Nepal’s popular tourism destination Sauraha, Chitwan mulling new tourism packages
In view of the Nepal Tourism Year 2020, a new campaign is to be set up to attract tourists to Nepal's popular destination, Sauraha.
Local tourism entrepreneurs said new packages would be brought to lure tourists in off-seasons too. The idea currently is to promote tourism throughout the year and not being limited to fairs, festivals and events.
Suman Ghimire, Chairperson of Regional Hotel Association Sauraha, said the place has seen nominal hotel occupancies except during the special season so packages are being mooted to attract tourists during the off-season.
Tourists’ arrival has not increased at Sauraha due to lack of diverse hotel services. Domestic tourists also returned empty-handed after not getting rooms during the New Year. "Discussion is being held among tourism entrepreneurs to address such a situation and bring new packages and offers," he shared.
Sauraha has around 110 hotels and annually receive around 200,000 tourists. - RSS
