Southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region will
work closely with Nepal to boost the tourism industry in the Himalayan region.

During a program held recently in Lhasa, Wang
Songping, deputy chief of Tibet’s tourism
administration, said attempts are being made to
launch day tours along the China-Nepal border.

He also pointed out the need of joint efforts of
travel agencies in Nepal and China for
promotional activities to attract more visitors
to the Himalayan region and promote package tours in both the countries.

Nepal has already simplified visa procedures for
Chinese tourists. Chinese passport holders who
take a direct bus service to Nepal could get visas at land ports in Tibet.

Wang and his Nepalese counterparts are also
learnt to be exploring a cross-Himalayan route
passing Kathmandu, in Nepal, and Tibet’s Jilung and Zham.

Speaking on the occasion, Naindra Upadhaya,
consul general of Nepal in Tibet, stated that a
large numbers of international tourists also visited Tibet by way of Nepal.

According to him, Nepal is targeting to draw some
100,000 Chinese tourists during the Nepal Tourism
Year (NTY) 2011.
