Last week we had an interesting and productive meeting with Pankaj Pradhananga, Director at Four Season Travel Company at Baker’s Den coffee/tea shop in Kathmandu. We discussed ‘inclusive travel’ options and opportunities for people with disabilities. Also providing critical input at this meeting were Ms. Jamuna Subedi, Nirmala Gyawali and Sita Gyawali.

Pankaj is also assisting with logistical arrangements for a visit from Scott Raines, from San Jose, CA whose work involves capacity-building of the hotel and tourism industry in relation to travelers with disabilities. Scott will be doing a series of workshops in Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara from May 14-26.
