Two Nepali youths on world bicycle tour reach JapanPosted 10 months ago by Adarsha Devkota
Two Nepali youths who are on a world bicycle tour to spread importance of blood donation, have reached Japan.
Bheshraj Kandel and Yubraj Mainali who began their visit seven months ago from Nepal have already made a tour of the total 15 countries (including Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Maldives, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines and Taiwan) before reaching Japan.
Talking to Rastriya Samachar Samiti over the phone, the duo visitors said they also create publicity about Mt Everest (Sagarmatha) and spread message that Gautam Buddha was born in Nepal. Their next destination will be South Korea, they added.
Various organisations and Non-Resident Nepali Associations in the country they have reached as part of their tour provided physical and monetary help, they shared.
In Japan, Nepal Society President Purushottam Sigdel and Senior Vice President Nabin Adhikari welcomed the visiting youths and gave Japanese Yen 30,000.
The youths shared that during their tour they found that people had misconception about blood donation like a person feels weak after blood donation.
They aim to tour 150 countries in five years and believe that the tour would also support tourism as they said they would invite foreigners they would meet during the tour to visit the country of Mt Everest. RSS
