The stage has been raised by the competition. ‘There are many places with tourist potential in our mountains, hills and lowlands. That is why we have competed to bring the hidden destinations into the spotlight, ”said Khadka, the forum's coordinator." We will continue to do the same in the coming days. "

Manch is an organization of young tourism workers. It has stated that it will launch 'Let's go to Dolakha' campaign after the strike to promote domestic tourism.
