GREAT HIMALAYA TRAILS

Trekking is one of the tourist attractions in Nepal. With so many trekking destinations, there are many routes to those places at the same time. However, there was no record/track of all those existing trails. Hence, this project was aimed at promoting all the trails in Nepal.

02

Challenges

Even though trekkers reached their destinations well, nobody knew which particular trail one had to take to reach there. There was no proper track of the trails that would have assisted future trekkers on the way.

03

Approach

We created a platform for data collection. It included a feature to re-confirm the collected data with the GPS and arrange the collected data in their sequence.

04

Create

After the collected data was entered into the system, the software would generate all the trails in their respective sequence with names and calculation of distance. The generated trails would automatically be emailed to the print partners.

05

Develop

The app was developed in PHP and MySQL using an in-house code igniter framework. JavaScript was heavily used to create the designs of the signage.

06

Conclusion

While one team would travel collecting data, the other team would be creating signage to mark the trails. It seemingly increased the efficiency. As a result, it helped in identifying each junction along the trail.
