Nepal Tourism Gets Back on Track

Everest Mountain Peak - the top of the world

A high-level national committee led by Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Kripasur Sherpa has decided to bring the country’s tourism industry back on track, according to a story in the July 7 Himalayan Times.

The panel stated that country needed tourists to revive its economy. “The Kathmandu Valley has been declared a disaster-hit zone only to dismantle quake-hit structures but the entire city is safe for visitors, as most of the historical, as well as heritage sites, are already open for public viewing,” said a tourism official.

The panel has also decided to immediately introduce a weather forecast system in the base camps of major peaks, including Mt. Everest, to facilitate trekkers and expedition members visiting the areas.
