Arrivals are increasing steadily

NTB has announced that arrivals have increased in this month compared to a similar period last year. I am not surprised that this is in double digits, 27% it says. You got to remember that tourist arrivals had dipped to 1988 levels in 2001, taking tourism arrivals back by 13 years... now that is looking up, it is hardly surprising that we have double digit growth.

But the growth is encouraging, I can ensure you. We have more and more enquiries and more people are interested to come in. Looks like the image of Nepal is getting better, even with its internal political instability.
