Nepal Tourism to look at doubling inbound by celebrating 2020 as ‘Visit Nepal Year’

Nepal is embarking on an ambitious programme to promote its tourism spectacle to the travel world through Visit Nepal campaign. Among the objectives of the year-long campaign, the Tourism Board of Nepal hopes to double its current inbound of 1.2 million by the end of December 2020.

Announcing the broad objectives of the campaign at an event in Delhi, Deepak Raj Joshi, CEO, Nepal Tourism Board, said that India both as a close neighbour and the fastest growing outbound travel market is important for its tourism growth, and therefore it is important to engage the travel industry in India and seek support to grow together.

Nepal received 2 lakh Indian visitors last year.  Joshi said that they look to double the Indian visitations in 2020 through educating the travel trade as well as through consumer campaigns.  However, he said that Nepal only counts Indian tourists using the air travel mode and the actual numbers far exceed as lot of Indian tourists use the land borders.
