Nepal Tourism Board organised a Press Meet with His Excellency Mr. Michel Jolivet, Ambassador of France to Nepal and His Excellency Mr. Keith Broomfield, Ambassador of United Kingdom to Nepal to share their experience of the trek they did recently. A galaxy of both national and international journalists were gathered to listen the trekking tales of the diplomats who visited remote villages of Nepal in Everest and Annapurna Region respectively.



Addressing the media, His Excellency Mr. Michel Jolivet, French Ambassador to Nepal recalled his unique experience that he accumulated during his trekking as a layman to Everest Region which he was longing to visit for a long time. Mesmerized by his trip, he praised the beauty of the Everest Region and its people saying that he thoroughly enjoyed the trek and did not face any kind of hassles during his trek. He went through Goyko Lake, covering the region which is less travelled by the trekkers because of difficult terrain and snow. When His Excellency reached Namche, he was much enthused to trek in the new route and explore the beauty of the region. He is convinced that it is safe to trek in the Everest Region reiterating his earlier statement that If French Ambassador can trek to Everest Region, everybody can. He said that now he is writing travelogue of his trek which can be seen in the website of French Embassy of Nepal in near future.

Earlier, His Excellency Mr. Keith Broomfield, British Ambassador to Nepal explained in detail his trekking experience of Nar and Phu Village of Manang district. He cherished the every moment of his trek as the memorable one as this was his third visit to Annapurna Region.



He was enthralled to see the unspoiled beauty of these two villages situated on the fringe of Nepal-Tibet(China) border. He further said if there is good infrastructure, more tourists can enjoy the pristine beauty of these places. The Nar and Phu valleys are newly opened, spectacular regions of ethnically- Tibetan inhabitants. He said the trek to Nar and Phu would provide the combine experience to see high snow capped peaks and feel desert alpine climate at the same time. This region was first explored by Tillman in the 1950s. It was closed to trekkers until late 2002. He emphatically said that he did not face any security problem throughout his trek and encouraged the trekkers to explore this area which provides totally new experience to them.



Thanking both of them, Mr. Tek Bahadur Dangi, CEO of Nepal Tourism Board said that he believed the Ambassadors` recent trek would trigger the arrivals in upcoming days and give positive message to the world that Nepal is a safe destination for all kind of travellers.
