The stakeholders noted that the sacred Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar, natural and cultural assets of Humla offer an opportunity to promote transboundary heritage tourism and ecotourism. These inherent tourism assets of global and local cultural and environment values and economic scope are the binding threads for transboundary tourism collaborations.
