In a seminar held in Punjab, the Nepalese ambassador has met the Punjab tourism department’s prominent personalities to promote the tourism cooperation between Pakistan and Nepal.
The Nepali ambassador, Sewa Lamsal Adhikari, also addressed the seminar and said that Nepal is a land of opportunities for tourists; every year, many of the tourists from around the world visit Nepal.
According to her, the world’s highest mountainous peak, Mount Everest is in Nepal and every year, thousands of expeditionists visit Nepal for expidition.
Ms. Adhikari further said that Pakistan is also rich with natural tourist’s spots and also possesses one of the highest peaks K2.
Also both the countries have collectively 16 highest peaks and in this way, both the countries always remain the main attraction of the tourists across the globe.
Pakistan and Nepal, both, are the active members of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) and share almost the same culture and lifestyles.
However, the Nepalese ambassador emphasized that direct flights should be initiated between the big cities of both the states; as there are no direct flights from Pakistan to Nepal.
She also announced that Pakistanis will be given visa for arrival right at the airport and hoped that both the countries will promote their tourism by reciprocating the sending of tourists’ delegations to eachother.
“I am grateful to Punjab Government and Punjab Tourism for arranging the seminar and warm welcoming me,” the Nepali ambassador said at the end.
However, with Sewa Lamsal Adhikari, Pakistan’s Minister for Sports Jehangir Khanzada, Secretary Sports and Tourism Nayyar Iqbal, MD Tourism Ahmar Malik and a delegation from Nepal were also present in the seminar.
