 Nepal Tourism Board Press Release July 2002

Tourist Arrivals in June 2002 (by air only)
Figures indicate growth

Figures indicate international visitors arriving in Nepal by air has increased for the first time in the last 12 months. Arrivals to Nepal had started plummeting since June 2001 in the recent year and continued till last month.

In 2002 June though a 35 percent growth was observed (over June 2001), contributed significantly by increase in Indian arrivals by 107%. Although third country arrival shows some decline (-12%), the pace has softened for the month. The total number of Indian visitors in June 2002 was 8,480 where as third country arrivals totaled to 5,361. This brings the total of 13,841 visitors in June 2002.

Among the third countries, visitors from Australia, Japan, China, Denmark, France and Republic of China (Taiwan) show growth. The other major third country markets like USA, UK and Germany however continues to suffer.

Improvement in Indian arrivals still seems to have been contributed by launch of "Fly-n-Win" scratch scheme to lure the Indian tourists by RNAC and NTB. On the other hand, the negative growth from third country markets has been the mixed output of various factors. One of the chief reasons being the negative travel advisories issued by various countries (like USA, UK, Canada, Germany and Japan) to travel to India. And since most of the tourists fly to Nepal via India and also India and Nepal are included in quite number of package tour, the arrival has been severely affected.

Highlights: International Visitor Arrivals for the month of June 2002

· India up 107% to 8,480 visitors
· Australia up 150% to 338 visitors
· UK down 10% to 491 visitors
· US down 26% to 957 visitors
· Germany down 30% to 257 visitors
· Japan up 68% to 658 visitors
