A three-member delegation of Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) led by General Secretary Mohan Lamsal participated in the Korea World Travel Fair (KOFTA) 2012.
The fair was organized from 7-10 June in South Korean capital of Seoul. Nepali delegates distributed brochures of Nepal and promoted Visit Lumbini Year 2012, Lamsal said. â€œThough this is the first time has been represented in the fair, we found Nepal as a destination very popular among Korean people.â€
KOFTA is the biggest tourism fair in South Korea. Nepali Embassy in Korea also participated in the fair. â€œAt a time when the number of Korean tourists visiting Nepal is increasing, events like these being organized in different Korean cities will further help promote destination Nepal in Korea,â€ Lamsal quoted Nepali envoy to South Korea Kaman Singh Lama as saying.
