Ford Nepal (GO Automobiles Pvt. Ltd) successfully conducted “OFF TO NUWAKOT” 4×4 event marked as it customer engagement program with a motive of internal tourism promotion and development of OFF-ROADING culture in Nepal according to a press release issued by the company.
The company said that Nuwakot, at an elevation of 900 m, the ancient citadel stands proud as if untouched by changing times, amid the quaint Nuwakot Bazaar. While the interior of the durbar suffered some damage during the recent earthquake on 25th April 2015, the buildings are still intact and a tour of the premises is still possible. Reconstruction efforts are underway to conserve the heritage site that played a pivotal role in shaping the history of modern Nepal. The durbar is still an undiscovered treasure, despite its historical and cultural significance. The seven-story palace fortress was built during the reign of Prithvi Narayan Shah in the 18th century. It shows little evidence of the attacks by Malla and later Chinese forces.
The company stated that the idea of OFF TO NUWAKOT is to emphasize the culture of exploration and travel along with the demonstration of FORD lifestyle Trucks which is one of the drive you must have in your garage for the expedition purpose. With approx… 40 participants FORD is making its way to the historic lands of Nuwakot with several activities in between such as jungle excursion, zip line and site-seeing. The event came to an end after visiting NUWA ESTATE FARM which promotes sustainable coffee farming in Nuwakot.
