Prince Harry tours Himalayan foothills in Nepal and dances with Gurkha families. Rough Cut (no reporter narration)
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Britain's Prince Harry, who once served with the Gurkha Rifles, met Gurkha families and visited the Bardia National Park on Monday (March 21) as part of his tour of Nepal. The prince, who is fifth in line to the British throne, went river rafting, learnt about animal conservation as well as joined a trek in the foothills of the Himalayas. The 31-year old travelled to the country to raise awareness that Nepal still needs aid following last year's earthquakes which killed nearly 9,000 people, the Royal Communications team has said. On Sunday, he visited centuries-old heritage sites that were devastated in the earthquakes and met with survivors. Tens of thousands of survivors are still living in huts made from tin sheets and tarpaulin as reconstruction has been delayed by political bickering over a new constitution.
