RASUWA: The number of Chinese tourists entering Nepal from the northern transit route in Rasuwa is increasing by the day.


Inspector Pramesh Bista of the District Police Office (DPO) said a total of 21,016 Chinese tourists entered Nepal through Kerung via Rasuwagadhi since April 12, 2016. "More than a 100 Chinese tourists are arriving on a daily basis," he said.

Around a hundred containers arrive in Rasuwagadhi on a daily basis bringing the imported Chinese commodities which has changed the marketplace's outlook instilling more vibrancy in it.
