Tourism is recognised as one of the largest and rapidly expanding industry sectors in the world. This industry is not just one of the largest industries but also the largest source of foreign exchange and revenue for Nepal, which is still reeling from last year’s devastating earthquake.

As many as one million tourists visit Nepal every year, contributing to the major expansion in a number of hotels. The number of hotels in Nepal has crossed 1,000, according to the Ministry of Tourism.
