Nepal has promoted its historical destinations in the three major cities of Australia - Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane - on August 18th, 20th, and 23rd, 2015, respectively, as a part of post-earthquake tourism recovery plan.
During the promotion events, Secretary of government of Nepal and Chairman of NTB Suresh Man Shrestha highlighted the true picture of Nepal, readiness of Nepalis communities to welcome the foreign tourists, and the government's initiative to recover its tourism business after the devastating earthquake of April 25th, 2015 with the theme of “Bounced Back Nepal: Safe Nepal after the Quake”.
As the tourism sector is one of the important sector in Nepal’s economy, over a million people are directly associated with the business, said Shrestha.
Despite massive earthquake, the roads and air transport links remained inctact across the country while more than 90 percent of hotels and restaurants are back in operation, said Shrestha.
“Trekking areas except some parts of Manaslu, Rolwaling and Langtang have not been damaged by the Earthquake and trekking can be undertaken any time in these areas.”
The international team Miyamoto has also already assessed the safety of major trekking trails, informed Shrestha adding that only 3km trekking trails have been partly damaged that would be reconstructed within a month.
