Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Rabindra Adhikari and Chinese ambassador to Nepal Yu Hong jointly inaugurated the website today.
"The government wants to accelerate economic growth by increasing the contribution of the tourism industry to 25 per cent,” Adhikari said – after inaugurating the website – praising the contribution of China towards Nepal’s development. "Nepal has prioritised welcoming Chinese tourists to strengthen the China-Nepal relationship and lead the country towards prosperity."
Speaking on the occasion, Chinese ambassador to Nepal Yu Hong said that the website will help take the bilateral ties between the Nepal and China to a new height and help promote cultural and economic partnerships through tourism. Currently, more than 100,000 Chinese tourists visit Nepal every year.
The board has developed the website – to inform Chinese tourists about major tourist destinations in Nepal – written in Chinese language. The website contains information about tourist destinations of all the seven provinces, including major tourist destinations, attractive pictures of important religious places, temples, snow-capped mountains and rivers.
The infographic video uploaded inside the website contains information of all seven provinces and the routes to reach in there in an illustrated way.
