Chapter - I 1.1. Introduction 1.2. General background The word “Tourism” is derived from the French word “Tourisme” which originate in the 19th century. The word was popularised in the 1930‟s, but the significance was not fully
  13. 13. realized until today when the “tourism” has a wider meaning and significance. The word “tourism” has several meanings. In general, Webster‟s new international dictionary defines it as “Travelling For Recreational.” One of the earliest definitions of tourism was provided by the Austrian economist in 1910, who defined it as, “bob total of operators. Mainly of an economic nature, which directly relate to the entry, stay and movement of foreigners inside and outside a certain country, city or a region.” The united nations classified three forms of tourism in 1994 in its recommendation on Tourism statistics” Domestic tourism which involves residents of the given country travelling only within this country; involving non residents travelling in the given country; and outbound tourism, involving residents travelling in another country. Tourism is the various business and industrial activities such as services of hotel and travel agent, transport services and communication, construction of road, drinking water and sewerage system, electricity, poultry production and so-on. Thus as defined by Sir Eric Francklin “Tourism is an industry with extensive significance involving several forms of business activity and industry moreover that will bring greater and greater wealth to the countries favoured by tourists.” Tourism activity generates foreign exchange, which helps the nation to correct their adverse balance of international trade; it confers many other economic benefits to the hosting nations such as increase in their purchasing power, generation of employment and correction of regional disparities. It is considered development panacea for the economically depressed peripheral regions, having free and abundant resources of nature viz. sparkling sun and long stretch of sea beaches scenic mountains and wild lands. In present days situation tourism has occupied pivotal role for the economic strength of the developing as well as developed countries. Tourism is often regarded as invisible export. The
  14. 14. reason behind this today many countries accumulate large amount in foreign currency by successfully encouraging foreign visitors to travel inside their countries. It is one of the main significant Medias to earn foreign exchange and to promote international brotherhood and co- existence. In milieu of Nepal, Tourism industry has even greater role to play, as there is more potentiality of proper economic development in such country from it. Agricultural sector has the pre-dominant position in the national economy. Although the agro-dominated economy, Nepal has not earned foreign exchange significantly from this sector yet, the traditional system of our agriculture can no way ensure rapid economic growth of the country. Tourism has been identified as an important source of foreign exchange earnings, as industry creating employment opportunities; plus an industry, which is helping to fulfil the gap of unfavourable balance of payment in international trade. It has been playing a pivotal role in socio-economic sector of the most of the nations are attracted to this industry and trying their best to strengthen economic life and socio life by promoting tourism in the country. Hence, tourism is a multi-faceted industry. Overall, it plays a vital role in the process of national development, which is boon to country like Nepal with other limited resources. 1.3. Evolution of tourism in Nepal Tourism in the part was limited to those who could travel on foot or teak, in the face of great natural hazards because of the lack of facilities such as road, communication network and crude means of transport. Yet in those days though Nepal a land locked country tourism existed in some way or other. The development of arts, architecture, culture and religion drew the attention of foreign travellers, mostly scholars and people with missionary zeal. Development of tourism in Nepal is divided into four stages. They are follows:
  15. 15. 1. Early development 2. Recorded history to before unification of the country 3. After the unification of the country to the dawn of democracy 4. After the dawn of democracy Tourism is said to be initiated during the Gopals, the first ruling dynasty in Nepal. Being impressed by Nepalese art and architecture, many famous people visited Nepal during the ruling period of Lichhivis, Mallas and Ranas , but practically, tourism in Nepal was initiated after the revolution of 1951. The people were liberated and the greats of Nepal were opened still wider for all foreign visitors. With the establishment of Royal Nepal Airlines Corporation, the Tourist inflow has increased considerably. New hotels, travel agency and restaurants were opened to promote tourism. From the point of view of tourism, the great revolution of 1951 was a boon for Nepal. In realization of this fact, ministry of Tourism and civil aviation was established, in order to develop tourism by government sector. Also, NATA and HAN played a vital role in development of tourism from its initial stage of the present stage. In the present contest, the government and private sector jointly trying to develop the infrastructure for the tourism Nepal Tourism Board was established, many international chain of hotels were entered and organised different tourism promotional activities such as “Visit Nepal 98” and “Nepal Tourism Year 2011” and in addition different festivals were organised, which represents “Nepal as World of its own.” 1.4. Significance of the study
  16. 16. Nepal is one of the famous tourist destinations of the work with the variety of the interesting thing to see and do. It has many exiting things to see and adventurous thing to do as well as many historical things to learn. From the Himalayan mountains, including the top of the world Mt. Everest and many other peaks to the beautiful valleys full of cultural heritage and the forest full of rate wild lives, birds, historical temple and places with in describable sculptures and legend gives the tourist a fascinating mix of impressing natural beauty with message from a rich ancient civilization. Trekking, white water rafting, sightseeing and mountaineering are other adventurous tourist activities performed in Nepal. The study is focused on trend of tourist arrival in Nepal. Every year many tourists visited in Nepal for different purpose from different country and also different age groups and sex wise visitors are visited Nepal. But the numbers of visitors are fluctuating in different years. Therefore from this study we can find total tourist arrivals and length of their stay. Similarly, we can find arrival by sex, by age groups, by continents, by purpose of visit and also we can analysis the earning trend of foreign currency from tourism sector over the last 11 years. 1.5. Objective of study The main objectives of the present study are: Ø To study the tourist arrival trend Ø To analyse the factors affecting tourist arrival trend Ø To study the contribution of tourism in our economy Ø To assess the problem and challenges faced by the Nepalese tourism sector
  17. 17. Ø To suggest measures for improvement of tourist industry 1.6. Methodology This dissertation is mainly based on secondary data, which are collected from Nepal Tourism Board. Data is presented on table and interpretation is also done. 1.7. Limitation of the study The study is mainly focused in only on trend of tourist arrival influx in Nepal, in spite of its wide focus due to lack of time. Due to same reason the project report is mainly based on secondary data provided from Nepal Tourism Board from the year 2000-2010 and MOCTCA, Nepal.
  18. 18. 2. Chapter-II 2.1.Presentation and analysis of data 2.2.Presentation and analysis of data The main objective of this chapter is to present and analysis all the information and collected data gets the result to meet the objectives of the study. A) Tourist arrival by Air and land Table 1: Tourists Arrival by Air and Land YEAR TOTAL BY AIR % OF TOTAL BY LAND % OF TOTAL 2000 463646 376914 81.3 86732 18.7 2001 361237 299514 82.9 61723 17.1 2002 275468 218660 79.4 56808 20.6 2003 338132 275438 81.5 62694 18.5 2004 385297 297335 77.2 87962 22.8 2005 375398 277346 73.9 98052 26.1 2006 383926 283819 73.9 100107 26.1 2007 526705 360713 68.5 165992 31.5 2008 500277 374661 74.9 125616 25.1

