Proposal for cross-border tourism in Himalayan region mulled

Published on : Friday, January 8, 2016

Himalayan regionAiming to narrow down the existing gap in tourism sector across the Himalayan region, tourism experts in Nepal have come up with a new proposal of cross-border tourism in the Himalayan region.

Tourism entrepreneurs proposed to promote the Himalayan region including Nepal, Lhasa of China’s Tibet, Sikkim of India and Bhutan as a cross-border tourism route.

While addressing a forum on Wednesday, Bikram Pandey, president of Himalayan Expedition Nepal, said, “The symbolic route within four different countries can be a major attraction for foreign tourists.”

Tourism entrepreneurs have mulled two separate Buddhist and Hindu circuits in the region. They have devised a guided tour route, including Kathmandu and Mustang of Nepal; Lhasa, Saga and Mount Kailash of China’s Tibet; Gorakhpur, Varanasi and Sikkim of India and Paro of Bhutan.

However, the experts also pointed out the challenges of this new initiative like transportation, tourism facilitation and government policies.

But the good news is that Nepalese tourism entrepreneurs have already received a green light from the Sikkim Tourism Development Corporation of India. However, they are yet to hold formal talks with tourism entrepreneurs of China and Bhutan.
