Tourism: Waking and Walking

Long live the restart of tourism!

Ashok Silwal

In the days when Nepal is canceling the restrictive rules for entering the country after the pandemic times and removing the quarantine, let’s spend a few words of hope and joy on the World Tourism Day, with the purpose to raise awareness on the role of tourism, affecting social, cultural, political and economic values worldwide.

Everything has been said and written about the disastrous situation in which this sector found itself: helpless victim of the voracity of a monster that has devoured people, workers, structures and infrastructures, stopped for months and months.

It devoured enthusiasms, trades, activities…… a sector brought to its knees…… but it failed to swallow the hope and the proverbial smiling patience of the Nepalese.

From Marco Polo in the 13th century through the ‘Grand Tour’ of the British aristocracy to Europe in 18th century and the journeys of David Livingstone through Africa in the 19th century… now many kinds of tourism have growth and have to ‘WAKING UP AND WALKING’ – as a documentary about Langtang after earthquake was titled.

Whether it is international tourism or domestic tourism…. religious, rural, touring, food and wine, congressual, cultural, photographical, adventure, bike………… in order to relaunch it, everything must be created, invented… Crossing boundaries or local excursions, regional trips or needing passports………

‘TRAVELLING A MILE IMPARTS MORE KNOWLEDGE THAN READING A MILE OF WRITTEN WORDS’, says a Chinese proverb.

May this day helps in getting the awareness that tourism is a very important socio-economic activity , bringing understanding, integration, infrastructures, employment opportunities… and more.

STRENGTH AND COURAGE to us and, to you, dear guests, Nepal lovers and others, friends…. we are waiting for you !

WELCOME TO NEPAL AGAIN!
