Nepal Travel and Tourism
Travel Activities in Nepal
Business was booming until 1999. After that, the incessant conflict scared off tourists from traveling Nepal and we felt the pinch of the fall in tourist arrivals. There was a time when we recorded such a huge flow of tourists that we used to turn back some. As a professional tour leader we did not have sufficient staff and equipment to handle all of them. But now, situation is just opposite. It is very hard to get clients. Nepal tourism industry that suffered due to such a senseless violence. We are optimistic that the golden days of the tourism sector as a whole, is approaching. The peace has restored, the number of visitors would surge by at least 40 percent by next year's season. Due to political upheaval, many people across the world know about Nepal. Now the message of peace is spread, tourists travel to Nepal in rising up.

It has mainly three types of land patterns, which are Terai (plain), hills and Mountain. Nepal’s geographical land feature hence ranges from below 60m to 8848 m from sea level.

There are many positive impacts to travel Nepal, which has been already stated. To inspire foreigners to travel Nepal government has given security for them.
However, despite of all things it is wonderful experience to find yourself in Nepal. Word of mouth has always been Nepal's biggest source of publicity. And surveys after surveys are reconfirming that once visitors are in Nepal, they always have good experience and fond memories to take back home. Travel to and within Nepal is still safe and enjoyable experience. Just you need to ensure few of things - you are doing right.
The friendliness and hospitality of the people of Nepal, where guests are treated as Gods; the variety of exciting adventure activities including trekking, mountaineering, rafting and jungle safari combined with culture that epitomizes peace and harmony; art and craft; songs and dances make a visit to Nepal a memorable experience.
The Maoist is ruling the country and has regularly publicly announced that tourists are welcome to visit Nepal. And it is fact that not evens a single foreigner / trekker is kidnapped or killed by Maoists in Nepal.
The Everest region is considered SAFEST among all, there are no reported presence of Maoists at all. In other areas it is possible that Maoists will meet trekkers and ask for a donation.