From the analysis of above table we find that number of tourist arrived by air is more than tourist arrived by land. From 2000 the arrival of tourist no increasing in decreasing rate, and from 2003-2005 the number of tourist arrival is increasing and again in 2005 it is decreasing. Then the ratio is going on increasing and up to 2008. There are various factors for this ups and down in the arrival of tourist, such as great terrorist attack in New York, America again the reinstitution of peace between Maoist and seven political parties. Figure 1: Tourist Arrival by Air and Land
  20. 20. From the above figure 1 we can find out that total no of tourist arrival is higher and also that the tourist arrival through land is more than tourist arrived by air. Tourist arrival in Nepal is in increasing trend barring some exception in the year 2000, 2001, and 2002. This is quite obvious from the statistics as presented in table 1 and figure 1. If we take a cursory glance of the tourist‟s arrival in Nepal during the past three decades, we should be much optimistic on our tourism industry. This industry has witnessed series of successful year registering number of tourists every year occasions till 1999. But if we go through year 2000, the tourism industry saw drastic fall of tourist arrival in the year 2001, 2002, and 2003 respectively. From the very beginning to till date, the number of tourists arrival by air has always dominant to that by land except in the year2008. The fall in tourist numbers after 2008 can be attributed to the various events that took place internationally and domestic front. Hijacking of Indian Airlines on 24th December 1999 affected the arrival of Indian tourist in 2001. The terrorist attack in September, 11, 2001 had a huge impact in tourism industry throughout the world. International Medias coverage on political disturbance in Nepal had a very negative impact among the potential tourist to Nepal. Environment degradation, garbage problem in Kathmandu and other tourist areas, fear of Maoist, more strikes directly affect in tourism. It shows the internal and external disturbances highly influence visitor arrivals in Nepal and though Nepal may not have much control over externalities; we should manage and control internal factors if we really want to develop tourism steady.

  22. 22. From the above figure we can analysed that the male tourist arrival is increasing up to 2001 and rapidly decreasing up to 2003. Since the male tourist arrival is more always than female tourists. In 2001 the percentage of male tourists is 59.1% and female tourists are 40.9%. In 2005 the percentage of male tourists is 68.7% which is greatest percentage of this decade where the female tourist‟s arrival percentage is 31.3% and it is the least percentage. In 2007 the female tourists arrival percentage is highest i.e. 44.8% which is the highest percentage of the analysed decade, hence male tourists arrival is least comparatively to female even the number is higher. In 2010 the male tourist arrival percentage is 60% and female is 40%. The female visitor‟s percentage seems weaker than the male visitors. There may be many reasons to this trend. Some of them are insecurity, attitudes and the geographical status of Nepal. Most of the tourist in Nepal comes to Hiking, trekking, mountaineering, rafting and other adventure tourism in which the female tourists have less interest.

From this we can find out that the most age of travelling is 31-45. In overall the above fig shows that the age limits 31-45. The tourist arrival is decreasing in 2004 and from here the increasing trends takes place. Tourist arrival is decreased in 2005 in comparison to year 2004 except age group of 46-60 and 60 and above. Similarly, in year 2006, 2007 and 2008 we can observe that the trend continues i.e. 31-45 age group is dominant than dependent age group of 0-15 and 60+
  24. 24. age group 45-60 follows the 31-45 age group. Different types of physical and economic aspects are the factors affecting this scenario.

