Professional mountaineers are great promoters of Nepal. They have a deep connection to the Himalayas, and Nepal recognises the value they have had in bringing tourism into the country. Twenty Two national and international mountaineers are currently our Tourism Goodwill Ambassadors, recognised by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation and the Nepal Tourism Board. They were felicitated in a program on June 26, 2015.
