More Villages in Annapurna & Dhaulagiri Regions offering Homestays

Posted Apr 16th, 2012 under Company News, Tourism News,

Villages from more than two dozen mountain villages in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri regions are offering homestays for tourists. Village homestays are getting quite popular among trekkers and other tourists desirous of experiencing traditional village lifestyle and culture. This is a positive trend as the locals get to benefit directly from such type of tourism.  Nepal government has outlined certain guidelines for local homestay providers. Locals willing to provide homestay facilities must fulfill certain requirements, which includes proper toilet facility, regular water supply, good accommodation, clean and hygienic drinking water facility.

According to Tourism Office, Pokhara 12 villages in Kaski, four villages in Parbat, three in Myagdi, two in Tanahun and one each in Gorkha and Syangja are providing local homestays for tourists. While in three villages, homestays are run by individual families, in the remaining villages it is a joint community enterprise. The homestay arrangement in Dhital Hemjakot in Kaski has the largest capacity of accommodating 168 guests per day. Locals there have arranged 32 rooms for the purpose.
