Thamel, a popular tourist hub in Kathmandu, is all set to become the first Wi-Fi internet zone in Nepal. Mercantile Communications Pvt. Ltd. signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Thamel Tourism Development Council (TTDC) on April 8, 2011 to this effect. As per the agreement, Mercantile will make technical and financial investment for the development of Wi-Fi facility. This agreement will help develop Thamel into Wi-Fi destination, providing easy and quality internet service to tourists and entrepreneurs.
Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
