The visiting team also urged FNCCI to include Palpa in the ‘One village, One product’ programme and open a skill development centre there. Rani Mahal, situated on the bank of Kali Gandaki river, Bhairav temple, Srinagar, Randi are major attractions of Palpa. Responding to the demands, Joshi assured that FNCCI will play a vital role in developing Palpa as a major tourist destination of Nepal. Palpa can be a hotspot for tourism, education and the health care sector, he said.
