Nepal Tourism Board held a roadshow in the city recently. Rohini Prasad Khanal, Senior Officer, Nepal Tourism Board, heading the Nepalese delegation on a promotion mission to South India, said that during 2012, Nepal received 1,64,680 tourists from India by air and the country hoped to register a 17 per cent increase in tourist arrivals from India in 2013.

Nepal is emerging as one of the favourite holiday destinations among Indians given the good air connectivity with about 55 flights a week between Kathmandu and New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Varanasi.

The country has 10 national parks, six conservation areas, three wildlife reserves, and a hunting reserve.

With eight of 14 peaks above 8,000 metres in the world, flights from Kathmandu offered spectacular views of the Himalayas, he added.
