Tourist Arrival in Nepal Increases By 17 Percentage As Compared To Last Year
Tourist arrival in Nepal crosses 1 million within 11 months. Welcoming 1 million tourists in Nepal was the mission of the government since the year 2011.
Mission since the year 2011 finally complete:
The government had declared the year 2011 as the tourism year. At the same time, the government was in a mission of welcoming one million tourists in a year. However, this mission was not being achieved due to the various internal and external environments.
To name the few, such as lack of good infrastructure, less promotion, a massive earthquake, and political crisis. However, after 7 years this mission of welcoming one million tourists is finally complete.
Will the Increment double in 2020 (within the next two years)?
Nepal has announced Tourism Year 2020 with a new mission to welcome 2 million tourists. Tourism entrepreneurs' optimism may finally achieve this mission. However, welcoming two million tourists will require massive preparation. Some of which are proper accommodation, improvisation of the international airport in Kathmandu are the important ones.
The promotion is going well. However, the government must answer, can Nepal accommodate 2 million tourists within the next two years?
This will depend upon different internal and external factors, some can be controlled some cannot be. Now it is time to make a good investment in improvising the infrastructures. This will provide an opportunity for the country to sell different Nepal tour packages to 2 million tourists arriving Nepal.
