KATHMANDU: The Nepal Tourism Board will be hosting various promotional programmes to mark the World Yoga Day.

The programmes aimed at promoting yoga and spiritual tourism in Nepal will be held on June 21, it was informed at a press conference here today.

The Nepal Yoga Association in collaboration with NTB will take out a tourism rally and present a working paper on yoga, health and tourism. Yoga gurus from 14 different countries will be taking part in the programmes.

The rally itself will start from Brikutimandap-based NTB building and converge into a Yoga Pranayam Programme at Hotel Woodland at King's Way, Organising Committee Chair Mohan Lamsal said.

The United Nations two years ago had decreed the celebration of World Yoga Day on June 21 every year.
