The Nepalese Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation inked a new tourism agreement with China's Tibet Tourism Bureau at the third tourism fair held in Katmandu, the capital of Nepal.
Nepal will arrange an open roundtrip air route from Katmandu to Lhasa, while a Chinese airline will launch a Guangzhou-Lhasa-Katmandu route. The two parties will also work together on rafting and hiking routes from Mustang in Nepal to Manasarovar in Tibet. Also the Nepal Tourism Board will further discuss promoting tourism with Tibet Tourism Bureau.
Murari Bahadur Karki, the joint secretary of the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, hopes this agreement will be a new milestone for Tibet and Nepal in boosting the development of the tourism industry.
