Nepal tourismNepal tourism saw some positive numbers in 2016 after the Himalayan country suffered badly in 2015 from a powerful earthquake, and India’s blockade that kept tourists away. All the tourism positivity thanks to the arrivals of tourists from China and India.

 

Nepal’s Department of Immigration statistics showed that tourist arrivals from China to Nepal surged by 55.26 percent to 104,005 in 2016 on year-on-year basis. Likewise, arrivals from India also grew by 57.4 percent to 118,249 last year.

 

As a result, overall arrivals in Nepal rose by 39.71 percent to 753,002 in 2016 after arrivals plunged to a six-year low of 538,970 in 2015.

 

India and China are the largest source markets for Nepal’s tourism industry.
Despite recovery, arrivals are yet to reach the 2014 level when Nepal received a total of 790,118 foreign travelers.
