I think the makers of the EE probably got it from a quotes site

- esp. if they really did mis-spell Tolkien's name.

The thing is, I've been reading works by and about Tolkien for many years now, and I've never heard of that 'quote' before. It certainly doesn't read (to me) like anything he would have thought or said; fundamentally it has no meaning. It's far more likely that this 'perception' is on the part of the copywriter than JRR himself.

As in all these cases, it's up to the people claiming these things as 'quotes' to actually say where Tolkien actually said it. There's a lot of rubbish about Tolkien out there on the net; try googling Tolkien and Nepal and you get this -

The secluded town of Pokhara lies 200km (125 miles) west of Kathmandu in the centre of Nepal on Lake Phewa. No other place in the world commands such a view of the Himalayas. It is a starting point for mountaineers and trekkers, and was at one time the home of JRR Tolkien.

Some people seem to have taken this at face value - at one time, it was repeated around the net. It isn't true, though.
