As winter approaches, tourists have started to flock to the hilly regions of Nepal, such as Dorje Lakpa and Jugal Himal, in the outskirts of Kathmandu.
“The mountain has added to the beauty and enjoyment of coming to this place. I come here because of the sight, too. I usually visit the place with my friends whenever we are free. Greenery gives a feeling of peace and well-being,” Sudarsha Chalise, a tourist told ANI.
Sankhu, an ancient town near the capital city, also experienced a steep increase in tourists this year due to cleaner skies and calmer weather. Kattike in Sankharapur is also one of the most popular hill resorts where tourists are coming.
“This place gives pleasant vibes. As it’s a festive season and institutions remain closed, I come to this place twice a week. Earlier, we couldn’t get such a mesmerizing view of the mountains, but now we can see them clearly that adds to happiness,” said Prasant Ghimire of Kathmandu.
The resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Nepal has caused economic hardship and hindered the festive season leading to less tourist activity this year. But the situation has changed to some degree now.
