Chairman of Hotel Association, Pokhara, Laxman Subedi said that the team from Pokhara discussed with the business community in Bardibas of Mahottari district to develop tourism partnership.
The number of domestic tourists in Pokhara has increased lately, thanks to various promotional events.
Hotelier Gopal Karki of Bardibas said that Nepal’s tourism industry could be made dynamic through the development of domestic tourism and expressed his readiness for the partnership to promote domestic tourism.
Likewise, Madhesh province committee member of Hotel Association of Nepal (HAN) Dipendra Parajuli said that some of the destinations are not explored due to lack of infrastructures including road network.
