Flow of tourists to Nepal from India posted a 28% growth in 2011 as compared to 2010, an official of Nepal Tourism Board said yesterday.
India is the most significant market for the Nepalese tourism industry, accounting for about one-third of the total overseas visitors,” Udai Bhattarai, a member of Nepal Tourism Board, said at a press conference in Kathmandu.
The Himalayan nation recorded a robust 28% increase in Indian tourists last year as compared to 2010, he said without revealing figures.
Nepal tourism generated $377mn revenue in 2010 with influx of travellers from the UK, Japan, Spain, Germany and France. These countries accounted for 45% share in the tourism market,
Diwakar Bikram Rana, officiating director of the board, said 2012 has been declared as the ‘Lumbini Year’ to promote the birthplace of Lord Buddha as a tourist spot.
The board has embarked on a series of roadshows with the aim of increasing awareness in India about Nepal’s tourism offerings, Rana said.
One such roadshow was organised in the city. The tourism sector contributes 4% to Nepal’s gross domestic product (GDP), Rana added. Agencies
