Baglung, December 24
As many as 60 plans are coming into implementation for the expansion of the tourism industry in Baglung district this year.
The Gandaki provincial government has brought into implementation some 60 plans in the district for the current fiscal year.
It may be noted that only seven plans were chosen for tourism industry promotion in the district last year.
Out of Rs 52.4 million allocated for the implementation of seven plans in the fiscal year, only Rs 24.4 million was spent due to the effects of the coronavirus transmission.
According to Bikas Lamsal, the Gandaki Provincial Minister for Industry, Tourism, Forest and Environment, total 60 plans with a budget of Rs 75.5 million are coming into execution in Baglung district this year.
Lamsal says the contract signing has been expiated for the execution of plans this year. Among the plans are the construction of a view tower, trekking route, eco-tourism, paragliding infrastructure development and homestay grant.
