The first cross-border tourism charter flight from Shanghai to Nepal's capital Kathmandu and further to Shigatse of Xizang autonomous region was launched on Saturday with 105 travelers onboard, according to official sources.

During their 12-day trip, the tourists will experience a distinctive cross-border journey featuring well-known scenic spots in Nepal and Xizang, according to the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism.
