Tourism is one of the primary foreign currency earners for this Himalayan Country, home of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on earth.

World Tourism Network’s main goal is to further communication and networking between the public sector and Small and Medium size companies in the regional and global travel and tourism sector.

Nepal with so many independent travel companies, hotels, and operators is ideally positioned for such a discussion.

Juergen Steinmetz, chair and founding member of WTN went to Nepal in June and participated at the Himalayan Travel Market. He had met with both Deepak and Pankaj at the soft opening of the news Dusit Hotel in Kathmandu to lay the ground for this new chapter. He said at that time, it was a new day for Nepal Tourism.
