Kathmandu Tourism – An Overview of Nepal

Because travel in Kathmandu is relatively inexpensive to Western visitors a trip to one of the National parks where wild tigers still roam is a must. These magnificent beasts are a dying breed worldwide and any organization that attempts to preserve the tiger deserves as much support as we can give to them.

The mountainous scenery is worth the trip and if you are fortunate enough to see a tiger or two that is a welcome bonus.

The thing I like most about Nepal tourism is the fact that wherever you travel people are friendly and as interested in you as you are in them. In general they are not wealthy and will view all westerners as being wealthy. Having said this I have never been asked for money by any local wherever I visited so it also tells us that they are a proud and respectful race of people and deserve to be treated with the utmost respect in return.

Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world with almost one-third of its population living below the poverty line.

Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, providing a livelihood for three-fourths of the population and accounting for 38% of GDP.

Industrial activity mainly involves the processing of agricultural produce including jute, sugarcane, tobacco, and grain.

Security concerns relating to the Maoist conflict have led to a decrease in tourism, a key source of foreign exchange. [Authors note: The Maoists have never interfered with tourists and in some country areas were known to share a drink with tourists. However this problem has not existed since 2006]

Nepal has considerable scope for exploiting its potential in hydropower and tourism, areas of recent foreign investment interest. Prospects for foreign trade or investment in other sectors will remain poor, however, because of the small size of the economy, its technological backwardness, its remoteness, its landlocked geographic location and its susceptibility to natural disaster. Bumper crops, better security, improved transportation, and increased tourism pushed growth past 4% in 2008, after growth had hovered around 2.3% – the rate of population growth – for the previous three years.

In conclusion it is safe to say that Kathmandu tourism is still an exciting and safe experience in a nation that is struggling to improve its outlook.
