Himalayan Hospitality & Tourism Awards
Greetings from Himalayan Hospitality and Tourism Development Network (HHTDN), an umbrella organization of tour operators, hoteliers, home stays, transporters and a network of different associations in EAstern Himalaya Region.
Tourism is one of the world’s most important economic sectors. It employs one in every ten people on Earth and provides livelihoods to hundreds of millions more. Data from the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) shows that 100 to 120 million direct tourism jobs are at risk dur to Covid-19 worldwide.
