Nepal tops the top ten travel destination by 'Rough Guide'

Nepal tops the top ten travel destination by 'Rough Guide'

Diverse culture and landscape of Nepal have placed the country in the top of the best places to visit in 2016 by Rough Guides, a UK-based publisher of travel and reference information. “Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one,” says Shafik Meghji, co-author of The Rough Guide to Nepal. 

"After a series of devastating earthquakes and aftershocks, Nepal’s tourist industry is on the rise again. Though hundreds of thousands have been left homeless, and daily life is not fully back to normal, the country’s historic landmarks are slowly being restored. Trekking routes are reopening and the resilient Nepali people are finding their feet. Thoughtfully spent tourist dollars will go a long way here; choosing independent homestays and grass roots tour companies ensures money ends up in local pockets. With varied landscapes – from the Himalayas to jungles inhabited by tigers, elephants and rhinos – Nepal should be your first choice for travel in 2016." - ROUGH GUIDE

Nepal is also at the top in Rough Guide's People's Choice list. According to the travel site, resounding support for Nepal echoed through their 'travelin2016' Twitter hash tag making Nepal the top People's Choice.
"We're all in agreement: tourism is key to helping Nepal recover. From its majestic mountains and lush green rice paddies to decorated temples and chaotic capital, the country also remains an undoubtedly beguiling place," the publication writes.

Nepalese tourism professionals take the highlight as an important step to build confidence in potential travelers.
