Recently, the number of internal and external tourists coming for trekking in the mountainous region of Rasuwa has been increasing.

Tourists have started coming for trekking in Langtang and Gosaikunda areas after the Covid-19 infection fell to zero. According to Ram Sharan Gajurel, district president of the Hotel Business Association, 20-25 internal and external tourists have started coming to Gosainkunda on foot daily. With the advent of tourism, the hotel business has been booming here.

Since July of the current fiscal year, 11 thousand 618 domestic and foreign tourists have visited Gosainkunda and Langtang in Langtang National Park. Chief Conservation Officer of Langtang National Park, Pramod Bhattarai, said that the past statistics show that tourist arrivals will increase significantly in spring and summer.

During this period of the current Fiscal Year, 10 thousand 503 domestic, 112 tourists from SAARC countries and one thousand three other countries have visited. According to Gajurel, hotels have been set up along the religious footpath from Tiwari Bagar to Chandan Bari, Laurivinayak, Gosaikunda and Langtang Kangjen via Syafrubensi.

Amit Pawar, an Indian traveler who has come for mountaineering, says, "We have come to see God as it is a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage." With the arrival of tourists, hoteliers on footpaths have become busy in transporting food.

Similarly, it has been requested to operate four hotels near the pilgrimage site permitted by the Langtang National Park Office for the purpose of providing accommodation to the passengers reaching Gosainkund.
