Nepal lies nestled between two Asian giants, China and India. Though a tiny nation, Nepal has eight of the highest peaks in the world including Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. Its rough mountainous terrain has been a favorite destination among adventurers from the time the country first opened its door to tourists in the sixties. While the mighty Himalayan Mountains rise like sentinels in the north, the landscape tapers down to a flat, steamy plain in the south, locally known as the Terai belt. Like its diverse landscape, the country is a melting-pot of diverse cultures and ethnicities. With a history that dates back to several millennia, Nepal is a repository of an ancient and rich cultural heritage. Known as Lord Buddha’s birthplace, the country is home to 10 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and an assorted variety of endangered Himalayan flora and fauna. Though Nepal was known as a ‘Himalayan Kingdom’ it ceased being a ‘kingdom’ after monarchy was abolished in 2008 and the country was declared a Federal Democratic Republic by a government elected by the people. Kathmandu, the country’s capital, has the only international airport in the country. Overland, one can enter Nepal via India or Tibet. The nation’s lingua franca is Nepali or Khaskura and the currency is Nepalese Rupee. Following a ‘tourist-friendly’ policy, the country offers Visa to tourists on arrival.
NEPAL FOR MICE
With fascinating natural beauty, amazing adventure sites, world-class hotels and conference venues, Nepal is the perfect destination for MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) in South Asia.
Plan your event in picturesque Pokhara, a lakeside resort with tranquil lakes and modern resorts or in vibrant Kathmandu – a mélange of medieval cities, energetic urban hubs and plush hotels. Be different and gear up for a challenge. Motivate your team to head to Everest Region. Reconnect with your team or host a unique event under the backdrop of the awe-inspiring Mount Everest and other Himalayan giants in luxurious mountain resorts or chateaus. Or opt for jungle adventure and get together at Chitwan’s wildlife sanctuary, with its well-appointed jungle lodges. Or maybe, choose inner harmony and inner peace, and plan your event at the sacred spaces of Lumbini, with its ancient temples, monasteries and comfortable hotels. Nepal offers diverse locales (venues) to hold your type of MICE event. To make your MICE event a memorable, one-of-a kind event, plan it with Incentive Holidays, the MICE specialist in Nepal.
(Note: Only hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara have the resources and infrastructure to cater to a large number of guests or delegates for large scale conferences and events.)
