Nepal Tourism Board alongside the government has decided to introduce the campaign of ‘Visit Nepal 2020’ after the success of the prior ‘Nepal tourism year’ in 2011. The purpose is to reestablish the hampered inflow of tourist after the mega earthquake of 2015. This campaign is a call out for the travelers and a statement of standing up clear as a safe destination for everyone here. Similarly, the aim is also to share the culture and tradition with others in the world and economically support the development and up swinging the nation from the local level.

This campaign has been supported in different levels by locals as well as the private business sectors. Upgrades have been done in different sections of Nepal, including the Tribhuwan International Airport which is the prime medium of entering Nepal. Teahouses, Lodges, and community homestays are operated even in the rural parts of the country for the visitors. Further advancements are also taken for regular managements of different touristic destinations.

2020 is an opportunity to explore and experience the best of Nepal and We at Himalaya Pic Du Midi are doing our part for making it a successful one for tourism. Join us to miss nothing and for an adventure of a lifetime in the year 2020.
