Zakhera Lake located in Lamahi Municipality-3 has recently started to develop into a tourist spot. The lake, which is located in Lumbini province, is spread over an area of ​​five and a half bighas.

Lokmani Banjade, general secretary of the Zakhera Shivalaya Religious Tourism Development and Conservation Foundation, informed that the lake is an attraction for boating, picnics and photography.

Ramprasad Upadhyay, president of the foundation, said that for the development of Zakhera Shivalaya, the federal government has allocated Rs.90 Lakhs

Balkrishna Chaudhary, a local hotelier, said that along with the protection and development of the lake, there has been an economic growth in the businesses of this area. "Business has increased since management of boating and picnic areas in the park have increased", he said.

Similarly, Kulpani Harit Udyan in Garhwa Rural Municipality-1 is also becoming a tourist destination. Baburam Adhikari, Ward President of Garhwa Rural Municipality-1 informed that about 300 tourists visit the destination every day. The Ward President Officer also said that Garhwa Rural Municipality has allocated budget of Rs. 8 lakhs for the development of Kulpati Green Park this year. He says that other social organizations are also supporting the budget.

Similarly, Gadhwa rural municipality-8 Koilabas pass, which is connected to the border with India, has also been attracting domestic tourists recently. Khaliq Siddiqui, Ward President of Ward No. 8, informed that Indian tourists come daily to see the nearby mountains, to see the suspension bridge in the river, and to climb the view tower.

The Dharapani temple, situated at a distance of nine kilometers to the south from Dang headquarters, Ghorahi Bazar, is well known for its tall trishul. Bishnu Ram Acharya, Secretary of Pandaveswar Mahadev Temple Management Committee and Ward President of Ward No. 5, informed that the federal, state and local governments are allocating a budget for the development of Dharapani temple in Ghorahi sub-metropolitan city-5.

He said that because this is a religious forest area, fish and meat cannot be taken around the temple, homestays and restaurants are not allowed to operate. "Outside the temple, there is a place for selling puja materials, a general tea shop and the money that comes from the puja offerings offered by the devotees who come to perform puja is the source of income of the temple," he said.

The committee has started construction of a dam in an area of ​​about four bighas. According to the management committee, the state government has allocated more than Rs 30 million for this purpose. After the construction of the dam, the intention is to operate fishing and boating.

Similarly, Acharya informed that the Gurukul is being constructed with a budget of Rs. 25 lakhs received from the federal government.

Similarly, man-made tourist areas are also being built in Dang. Due to the lack of hotels, restaurants and homestays with facilities for accommodation and food, there is a problem for visitors coming from far away.
