Nepal’s Tourism Back in Growth.
A more stable government and a huge surge in public expectations of a better economy has started bearing fruits for the himalayan kingdom. The Nepal Tourism Board’s (NTB) new slogan “Naturally Nepal” has shown a 60% increase in tourist arrivals in the country this year.
Nepal is moving towards improving the quality of their tourist stay by re evaluating the permit processes and streamlining the bureaucratic processes for a hassle free trip to the country. The Nepalese tour guides promises gone are the days where you get questioned by a dozen different officials for permits and visas.
The figures ( Tribhuvan International Airport, Nepal) shows there is definitely a boom in tourism. With the rising world oil prices and a drop in long haul holidays this is a very positive result for the entire tourism industry in Nepal. Another unique feature of Tourism in Nepal is that over 40% of the tourists are repeat visitors, this in-itself is a proof of their splendid tourist hospitality.
