Khanal said that the objective of the roadshows was to facilitate mutual growth in the tourism sector. He pointed out that South Indians, especially those from Tamil Nadu, preferred to visit religious places and NTB is keen to promote Mount Kailash-Mansarovar.
He added that Nepal had a variety of tourist spots to attract tourists across age groups and has established itself as the gateway to Mount Kailash Manasarovar. In 2012, Nepal received 164,680 tourists from India by air which is 13.3% increment compared to last year.
