Nepal has been ranked as one of the best countries in the world to visit in 2017, according to Lonely Planet‘s annual Best in Travel list. The world‘s renowned travel guide has said that Nepal is the hottest destination for all budget travellers while the country came out on the fifth place among top 10 countries of the list. “Nepal is the world‘s number one destination in terms of service and value,â€ the Best in Travel 2017 says. It also adds that natural disasters can‘t even keep Nepal down for long. “The 2015 earthquakes caused devastation, but what is most striking from a traveller‘s perspective is not how much was lost but how much remains.â€ According to the leading travel guide brand, Nepal has all the skills required to repair monuments and infrastructure, but what it does need is income. “By visiting Nepal now and supporting local culture and people, you can help a nation rebuild and bounce back even stronger.â€ According to the list, the number of visitors is slowly recovering and the time is ripe to get back to Nepal‘s mighty mountains. “Wherever you go, you‘ll receive a warm welcome, as your visit brings much-needed income to communities getting back on their feet,â€ it says further. Lonely Planet‘s listing certainly inspires the stakeholders as the country has already announced to mark 2017 and 2018 as ‘Nepal Visit Year‘.
