Dhulikhel, November 6:
The Mayor of Gilching (Munich), Germany, Thomas Reich, has said Nepal is safe for tourists.
Thomas, who is here to acquire information on the health projects run by German â€˜Namaste Stiftungâ€™ in Kavreâ€™s Dhulikhel and Bolde Phediche, told this daily today: â€œNepalâ€™s internal conflict has not harmed the tourists. Nepal is a safe tourist destination.â€
â€œNew York maybe more dangerous than Nepal,â€ Thomas said, expressing his displeasure with the US travel advisory warning.
He said the tourists could go around Nepal without a worry and there was no truth behind the news being spread by the foreign media on Nepal.
President of the Namaste Stiftung, Horst Schmel, said: â€œWhen I arrive in Nepal, I feel I have come home. The tourists face no problems here.â€ Horstâ€™s wife, Ursala, said Nepalâ€™s natural beauty and Nepali hospitality had touched their heart.
