The information center was set up by Dhulikhel Environmental and Tourism Promotion Committee and inaugurated by Joint Secretary Rabindra Dholiju Shrestha. “The center shall meet its goal if it can provide all type of information to tourists and assistance to those willing to invest in the field of tourism in this town famous for its natural and cultural attractions,” said Shrestha. 

Although the town has plenty of hotels and resorts, due to the lack of proper information, many tourists return to the capital after staying a night here. Areas like Dhulikhel, Panauti, Namo Buddha, Panchkhal, Dolalghat and Timal are popular tourist destinations among tourists in the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley. 

The Dhulikhel Environmental and Tourism Promotion Committee has collaborated with the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) to publish a guidebook to promote the tourist attractions in the area. Dhulikhel Municipality is also taking necessary steps to repair old temples and houses of historical and archeological significance in the Purano Bazar area of Dhulikhel to retain its typical Newari outlook, according to Romi Prasad Byanju, chairperson of Ward 7 of the municipality.

The municipality has also created environment conducive for investors, including non-resident Nepalis, who want to run hotels and other tourism enterprises in the area. The municipality has also decided to waive off local taxes for businesses and industries that employ more than 25 individuals for five years.

Although similar information center was established by Dhulikhel Municipality and Rotary Club of Dhulikhel earlier, it was shut down in September 2009, due to financial reasons.
