Nepal Witnesses a Domestic Travel Boom
With a sharp decline in international arrivals, the tourism industry of Nepal has been supported by a boom in domestic tourism. Major tourist destinations such as Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini are welcoming local guests at unprecedented numbers. Some hotels and resorts are operating at a full occupancy during weekends and festivals.
