Hotel launched targeting tourists visiting Dhaulagiri base camp

MYAGDI, Feb 05: A hotel has been established in Raghuganga Rural Municipality-7 to cater to tourists visiting the southern base camp of Dhaulagiri Peak.     

The initiation of this hospitality service is expected to greatly benefit tourists arriving here for trekking adventures along the Todke-Dhaulagiri, Dhaulagiri Icefall, and the Dhaulagiri Century Trek routes. Tourists coming here for trekking were facing difficulties due to the lack of accommodation and dining facilities.     

The hotel has the capacity to host 10-15 people simultaneously, and the owner, Kushal Paija, expressed plans for gradual capacity expansion. The hotel is situated in the scenic Setini Valley of Raghuganga Rural Municipality-7, at an altitude of 2,600 meters above sea level.     

Krishna Prasad Acharya, Vice-President of Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal (TAAN) Gandaki, currently present in the area to explore and promote the Todke-Dhaulagiri Cultural Panorama Trail, hopes that the introduction of hotel services will contribute significantly to promoting tourism in Setini Valley and have a positive impact on the local tourism industry.
