  Abstract Nepal is one of the most popular travel destinations because of its natural beauty and Himalayas. Tourism industry contributes significantly to the nation's GDP. However, the 2015 earthquake has created great havoc causing loss of more than 9,000 lives, damaging many buildings including World heritage sites and trekking trails. Despite a substantial amount of foreign aid, overall recovery programs have not been effective. This empirical study focuses on the use of ICT tools for the recovery works in the tourism industry and uses mixed methods engaging tourism associations and organisations. Four 'areas of concerns' regarding ICT use, are identified by using the qualitative analysis and validated through a survey of 198 tourism organisations. The findings show that the earthquake has significantly impacted the industry and the government has not adequately used ICTs in the recovery activities. This study strongly advocates using ICT tools for the post-disaster tourism resilience.
