12-01-17: Tourists are coming back to Nepal

By Anya Palm

After a challenging 2015 where Nepal were hit by a devastating earth quake and a political disagreement affecting border trade with India, the country´s tourist industry is now making a comeback.

The visitor numbers went up 39 percent in 2016, with the last three months accounting for the biggest rise. The growth is expected to last throughout 2017 and beyond, says Kedar Neupane, director general of the Department of Immigration in Nepal.
