British Ambassador Nicola Politt has cycled around Begnas at Pokhara-31. Coordinated by Cycle City Pokhara and organized by the Strengthening Project, she cycled about 10 kilometers to Begnas on Monday morning.
Homnath Gahre, the coordinator of the strong project Pokhara, said that she had come to Pokhara to participate in the Carbon Neutral Development Path program of the Pokhara Metropolitan City.
According to him, Politt cycled with 20 members of Cycle City on Monday morning with a view of touring various lakes in Lekhnath. “Monday morning was a lot of fun. Seeing the beautiful view of the fishtail made the bicycle trip around Beganas very exciting and unforgettable for me, “said She.
Stating that Covid-19 has seriously affected the tourism sector globally, she also expressed confidence that the number of tourists in Nepal will increase now that the visa protocol is being loosened and the corona infection rate is decreasing.
She said, “Nepal is very beautiful, the intimacy of the people here is very attractive. As Corona dwindles, Pokhara will become the city of choice for many. ” She said that there are many beautiful places in Nepal and it is necessary to promote them. She expressed confidence that tourism would be promoted if the tourists could be informed about the bicycle route and bicycle-friendly infrastructure could be built.
On the occasion, she said that Nepal-Briton’s diplomatic relations were very good and their attitude towards Nepal in the UK was very positive. She said that British people love to see the highest mountains of Nepal and to climb mountains.
Ambassador Politt said that the British government was also concerned about the impact of climate change on Nepal’s Himalayan region. Chairman of Cycle City Pokhara, Abhishek Koirala, informed that he had cycled from Lamaswaran of Lekhnath to Ramdeviganas and Sundaridanda.
He expressed confidence that the ambassador’s bicycle tour would play a positive role in promoting tourism in the region. “He shared a lot of fun experiences with us during cycling. It made us very excited. ” According to Koirala, the ambassador had shown interest after getting information about the bicycle route after he saw the picture of Cycle City Secretary Jay Gurung posting a picture of him cycling in and around Begnas on Twitter some time ago.
Cycle City has been organizing the ‘New Place, One Destination’ program in the new year along with ‘Tour the Pokhara’ to promote Pokhara. As Pokhara is a tourist city, bicycle stands have been set up at 21 different places in Pokhara.
Similarly, there are more than 100 members in the Cycle City, who have been providing assistance to flood and landslide victims, tree planting, blood donation, and other social and environment-friendly programs. He informed that he is also ready to work on the project of the 74 km cycle route of Sattal.
