Nepal has been admired for it beauty, nature and off course the majestic mountains like Everest and Annapurna. After the achievement and success of Visit Nepal 1998 and Nepal Tourism Year 2011, the Tourism Board of Nepal presented Visit Nepal Campaign 2020. The Campaign was publicized in 2015 to be held in 2018 but was later postponed to 2020.
The mainstream media exposed Nepal as entirely devastated by the earthquake in 2015. The earthquake significantly affected the inflow of tourists in 2016 as the number of tourists halved compared with previous year.The year 2017 saw the inflow of tourists bounce back to the pre-earthquake numbers. The year 2017 saw 940,218 foreigners arrive to the country. Some came for recreational activities while some visited to support the people of affected areas and with the motive to help the country economically by visiting Nepal.
The Visit Nepal 2020 campaign was introduced to promote the Nepal Tourism Sector as a safe place to travel and only 12 of 75 districts were affected by the earthquake. The crawling upgrading activity of Tribhuvan International Airport and delayed construction of Gautam Buddha International Airport in Lumbini and improper transportation infrastructure led the Tourism Board to postpone the campaign to 2020.
