Tourists com­ing back to Nepal

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

Nepal tourism is fi­nally dust­ing it­self off fol­low­ing the 2015 earth­quake disas­ter. Tempo Hol­i­days prod­uct man­ager Lind­say Cowan says tourists are re­turn­ing as the coun­try over­comes the disas­ter and gets back on its feet. Cowan adds the ris­ing pop­u­lar­ity comes at a time Nepal was recog­nised by Lonely Planet as be­ing the top best-value des­ti­na­tion. Ad­dress­ing the trend, Tempo Hol­i­days has in­de­pen­dent and es­corted jour­neys through­out Nepal, which is home to eight of the world’s ten tallest moun­tains, in­clud­ing Mount Ever­est. Among them, Glimpse of Nepal is an in­de­pen­dent pack­age en­abling trav­ellers to take their time with what they choose to do. It in­cludes the me­dieval town of Bhak­ta­pur, Pokhara and Bandipur. It moves on to Chit­wan Na­tional Park be­fore trav­el­ling to Nuwakot and then head­ing back to Kath­mandu. The 10-day pack­age starts from $2250 per per­son
