Gorkha, November 29

Homestay has been brought into operation targeting tourists visiting the historical place of Palungtar Municipality-2, Ligligkot.

Prem Kumari Thapa, the chairperson of the Ligligkot Homestay Committee, said that the number of people visiting Ligligkot has increased recently, but there is a problem with food and accommodation.

Seven houses have been constructed for homestay operation. "We have built seven one-room houses," she said. "One house can accommodate up to three guests."

A local doctor who is currently living in the US, Bal Krishna Sharma Marhatta had contributed Rs 300,000 per household. The committee has stated that Marhatta has also provided necessary construction materials.

Devi Thakuri, treasurer of the committee, said that the aim is to make visitors forget about Ligligkot for at least one day and to promote tourism in and around Ligligkot. "The number of tourists coming to Ligligkot has started increasing, but when there is no place to stay, they come back for a while. If we can forget them one night in Ligligkot, it will also help in the promotion and development of the place," she said.

She said that the guests coming to Homestay will get to see the local culture along with the taste of locally produced dishes. Mayor of Palungtar Municipality Deepak Babu Kandel inaugurated the homestay on Saturday.

Speaking at the inauguration program, he said that the income of the locals will increase with the launch of Homestay. "Currently, more than 100 tourists visit Ligligkot daily, but they don't have a place to stay, now we expect that this homestay will provide that service and also benefit the locals financially," said Mayor Kandel.
