Kathmandu, May 2
With the impact of the Covid pandemic subsiding, the Nepal tourism industry is currently looking forward to a post-pandemic revival. Accordingly, it is receiving some positive signs also.
Whereas March 2022 had recorded the highest number of foreign tourists in the country since the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020, the next month of April even exceeded the count.
According to Nepal Tourism Board, April recorded the arrival of 58,384 foreign tourists, and this is over 16,000 more than the arrivals recorded in the previous month.
Stakeholders say the arrival of mountaineers targeting the spring season resulted in a surge in the number in recent months.
