As part of the promotional campaign for Nepal tourism Year 2011, a program was organized by the Nepalese Embassy and Nepal Tourism Board on December 10th, in Stockholm, Sweden. During the program Swedish personalities and organizations who have contributed in the promotion of Nepalese culture and tourism in Sweden were felicitated. High ranking Swedish officials, summiteers, academicians, tourism entrepreneurs, travel writers, hoteliers and Nepalese and Swedish nationals attended the program. Among those felicitated were climbers who had summitted Nepalese peaks, Presidents of Swedish Alpine Club, Swedish Climbing Federation, Swedish Mountain Guide Organization and Sweden Nepal Society.
We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
