As Nepali tourism industry braces itself for the year’s peak season, a great piece of news has come along. Rough Guides, a UK based travel guidebook and reference publisher, has listed Nepal as the number one destination for tourists for the year 2016! Nepal ranks first in the list of “Top 10 Countries to Travel in 2016” published in their site.

Rough Guides is owned by Penguin Random House, which is one of the biggest names in publishing business. They have a wide outreach and followed religiously by travel enthusiasts around the world. As such, Nepal being ranked number one in their travel guidebook is sure to reach a wide audience. Endorsements do not come bigger than this and Nepali tourism industry is humbled by such opinion of one of the leading travel guidebooks of the world.

The short description mentions the fact that,“Thoughtfully spent tourist dollars will go a long way here; choosing independent homestays and grass roots tour companies ensures money ends up in local pockets. With varied landscapes – from the Himalayas to jungles inhabited by tigers, elephants and rhinos – Nepal should be your first choice for travel in 2016.” This highlights the fact that grass roots tour companies are more than competent to provide some of the top notch services and best trekking and tour packages in Nepal.

We, at Regulus Treks and Expeditions, are enthused by such a great endorsement from Rough Guides. Our services and packages are independent of any such endorsements but we cannot hide the fact that we are overjoyed by such a major reference in one of the premier publications in the field of travel business. We promise that we will make every effort to ensure that Rough Guides will again have Nepal as its top destination for the year 2017!
