Tourists are flocking to Ghodepani and Poon Hill, the major tourist destinations of Myagdi located in Annapurna Gaonpalika-6.

The number of domestic and foreign tourists visiting Nepal has started increasing as the tourist area, which was closed due to increasing risk of corona virus infection, has reopened. With the increase in the number of foreign tourists, the tourism sector has also started moving. With the increase in the number of tourists, there is hope among hoteliers and tourism professionals who are in crisis due to the risk of corona virus infection.

With the increasing risk of corona virus infection, the Ghodepani rehabilitation area had been deserted since April, 2077 BS.

He said that the business was slowly gaining momentum due to the increasing risk of corona virus infection.

"Lately, the number of foreign tourists has been increasing," he said. The number of foreign guests has increased since the fall. ” He said the number of foreigners would continue to rise. According to him, the number of foreign tourists coming now is much less than the number of foreigners coming last year. ” Hoteliers are hoping to increase the number of tourists as the risk of corona virus infection decreases.
