Nepal has never needed tourism more than today. With some of our heritage sites challenged post earthquake, we are now facing a growing need to reestablish Nepal as an important tourist destination in the world. And here is our chance to make an impact.
We are looking for concepts, ideas and applications which will present Nepal to the world as an active and welcoming tourist destination. With amazing experiences such as mountaineering, trekking, adventure sports, eco-tourism and religious tourism, Nepal is a country best explored only when experienced first hand. So through your ideas, you can help people discover Nepal through apps that can be as generalized like TripIt or something specifically relevant to Nepal like Go2homestay. We can have a Picksie for food perhaps or Tourist Eye to assist the visitors, you name it and the area of work is immense. We want you to explore, learn and love the art of traveling through a business focused application tourists would actually enjoy and use.

And we want you to get bigger and better version of these utilities.
