Atithi, Debo, Vawa
I have often seen this statement in the brochures and websites of travelling agencies and other documents related to travel and tourists. What does this really mean?

Simply ‘Atithi Debo Bhawa’ means Guests are God. It is one of the prevalent thoughts among Nepalese people. They regard their guests as god and respect them. Nepalese people believe that it is their prior duty to give maximum comfort and service to their guests. So, in Nepal, ‘Tourists are Gods’ i.e. ‘Atithi Debo Bhawa’.

it means traditional philosophy of giving the highest honour to a guest/foreigner traveling to own country.
It is the highest possible “respect” given to the guests by country people.

In Nepal, anybody that comes at night he /she is a guest . your home/family will respect and follow ‘Atithi Debo Bhawa’
