Nepal’s Ministry of Tourism is planning to develop Mechi zone in eastern Nepal as a tea tourism hub. The Ministry has put forward a campaign to promote tea tourism through Mechi Mountainous Tourism Development Committee, keeping Ilam district as the centre of the campaign. Tea tourism which involves tours to tea growing estates and experiencing the process of local tea leaf production is becoming quite popular among western tourists in search of exotic experiences. Other districts included in the campaign are Taplejung, Panchthar and Jhapa.
We had a wonderful journey through the Himalayas.Our trip was to fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa and then journey overland in a 4×4 back to Kathmandu. The truth is that the organization was perfect at all times.
