UK royal couple to honeymoon in Nepal ! (Read full article)

Prince William and Kate Middleton have decided on Nepal for their honeymoon and are expected to land up in Kathmandu a week after their April 29 royal wedding at Westminster Abbey, London. Nepal stands to enjoy unlimited free publicity and recognition because of this event that will provide an unexpected boost to the Nepal Tourism Year 2011.

According to sources at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the royal couple will spend a couple of days in Kathmandu at the Gokarna Resort. After their sojourn in Kathmandu, the royal couple would leave for the Everest region by a chopper and check into Hotel Everest View which happens to be the highest located hotel in the world situated at 3,880 m in the Sagarmatha National Park commanding a spectacular view of Mt Everest. They will also make a trip to Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve in West Nepal that is a dedicated area where certain wild species are permitted to be culled.

I wish this news was true but remember today is April Fool's Day and The Himalayan Times has splashed this story across the front page of today's edition. Nice one Himalayan Times!
