The glow of Pokhara is dim due to the lack of tourists during the tourist season. Entrepreneurs are worried that it has been two years since tourism workers became unemployed. Some entrepreneurs have left their businesses. Entrepreneurs started discussing how to save Pokhara’s tourism business after the second wave of the corona was stopped.

Entrepreneurs have come up with a plan to send ambassadors of different countries to Kathmandu to visit Pokhara and take a walk on an attractive route nearby. Along with the Ambassador, the heads of the United Nations in Nepal and the heads of various international organizations will also be involved. This proposal was handed over by Pokhara tourism businessmen to Gandaki Chief Minister Krishnachandra Nepali Pokhrel.

The businessman is confident that the visit of ambassadors and heads of foreign bodies to the tourist city of Pokhara will send a message that Nepal is safe not only in the country but also abroad. The Gandaki government liked the businessman’s proposal

The ambassador, their family, and the head of the foreign body believed that walking the footpaths in and around Pokhara would help keep the tourism sector afloat.

After that, the Gandaki government, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, invited the ambassadors of all the countries in Kathmandu to visit with their families.

Ambassadors of 11 different countries have arrived in Pokhara on Sunday for the trek. Including European Union, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Germany, Thailand, Finland, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Korea, EgyptSimilarly, the Secretary-General of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), UN Resident Head, Director General of ISIMOD, UNDP Nepal Director, UNDP, UNESCO, World Food Program, and other heads of missions have come to Pokhara for the program.
