Chitwan, December 17
The tourism industry of Sauraha in Chitwan, which was battered in the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic almost for a year, has gradually started revitalising.
This time around the rise in the flow of domestic tourists has spurred tourism activities in Sauraha.
Tourism entrepreneurs have attempted to bring positive vibes in the industry by offering discounts at hotels and restaurants and for elephant riding.
There seems growing mobility of internal tourists in Sauraha, especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
Entrepreneurs say the recent influx of internal tourists following the Tihar festival has rendered them a respite and encouragement.
The chairperson of Regional Hotel Association Sauraha, Deepak Bhattarai, says the rise in the inflow of tourists has started changing the landscape of tourism in Sauraha.
“Sauraha has started catching up its rhythm due to the gradual rise in the flow of internal tourists of late. Now, the situation has emerged in a way that it would meet the regular expenses.”
