Visit Nepal '98 beckons tourists to see the exotic

Date Posted: 1998-10-09

Few adventurers can lay claim to the fact that they have trekked through the Nepalese Himalayas. Now, you can have the chance of visiting Nepal while you're in Japan, with the official 'Visit Nepal '98' campaign. For the first time, a direct flight from Naha to Kathmandu can bring you and yours to the breathtaking beauty and rich culture of this mountain kingdom. Okinawa Tourist Service (OTS), who will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, is working in conjunction with the campaign committee and can provide any information you need about the flight and other activities available in Nepal.

Rudra Kumar Nepal, First Secretary of the Royal Nepalese Embassy, recently visited Okinawa to provide more information about the campaign to Okinawa Tourist Service (OTS). "The numbers of Japanese tourists visiting Nepal has increased dramatically in the past three years," Nepal said. "Japanese tourists are now form our largest group of visitors to Nepal." He went on to explain that they are striving to increase the number of tourists in other areas of the world as well. One important group he mentioned would be American service men and women and their families stationed in the Far East.

Perhaps you'll be the first in your family, or your hometown, to climb Mt. Everest. Or take an elephant-back safari through Nepal's national parks, where you'll be greeted with glimpses of one-horned rhinoceroses, wild boars, or a snow leopard. Whether your interests are in river rafting or trekking, a visit to Nepal may be the greatest of your life. Call OTS at 933-1152/1153 today to reserve your seat on the Okinawa's first direct flight to Kathmandu.
