Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. – Shafik Meghji, co-author of The Rough Guide to Nepal
The travel magazine mentioned “After a series of devastating earthquakes and aftershocks, Nepal’s tourist industry is on the rise again. Though hundreds of thousands have been left homeless, and daily life is not fully back to normal, the country’s historic landmarks are slowly being restored. Trekking routes are reopening and the resilient Nepali people are finding their feet.”
Earlier two popular travel publications National Geographic Traveller and Forbes magazine had placed Nepal among 16 cool locations to visit in 2016.
Colombia, Cuba, Jordan, Albania, Romania, El Salvador, Wales, Kenya and Sri Lanka, are the other countries in the list.
With varied landscapes – from the Himalayas to jungles inhabited by tigers, elephants and rhinos – Nepal should be your first choice for travel in 2016.
