Ambassador Carmona in Mustang [fr]
15 May 2018:
Mr. Yves Carmona, Ambassador of France to Nepal, went to Mustang and attended the traditional festival of Tiji and met the former King of Mustang and several elected officials.
Mustang is a region of strong Tibetan Buddhist religious and cultural influences. Many tourists, among whom the French remain the most numerous, visit it and thus contribute to an economy that is highly dependent on the tourism sector.
France promotes responsible tourism that respects the environment and the values of the local society.
