    Kathmandu: Tashi Delek Thangka Exhibition has been organized here by Chinese Cultural Center in Nepal in cooperation with Department of Culture of Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

    The four day exhibition features 30 thangkas painted by Tibetan artists. A 5- member Tibetan artist delegation led by Awang is here in Nepal in connection with promoting Tibetan art and culture.

    Addressing a ceremony held at the Chinese Cultural Center , Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Ananda Prasad Pokhrel stressed on strengthening cultural relations with China.

    On the occasion, visiting Tibetan artist and Thangka painter Awang , diplomat representing Chinese embassy in Kathmandu and Director of Chinese Culture Center Yin Kun Song highlighted on different aspects of Nepal- China relations .

    Thangka in Tibetan literally means a painting similar to put a mandaia on the ground with clear and graceful lines. With distinctive ethnic, rich religious and unique artistic characteristics, thangka is a scroll painting framed by colorful silk.

     Thangka is one of the most representative Tibetan painting arts, a folk painting of social history with extensive themes and various contents.

    China Cultural Center, located in Maharajganj  , will be officially opened  in near future. The center aims to organize programs to strengthen cultural relations between the two countries.

    A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the two countries to establish Chinese Cultural Center in Kathmandu in 2012.

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
