A three day tourism fair was organized recently in Biratnagar to promote places of tourist interest and home stay in eastern Nepal. Promoted as Eastern Regional Tourism Fair 2012 , the fair was inaugurated by Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation Lokendra Bista Magar on 22nd March, 2012. Eastern Nepal is made up of high mountains : Kanchenjunga and Everest, tea growing belt and the low lying Terai area. Though the high mountain villages in Everest Region have largely benefitted from tourism, the same cannot be said about the other areas. The fair sought to promote those hidden places having potential to become popular tourism destinations.

Explore Himalaya had recently organized a Spring trek to Gokyo , Kala Patthar & Everest Base Camp for Mariko Kawabata & Yukako Sato from Japan and their Nepalese friend Sushil Koirala. With our experienced and knowledgeable guide Lamababu guiding them through the rough Everest trail, the trio completed their trek without a hitch. According to Mariko & Yukako the supportive crew made their adventure a truly ‘once-in-a-lifetime experience’. Here’s what they had to say:
“ Thanks to Lambabu and his excellent professionalism, we have completed our trekking trip as per the plan. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for choosing Lambabu as our guide. Lambabu has been the best guide we could ever dream of having – his organizational skills and knowledge of the region were beyond reproach. He was always polite, honest, and so pleasant. We really enjoyed his company, as well as the two crews – who were also as pleasant and helpful as Lambabu. Lambabu chose the best porters/assistants as we could imagine of having, and the way he dealt with them were also very nice and we really liked it. It is also worth noting that he paid attention to our health throughout the trek, and despite the fact that two of us got mild altitude sickness, with his advice and timely medication, we all managed to trek in good health and spirits. Lambabu was also attentive to our demands – such as the need for decent toilets and accomodation. We are sure that it was not always easy. All in all, we are all very happy about the trekking trip we had – it was once in a life-time experience for sure. Thank you so much for organizing this trip for us! We hope to go for another trekking trip in future with your company, and hopefully once again with Lambabu and his crews. Thank you again & best regards, Mariko and Yukako”
