Nepal is one of the best travels and tour destinations in the world. Blessed with countless gifts of nature, Nepal is rich in natural beauty and destinations which makes it no surprise that Nepal is often considered as one of the best places to travel.
In order to attract other interested travelers, the campaign was declared by Nepal Government with the Nepal Tourism Board. Its rich cultural heritage, wonderful religious history, and luxurious beauty of the landscapes have attracted many travel enthusiasts over the past.
Nepal's tourism sector is growing. As a result, many new trekking trails are being opened. The older ones are also being renovated as well as restructured so that traveling gets easier. Therefore, Visit Nepal 2020 is an attempt to shed light on the prospect of tourism in Nepal.
Continuing the spirit of developing Tourism, 2020 is now the dedicated ‘New Tourism Year’ for Federal Nepal, targeting two million tourist arrivals. As the slogan of the Visit Nepal 2020 campaign is ‘Lifetime Experience ‘we will be introducing new activities that will provide amazing experience to visitors for a lifetime. We will concentrate on providing new activities along with new experiences to travelers during the campaign period.
For Visit Nepal 2020, the government is trying to promote Nepal in a unique way. Nepal is always positioned as the country of mountains and only for hardcore adventure travelers, but we have much more to offer. Nepal is equally rich in cultural segments into the bargain, which is why for Visit Nepal 2020 more focus is being given into the direction of promoting the cultural heritage and traditions.
New trends are visible in the tourism field worldwide. Earlier, there used to be fixed itineraries and activities for fixed destinations. Now travelers are looking for flexibility and experiences. Thus, the theme “Visit Nepal 2020: Lifetime Experiences
Nepal is fifth amid the Top 10 countries to visit in the world and number one in Best Valued Destination in the World. Why wouldn’t they be, Nepal boasts pristine natural beauty, sky-high Himalayas Range and endless culture and traditions spread out all over the country.
We have summoned the following objectives that the campaign meets.
First and foremost, a solid framework that aims to preserve the tourist side is to be designed.
The academic courses for tourism and hotel management are to be upgraded to uplift tourism.
Plans are to be incorporated to make the Tourism Act more vibrant, relevant and contextual.
The extension of Tribhuvan International Airport and construction of Gautam Buddha Airport in Bhairahawa is scheduled to complete before the Visit Nepal Year.
The construction and renovation of world heritage sites are to be completed before 2020
The objectives have already been classified and the plans are up and running. The government of Nepal has targeted to bring 2 million tourists in 2020.
Since the increased number of tourists cannot be accommodated in the existing hotels, the private hotel sector has initiated plans for adding 4000 new rooms in four and five-star hotels in major cities of Nepal ie Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. In addition to that, new international chain hotels are planned to operate in order to accommodate the large invasion of tourists.
Nepal has a single international airport at Kathmandu. Before 2020, there are plans made to operate two new international Airports at Pokhara and Lumbini. Provision of multiple international airports will allow flexibility to tourists and add up to the perspective of “visit Nepal 2020” success.

The best possible way to know Nepal and the people in Nepal is through their cuisine. since the food habits of people differ depending on the region, Nepal doesn't have one clear cooking style. Therefore, Nepali cuisine consists of a variety based on ethnicity and climate relating to Nepal’s cultural and geographical diversity.
The regular Nepali meal is Dal(lentils, peas, and beans), Bhat (boiled rice) and Tarkari(curried vegetables) accompanied by Achar(spicy pickle). Acquired from the Tibetians, Momos(steamed dumplings) deserve a mention as one of the most popular snacks among Nepalis with being said that “ you are not a Nepali if you don't like momos”. Rotis(flatbread) and Dhido(boiled flours) along with Gundruk (fermented green vegetable) also make meals in some homes, especially in rural areas.
Newari cuisine is considered to be one of the most delicious foods with intense flavoring. Newa cuisine features dishes for every edible part of buffalo meat which makes Newari food a unique subset of Nepali cuisine.
