Nepal has become a world leader in tourism, as its tourist industry continues to expand.
The country now ranks fourth globally in the number of international visitors and second in the international tourism spending.
According to the International Tourism Organization (ITO), in 2014 Nepal received a total of $1.7 billion in international tourism dollars.
The ITO, which represents more than 2,500 member states, also estimates that the number in tourism will reach $6.8 billion by 2019.
The country is also growing fast as an international destination, with the number spending on its tourism in the past 12 months more than doubling from the same period in 2013.
In 2016, the number visited Nepal rose by almost 50 per cent to 6.7 million.
The growth is not limited to Nepal.
The government is also trying to improve infrastructure, as well as encourage foreign investment.
The new tourist arrivals have brought new opportunities for the tourism industry, said Vicky Phu, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Tourism.
“Tourism is the cornerstone of our economy and we are committed to creating jobs, boosting tourism and expanding the country’s tourism infrastructure,” she said.
Tourism and tourism services are already a big business in the Kathmandu Valley.
A recent study by the Nepali Chamber of Commerce and Industry showed that the sector generated an estimated $100 million in tourism revenues in the last three years, and more than half of that was coming from Nepal.
Phu said the government has created a Tourism Investment Fund, with an investment of $50 million, to help boost the industry.
Tourists are expected to spend an average of $3,500 per visit, according to the ITO.
This amount is about a third of what most other countries spend, and the average cost of a day trip is about $3.10.
Phu said this is in line with other global destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the United States.
While there is a lot of demand for accommodation, there is also a need for more accessible and affordable accommodation.
The Government of Nepal has set up the “New Kathmandue Hotel” initiative, which aims to provide a range of affordable accommodation, including rooms for one person, in hotels that are being developed and operated by Nepali companies.
The project is also targeting foreign travelers, who can book hotels at hotels that have been designed by local companies.
“We are also looking to offer affordable accommodation for travellers from the US and Europe to help our industry develop,” Phu told The Hindu.
The hotel in Kathmandua is one of a number of projects that have also been implemented in Kathmai.
There are also more than 200 hotel projects under construction in the area.
The government is investing in infrastructure, such as roads, railways and airports, to cater for the growing tourist demand.
There have been a number, like the one in Kathkota, which was launched in January to make travel easier and safer.
In addition to hotels, the government is now also constructing a series of roads, such a major one that is currently being constructed.
The road, which will stretch for over 100 kilometers, will connect to other major tourist destinations in the region.
The National Tourism Corporation of Nepal (NTNC) is also building a road network.
In April, NTNC announced that the country had become the first in the world to achieve 100 per cent completion of its road network in less than two years.NTNC chief executive officer Sankaran Pandey said that the goal of the road project is to create new opportunities in tourism.
“There is a demand for better connectivity and we want to make it easier for people to visit places, to get to places, from different parts of the country,” he said.
Phut, the director general of NTNC, said the road network is also designed to ease traffic congestion and reduce travel time.
“The road is designed to help ease traffic and increase the speed of travel,” he told The Hindus.
The NTNC is also planning to open five new national airports in the next five years.
The NTNC’s latest plan to promote tourism in Nepal was announced in May.
Phut said the NTNC has made it a priority to promote travel, but that it also has to be careful not to be too ambitious.
“The NTN is a global organization and the challenge we face is to make sure that our people have opportunities to travel abroad,” he added.
In the past, Nepal has been criticised for poor management of its tourism industry.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, there are more than 5,000 cases of drug trafficking in Nepal.
Phudpa Naidu, the chairperson of the UN’s Drug Commission, said Nepal has the highest rates of drug-related crime in the country.
According of the latest report from the UN Office on Drug Control and Crime (UNODC), Nepal has a drug problem of 1,821.7 cases
