Challenges and Opportunities of Tourism.

Trekking tips

Going back to the History, trekking was first initiated by Colonel Jimmy Roberts in 1965 who was a former Gurkha officer and the Military specializer at the Embassy of Britain in Nepal. Mr. Robert spent most of his time in Nepal experiencing and exploring the hills. He propounded the idea of trekking with tents, Sherpas as guide and cooks that brought revolution in trekking sector. The idea that he introduced helped Nepal establish itself as the famous country for Trekking and made available for the world wide community. The idea of Mr. Robert is nowadays taken in a well-established manner.

In the present context, the trekking tourism is growing rapidly. So, the are lots of challenges and opportunities in the trekking sectors in Nepal.

Tourism is also one of the sources of national income but the lack of resources and planning is making it backward. After the disastrous earthquake in Nepal, the number of tourists coming is in decreasing trend. The heritages sites and ancient places have been destroyed. If the government takes a step to improve and plan for the proper infrastructure development with the reconstruction of the destroyed areas then we may see the positive changes in trekking tourism. Moreover, when the tourists arrive at the international airport, they have to face problems waiting in line for the luggage, no proper facilities of the rest room and also the employee is less literate about the e-ticketing. Similarly, the roads are still to be made in many parts of Nepal. Due to the unmanaged roads, the pollution is increasing which is one of most faced problem nowadays. Likewise, many of the trekking offices have guides who are not licensed and are uneducated. This may lead to the difficulty for tourists to understand and adapt themselves easily in the new place.

With the challenges, there are opportunities in trekking tourism sector too. The tourism development agencies like SNV, Adam Smith International etc have shown many opportunities in trekking tourism sector. Many projects related to these sectors have been implemented as well as being in the stage of implementation. There are many trekking routes which we can travel by vehicles. Such places are being promoted. Furthermore, still there a lot of places in Nepal which are still to be explored or are virgin places. Those beautiful places should be figured out and should be promoted.
