Winning exhibit promotes holidays to Nepal

26th Mar 2013

An exhibition showcasing Nepal as the ideal destination for adventurous holidaymakers has won an award.

Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) came first for having the best exhibit at the Adventure Travel Expo, which was held in Melbourne, Australia recently. The organisation was praised for its artistic design and the way its stand demonstrated the appeal of Nepal as a location for active travellers.

Sushil Ghimire, chairman of NTB and secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, said the government and Nepal was working with the NTB to promote the nation's culture and tourism to attract international visitors.

The NTB's winning exhibit showcased the Great Himalayan Trail as a tourist attraction. The trail is the world's longest high altitude trekking trail at 1,700 km long. It takes about 150 days to walk the entire distance from Taplejung in the east to Darchula in the west.

And a visit to Australia from the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation focused on working towards an agreement to launch direct flights between Nepal and Australia.
