Nepal Tourism Year 2011’s Main Organizing Committee introduced four different tourism products on 14th January, during the inaugural ceremony of NTY 2011. The four products are The Great Himalayan Trail (GHT), Mighty East, Wild West Triangle and Terai Tourism.
As the name suggests, The Great Himalayan Trail is the world’s longest and highest trekking trail. It stretches from Humla in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. To complete the Great Himalayan Trail one needs to take an ardous 150 days trek. Mighty East offers packages related to adventure tourism – trekking, mountaineering and travel along the ridges of the mighty Himalayan peaks located in Eastern Nepal.
Wild West Triangle has been launched to promote tourism in the mid and far-western regions of Nepal. It incorporates tours to three protected areas – Bardiya National Park in Bardiya district, Rara National Park in Mugu and Shuklaphanta Wildlife Reserve in Kanchanpur. Terai Tourism promotes religious, historical and archaeological sites in the southern Terai plains.
The meeting and handling was very good. Tour & trek guides and support staff were excellent. The hotels were also very good.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
As an avid Himalyan trekker I find the GHT is a fantastic project that should open the door to trekking in more remote area of Nepal.
Not to mention bringing more cash to poorer areas of the Nepal region.
