Pokhara hotels packed out with domestic tourists

POKHARA: Hotels in touristic town Pokhara have been packed out with domestic tourists on the eve of Nepali New Year 2074 BS.

According to Bharat Raj Parajuli, Vice-chair of Pokhara Tourism Council, rooms in all hotels of the town have been booked for today and tomorrow as domestic tourists continue to flock to the city rich in natural beauty to celebrate the Nepali New Year.

This tourist arrival has elated hoteliers of Pokhara as they are busy welcoming guests.

"However, the arrival of foreign tourists after the 2015 Gorkha earthquake is not satisfactory," added the Western Regional Hotel Association's outgoing chair Parajuli.

There are around 500 hotels in Pokhara.
