Kathmandu, July 24
The government of Nepal is planning to mark 2023-2033 as the Visit Nepal Decade to promote tourism in the country.
If the plan materialises, it will help the government revive the tourism industry hit hard by the Covid crisis. The government had declared 2020 as Visit Nepal Year. However, it was called off owing to the pandemic.
Unveiling the tourism revival action plan in Kathmandu this morning, Tourism Minister Jeevan Ram Shrestha said his ministry would make an official announcement of the Visit Nepal Decade within the next three months.
Likewise, the minister said the government would run a hop-on-hop-off bus service in the Kathmandu valley targeting tourists.
The governing is also planning to promote nighttime tourism activities in the valley, according to him.
