Around 100 domestic and 22 to 23 foreign tourists are arriving in Rasuwa daily to visit Langtang and the holy shrine of Gosainkunda located in the upper region of Rasuwa, said Chief Conservation Officer of Langtang National Park Pramod Bhattarai.

 The majority of the domestic tourists are headed towards the holy shrine of Gosainkunda while foreign tourists are visiting the Langtang National Park for trekking in the mountainous region.

Hotelier Pasang Ghurmi Tamang of Chandanbari shared that the Gosainkunda religious route has become more vibrant after the tourists started flocking to the deserted Himalayan tourist area. Hoteliers say that there is hope for economic recovery as the number of visitors continues to increase.

Apart prom travelling by land, the number of devotees going to Gosainkunda by air is also increasing. The helicopter facility has made it easier for the senior citizens unable to walk on foot to visit this holy shrine, said local priest Tanka Prasad Dhakal.
