Kathmandu: Aiming to boost tourism sector in the country hit by years of unrest, tourism authorities in Nepal have decided to mark 2007 as the 'Visit Pokhara Year' by organising various events in the famous tourist spot in the western part of the insurgency-hit region.

The 'Visit Pokhara Year' aims to increase the inflow of tourists in the post conflict scenario in the country, media advisor at the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) Sharad Pradhan said.

The year-long festival will begin from December 31 with events like hand-gliding competition, food festival, boating, cultural programmes, short trekking and a number of other interesting activities, NTB said in a press release.

Pokhara which atracts one fourth of tourists visiting the Himalayan Kingdom is the third popular destination in the country after Kathmandu and Chitawan National Park and is the major gateway to the famous Annapurna circuit trekking route.
