Three new rural tourism destinations identified


For the promotion of the tourism sector in Nepal, new tourism destinations are being identified. According to Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), there are more than 10 destinations that are suitable for rural tourism. The new destinations that have been identified are Chum Valley (Gorkha) and Panch Pokhari and Bhairav Kunda — both in Sindhupalchowk. Among them, Chum Valley in Gorkha is about 75 kilometres west of Kathmandu. Panch Pokhari and Bhairav Kunda both are about 40 kilometres northeast of the valley. According to tourism entrepreneurs, Nepal is a diverse country and the diversification can be used as its strength to promote it as a diverse tourist destination. With the tourist season on, more tourists are coming to Nepal which can be quite helpful in promoting Nepal Tourism Year 2011. According to people related to rural tourism, though Nepal has greater possibility to enhance village tourism there is still need for special concern about this sector. Village tourism can be a good way to increase the stay duration of foreign tourists.
