KARNALI FOR TOURISM

Posted On:03 Apr,2017

At a time when the tourism industry in Nepal seems well intent on marking Tourism Year 2011, a group of four Nepali youths—Prem KC, Diwas Lamichhane, Amrit Pahari and Manish Pahari—have taken something of a commendable initiative. All four work in the trekking business, and with the skills and knowledge afforded to them by their profession, they decided it was time to give some well-deserved attention to the Karnali region. Any visitor to Karnali will testify to its natural beauty, but the locals here are largely found living in abject poverty. Part of the reason for this and also part of the reason why the Tourism Year campaign hasn’t seen the light of day in Karnali itself, is owing to what the group believes is the lackluster attitude of the government towards the people and the possibilities of the region. “We came to the realisation that the government has done virtually nothing to promote tourism in remote places like this,” KC...

Posted On:03 Apr,2017

A 18-year-old boy from the Indian city of Noida, Arjun Vajpayee has successfully scaled the 8,163-metre-high Mount Manaslu, which is also known as Killer Mountain. Earlier, Vajpayee has successfully climbed the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest. The Asian Trekking Inter-Mount Manaslu Expedition Autumn, 2011 organised the mountaineering expedition coinciding with the Nepal Tourism Year. Out on an odyssey to climb most of the 8,000-metre peaks in the world, Vajpayee probably became the world’s youngest mountaineer to reach the top of the world’s eighth-highest peak, early Tuesday morning, reports said quoting Ang Tshering Sherpa, the chairman of Asian Trekking Pvt. Ltd. The Noida schoolboy had summited Mt. Everest (8,848 m), the highest peak in the world, in May 2010, but lost the race to a 14-year-old American boy to be the youngest to step atop the summit. But not to lose morale, Vajpayee has since also climbed Everest’s neigh... Read More

Austrian climber Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner reaches 14 Himalayan peaks above 8,000m An Austrian has become the first woman to reach all 14 Himalayan summits above 8,000m (26,000 ft) without bottled oxygen. Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, 40, set the record after conquering the treacherous K2. “She is over the moon,” he said on Mrs Kaltenbrunner’s website. Mrs Kaltenbrunner, a nurse, is only the third woman to reach all 14 highest summits, but the first two climbers used artificial oxygen. “SUMMIT!!! At 6:18pm local time, Gerlinde reached the summit of K2,” her husband Ralf Dujmovits said on the climber’s website on Tuesday.

Posted On:03 Apr,2017

Mustang among top 3 regions to travel in 2013 Author: Media Center Popular travel guidebook Lonely Planet has included Mustang among the top three regions to travel in 2013. Earlier, Lonely Plant had featured Nepal as one of the top ten Best Value Destinations for 2013. “It is a last chance to see this ´forbidden kingdom´ as the completion of a road connection Mustang to China in the north and the rest of Nepal to the south will make all the difference to this remote region,” Lonely Planet states. In Best Value Destinations 2013, Lonely Plant had earlier said that with number of visitors steadily rising, Nepal remains a tremendous option for budget travelers.

Despite being the cheapest destination, the travel guidebook acknowledged that Nepal is the best-value spot for Himalayan hiking and is definitely a contender for offering the most aston...

Family Holiday time:Mustang Trekking

Posted On:14 Mar,2017

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescrib...
