Sports & Nepal
As a sports fan, not only the adventurous sports, but the globally loved sports such as cricket and football also can play the good part in bolstering the sports tourism in Nepal. The picture says it all, more than 20000 spectators gathered together at the TU ground on the occasion of a cricket match between Nepal and Namibia in WCLC just a few months earlier. This shows the love craze and passion of the people for the game. And watching that sight, I thought why can’t we attract the other international teams to play here in Nepal. We have already hosted a tribute game for Philip Hughes and if we can host. Lets say an Indo-Pak game as a neutral venue by improving infrastructures and proper facilities. We can do a lot of bolstering our sports tourism and tourism in overall.
As a stunning gift of nature, Nepal is progressing well in tourism, but the prospect of bolstering the tourism by developing it as a sports hub is just mouth watering. Simple homework must be done to make it a big reality. But if we do so, we will be seeing Nepal as a Center of Sports tourism in the near future.
