Posted Mar 27th, 2012 under Company News, Tourism News,

Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain has been listed by ‘Forbes’(one of the world’s most popular business magazine & media company) as among the top ten ‘prettiest’ travel destinations in the world. Forbes reporter Beth Greenfield quotes a travel planner who says, “Mount Everest is perhaps nature’s most magnificent creation – certainly it is the raison d’etre in the climbing world.” While the South side of Mount Everest lies in Nepal, the north face lies in Tibet. For Nepalis the mountain is Sagarmata ‘Mother of the Universe’ while the Tibetans call it 'Chomolungma' meaning Goddess Mother of the Mountains”.

Joining Forbes list of top ten ' World’s Prettiest Places’  are Bordeaux in France, Tuscany in Italy, Okawango Delta in Botswana, Plain of Temples in Myanmar, Midway Island and Fire Island in USA, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Torres del Paine National Park in Chile and Petra in Jordan.
