Nepal welcomes travelers with disabilities and is reaching out to trade and media


“It is important for us in Nepal to open up our Destination Nepal for accessible / Inclusive Tourism. It has been our calling to show the best of Nepal to the travelers with disabilities ( Visually impaired/ wheelchair bound / Hard of hearing). Needless to say, we have been successfully leading the responsible Tourism practices.”

These are the words of long time eTN Ambassador and eTurboNews Nepal Representative Pankaj Pradhananga of Four Seasons Travel and Tours in Kathmandu.

His tour operating company in Kathmandu is dedicated in providing quality tours for individuals and special interest groups to Nepal, India, Tibet and Bhutan. It focuses on the responsible Tourism practices.

Pankaj continues to explain: “With a team of over 25 qualified and experienced staff, we are in a position to provide uninterrupted services from the moment your clients arrive till the time they are ready to leave. Together with NEPAL TREKHOUSE, our sister company specializing in all levels of adventure, we are able to deliver a wide range of services in the Himalayan region.

Pankaj is looking for travel agencies interested in selling special interest groups and FIT’s to Nepal, specially he likes to get to meet agents interested to show the best of Nepal has to offer for the travelers with disabilities.

Pankaj will be in Washington DC, Chicago, Columbus, Boston and New York promoting Nepal in partnership with International Development Institute from 03 to 21 June, but would talk to anyone to further his vision for Nepal tourism.
