Fifty years have elapsed since NEPAL ASSOCIATION OF TOUR & TRAVEL AGENTS (NATTA) came into existence.
It was established in 1966 (2022/11/27 B.S.) by a group of leading travel agents, who felt that it was the time to work together to formulate sound business principles and to regulate the travel industry in Nepal.
The primary purposes of NATTA has been to protect the professional interests of those engaged in the travel trade business, to promote its orderly growth and developement, to safeguard the travelling public from exploitation by unreliable agents.
NATTA is a non-political, non-profit making, non-governmental pioneer and national association of travel industry in Nepal. It is recognised as the main representative body of tourism industry in Nepal.
The number of association's members has been increasing since its establishment. Today, we have three Regional Associations viz., Western (Pokhara), Eastern (Kakadvitta) & Far Western (Dhangadi) and a Chapter (Palpa). And there are more than 750 Active members and 10 Allied Members in NATTA. NATTA also offers provisional Membership and Honorary Life Membership to those with significant contributions in upholding Nepalese tourism.
