A two-day (Mach 29-30, 2011) national conference on “homestay” for tourists has been organized by the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoTCA) in the capital. Homestay , a form of tourism where tourists stay in a private home and experience daily life with their host’s family and community sharing local life and culture, is proving to be quite popular in rural areas where hotels and lodges are few or non-existent. This concept which was introduced in Nepal 2007 and has grown quite popular is expected to boost rural tourism during Nepal Tourism year 2011.
Arround 150 participants are attending the conference. Working policies and various issues related to homestay will be discussed.
