Explore Himalaya with its partner Kipling Travel, Denmark has been working quite a lot to promote the villages of Nuwakot, Samari and Sele. Despite of tourism perspectives, these destinations are unable to achieve the significant recognition amongst the visitors to Nepal. Acknowledging, the possibilities, the duo of Explore Himalaya and Kipling Travel has been promoting these destinations for the last few years. The dual effort has showed the positive signs over the years as Nuwakot, Samari and Sele are starting to expect the noteworthy visitors.

Nuwakot and Samari have been the popular home-stay destinations for the past few years.  The EH Kipling alliance owns two traditional old houses in Nuwakot and Samari to provide basic facilities to visitors in this region. The third linking point Sele had the camping accommodation facilities. Since the number of visitors is increasing every year, the companies has planned an alternate to Sele camping.

A team including a photographer and an architect were recently sent to visit all these sites. As per the organizational plan of constructing the new ecological resort in sele, the team took the necessary measurements at our location in Sele and the construction is expected to start very soon.
