KATHMANDU, Mar 08: Local government, hotel owners, and locals of Purwichauki Village Municipality-2, Bagleg have been engaged in starting homestay facilities for tourists. The village muncipality is situated near the entry gate to the Khaptad National Park. The decision to start homestay service was made by an all-party meeting. According to the Ward Chief Yogendra Thakulla, the village municipality has already allocated 3 million rupees for the operation.
Chief of Purwichauki Village Municipality Dirgha Bogati said that the movie was made to attract more tourists to the Khaptad area and to allow visitors a convenient place to say. President of Hotel Entrepreneurs Association Doti, Dipak Bahadur Khadka, said that the homestay facility will service tourists in the absence of big-budget hotels. He mentioned that the local bodies had to come together to organize the homestay service after losing hope in the government.

"The lack of material infrastructure has also caused inconvenience to tourists in the past," said Treasurer Siddha Raj Joshi. He reported that tourists visiting Bhu-Swarga from Silgadhi often returned early due to lack of lodging. The homestay service is an effort to mitigate all these negative experiences faced by tourists.
