A five member Russian Expedition Team arrived in Nepal, crossing 6500 kilometers of road through Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and China. With an aim to promote tourism, the Russian team, led by Nikolay Lan Jukh, started their journey on Aril 18 from Ural mountains in Russia.
"After travelling from Russia to Nepal, we find that there is a great potential for the adventure tourists from Russia to come to Nepal," said team leader Jukh. Our team has plans to go to India after visiting Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha. This mission will complete in Australia. We will go by ship from Kolkata.
Going from Ural mountains of Europe to high mountains of Asia, including the Himalayas, the team also visited the base camp of Mt. Everest from the Chinese side. "We found that this is one of the most beautiful parts of the world where one can see the diversity in terms of geography, culture and religion."