The data of the year 2010 is only presented in the above pie-chart. The purpose of holiday pleasure is decreasing from 2005 to 2010. The no. in trekking and tourism is
  25. 25. increasing up to 2009 and decreasing in 2010. Conference, Pilgrimage and others purposed tourists is increasing and while the number in official and Business is nearly same. Analysing the year 2010 it is found that holiday pleasure is 10% which is increasing than 2009. Trekking and mountaineering is 12% which is lesser than the year 2009. The business purpose is very low. While the pilgrimage purpose is 17%, which is almost increasing in rapid way. Since the Nepal has maximum probability of rafting it has low tourist influx for this purpose.
  26. 26. Figure 5: Tourists arrival by Major nationalities Since 2000, India is supplying more no of tourists. The Indian is more here for pilgrimage and other purpose, India is our neighbour country. After India, Sri-Lanka is the major country for tourists in Nepal. After than that USA is in third country to provide tourists for Nepal. After USA, tourist arrival from UK is also higher than other countries. Here in figure is highest since it is specified but it‟s too large to show in the figure so other than the major tourists‟ provider country is only mentioned here.

Figure 6: Gross foreign exchange earnings, 2000-2010 The increment nature of gross foreign exchange earning is one of the main contributions of tourist industry to national economy. From the above table and figure we can analysis the earnings trend of foreign currency from the tourism sector over the last 11 years i.e. 2000 to 2010. There is no stability in foreign exchange earning in between year 2000 to 2005. It was fluctuating over the 11 years period. The foreign exchange earning is decreasing up to year 2002 from 2000 due to decreasing in the number of influx of tourists in Nepal. From 2002 the number of tourist arrival is increased hence increase in the foreign exchange earnings. There is no vast difference in foreign exchange earnings from year 2003 to 2006 while increasing trend is shown in the foreign exchange earnings gaining the optimum level at 2009 and it is shifting downward from year 2009. Simple analysis shows that years 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2010 are recessionary period for foreign exchange earning as well as tourist income in Nepal. Remaining years 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 are recovery periods. 2009 377,172 28,996,950 7.2 739.6 65.3 2010 329,982 23,428,700 -12.5 547.4 43.2
  28. 28. 2.3.Major findings The area of this fieldwork is limited but from the analysis of the above presented data and diagram we can find that we have many possibilities. Since the past data is the reflection of the future we have simply analysed the above given data and find out some possibilities. Nepal is famous for its cultural heritage as well as famous for natural scene. The major purpose for incoming in Nepal is for pilgrimage and holiday tourism, thereafter Mountaineering and trekking. Tourists‟ arrival by Air in 2009 is 379,322 while in 2010 is 448,800 percentage changing by 18.3%. By land is 130,634 in 2009 and 602,867 in 2010 by percentage changing 17.9%. Male visitors are more often then female visitors. The independent age group i.e. 31-45 years are major age group visiting Nepal. But recent trend of 2009 and 2010 shows that the age group of 46-60 is coming more in Nepal. Purpose of visit is mainly for pilgrimage and thereafter holiday pleasure. Since Nepal has great possibilities in Rafting the tourist for this purpose is least. Revenue from tourism is 377,172,000 US$ in 2009 while in 2010 is 329,982,000 US$ decreasing by 12.5%. The average income is also decreasing per day by 33.8%. In mountaineering expedition Royalty to government is also decreasing while analysing the recent past data. In the analysis of the past decade we can find out that years 2003, 2007 and 2008 are prosperity period and years 2000 and 2004 are recession period. While the years 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2010 are depression period. The remaining years of decade 2006 and 2009 are recovery period.

Recommendations So far the high natural and cultural potentiality are seen in Nepal, it is expected that tourist industry can be developed in future and may plays a vital role in the country‟s socio- economic development by earning a significant amount of foreign exchange. So for the steady growth of tourism following recommendation are suggested. v Transportation: Transportation plays a crucial role in the development of tourism unless there is a convenient facility in transportation development of tourism is impossible. So it is necessary to pay attention on transportation facilities are better than will be able to bring more tourists. v Accommodation: Accommodation is also one of the important parts of tourism industry.

  34. 34. Tourist arrival record shows that most of the people travel to Nepal for spending holiday of for pleasure. They came here to relax and entertainment equipment or facilities are the best ways to relax. Tourists who travel with other purpose then holidays or pleasure also need entertainment. Therefore we have to increase the entertainment facilities on appropriate places to increase the arrival of tourists. v Marketing and Promotion Advertisement is one of the most powerful tools of marketing. Government and the private sector to promote products and to counter poor and bad publicity abroad whenever such cases happen should do tourism marketing jointly. Publicity should be made at international level through different popular international travel trade magazines, journals and other various media in major tourist originating market. Since Nepal has large potential of rafting but the lack of advertisement we have few tourists on this purpose. v Others Should care about sanitation and hygienic of place. The things which attract to tourist should preserve like ancient temples, natural beauty, historical monuments, cultural heritages etc. Security of tourist is one of the most important matters of tourism. So, government should be able provide security.
