NAWALPARASI, Sep 12: Devchuli Hill (Danda), located in eastern Nawalparasi, is gradually turning into a tourism area. Lately, number of domestic and foreign tourists turning up to Devchuli Danda for trekking is on the rise.

Besides, trekkers are increasingly attracted to take joy of the ambience of Tinkanya Mai Temple and Golpokhari Peace Park in Devchuli municipality-6 and Bulingtar rural municipality-4 as well as to indigenous Magar culture, shared Bulingtar's Chief Administrative Officer Bal Krishna Adhikari.

Among other points of attraction for tourists here are peculiar Tharu culture and wild lives such as tiger, elephant and rhino in the Madhyawarti forest.

In order to tap its tourism potentials, necessary publicity of the area exploring its religious, historical and archaeological importance along with infrastructure development for advancing the area as an entire tourism hub should be put on priority, said Padam Raj Giri, Chairperson of Devchuli Danda Tourism Area Infrastructure Development Committee.

The Committee has developed a View Tower with the height of 23 metres in the Devchuli Hill which is in an altitude of 1,936 metres.
