East Tourism Mart-2019, Dharan, 21-23rd September 2019
Miss Alina Magar, on behalf of “The East Tourism Mart 2019, Nepal Tourism Board “has sent an Invitation to the Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) to send interested Tour Operators from Bhutan to attend the “East Tourism Mart -2019″ in Dharan- Nepal, under this invitation few Tour Operators from Bhutan were sent to attend the mart, I the undersigned was one of the Tour Operators from Bhutan.
My experience & feedback of the East Tourism Mart- 2019 It was in September 2019, we visited Dharan, East Nepal to participate in the East Tourism Mart -2019. The experience was enriching, we were taken to various local sites to explore the local cultures & traditions.
Hospitality-The logistics & food were well arranged by the inviting Team, the rooms were clean and equipped with required amenities, the food was nice, for some of us it was our first visit to Nepal, we had overall a good experience.
Religious Site-We were taken to various religious sites, amongst all I personally found Haleshi is a site we can promote in Bhutan, to bring pilgrimages there, but the road leading to the site was not so good at that time. I am interested to promote Haleshi, in collaboration with Nepal Tourism Board.
Local Guide- Mr. Yub Raj Gurung (NTB staff) Was assigned to our team as a local guide, we thank Nepal Tourism Board for this support & consideration. Mr. Yub Raj was friendly & entertaining. We had a goodtime with him, he is a man with good sense of humor.
Outcome of the Visit – We couldn’t do the promotion of Nepal Tourism as it was marred by the Pandemic. We were hit by the Pandemic soon after our FAM trip .We have not forgotten the FAM trip, we will especially promote the Haleshi religious site. I seek the support of Nepal Tourism Board to help me in this matter.
Thanks – We thank “Nepal Tourism Board” and East Tourism Mart 2019 entire members. Mart committee president Mr. Bhabish Kumar Shrestha, my friends Mr. Basudev Baral & Miss Alina Magar for inviting us and giving us the opportunity to explore East Nepal. As said above, I am interested to Promote Haleshi and East Nepal, I therefore seek tourism entrepreneur’s and Nepal Tourism Board’s support in the matter.
