Meyer will be traversing around 11,000 kilometers to Germany. He arrived in Kanchanpur on Sunday evening and said Nepal has plenty of locations with tourism possibilities.
He spoke of his decision to travel to Germany on a four-wheeler saying he desired to see the villages on the way.
The Germany envoy stayed at the Shuklaphanta Cottage at Shuklaphanta National Park. He said he will return to visit the national park again and also visit Jumla and the famous Rara Lake.
During a brief talk with the National News Agency (RSS), Ambassador Meyer was reminiscent of his visit to Manang and Mustang, and confided that he was enticed by the cultural diversity.
Meyer said he likes to travel to places with peaceful environment and get to make new acquaintances. The German envoy, who has chosen a rather unconventional means to travel back home, questioned why we should always travel on a plane.
The German envoy entered Indian side of the border through the western border point of Gaddachowki this morning. He will be travelling through Pakistan, Iran and Turkey before entering Europe.
He has pledged Germany’s continued support in the development of Nepal’s tourist destinations. RSS
