Hundred New Tourism Destinations

November 2: With the objective of developing tourism in the country, the Government of Nepal has chosen hundred new destinations in the country for developing them into tourist areas. The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation picked those destinations on the basis of applications and reference from the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), local and provincial governments and the concerned stakeholders.

The government has allocated Rs 5 million for each destination out of the total budget of Rs 500 billion set for the new destinations, informed Ghana Shyam Upadhyay, spokesperson of the ministry.  

“The destinations will be developed in collaboration with the local government and the private sector,” he informed New Business Age.
