This book explores the role of tourism in the expression of nationalism in Nepal. It investigates assemblage of images, emblems and symbols of Nepali nationhood in various touristic representations, and narratives from Nepali travellers and diasporic visitors to showcase how they express nationhood and stimulate a strong sentiment of national feeling and belongingness. The book suggests that touristic settings in Nepal provide a venue for articulation of nation, first through internal ascription, that is, the construction of identity by citizens with the nation; and second, through the promotion of distinctive touristic identity through the assertion of national uniqueness and a distinction of the nation within the larger international community.

Given the recent great political changes, post-conflict nation-rebuilding and development, Nepal offers a fascinating case study on the role of tourism and nationalism. This book will be of great interest to students, scholars and professionals working in tourism and heritage studies, sociology, anthropology, geography, political science, area studies and those interested in the study of developing societies.
