Nepal world's top destination!!
I am very happy to share this news that Nepal has topped the list of best travel destinations in the world. This is a very positive and encouraging news for Nepalese tourism industry as it struggles to revive tourism in the post-earthquake scene.
According to Rough guide, one of the leading travel publishers in the world, Nepal has been ranked on no. 1 spot in its list of must-see destinations around the world for 2016. The ranking was done on the number of public votes received during recent poll. Similarly, National Geographic Traveller has placed Nepal in the sixth spot among 16 cool locations to visit in 2016.
The UK-based Rough Guides explains, "From its majestic mountains and lush green rice paddies to decorated temples and chaotic capital, the country remains an undoubtedly beguiling place. With varied landscapes -- from the Himalayas to jungles inhabited by tigers, elephants and rhinos -- Nepal should be your first choice for travel in 2016"
Tourism is one of the major industries of Nepal upon hundreds and thousands of people are dependent on. Following the unprecedented loss due to earthquake and 5 month long unofficial economic blockade imposed by India, Nepal is banking on tourism to revive and rebuild its fledgling economy. Nepal is steadfast on the path of recovery and reconstruction of trekking trails, villages and heritage sites.
Following Nepal close on the heels in the second and third spot are Colombia and Cuba. Jordan, Albania, Romania, El Salvador, Wales, Kenya and Sri Lanka wrap up the top ten list. in that order.
