, Peter was working as a paragliding guide in Pokhara. That meant he had access to a 4×4 and was motivated to help. Pokhara was largely spared, but rural areas nearby were not. “Don’t know the name of this valley,” he told us. “But it’s in Gorkha district, at the epicentre of the earthquake. Between villages Muchok, Dhansar and Saurpani.” If you want to help he and his friends with their impromptu relief effort, details are on KarmaFlights.org. — Ed.
