January 30: The tourist sites of Province 1 are becoming deserted again. The tourist area, which seemed to be moving a few months ago, has been deserted recently due to the increasing number of infections including Omicron variants. Domestic and foreign tourist arrivals at tourist destinations in the state have come to a standstill due to the growing Corona epidemic.
Tourist destinations of Province 1 Bhedetar, Hile, Pakhribas, Sankhuwasabha of Dhankuta Tehrathum and Taplejung, the capital of Gurans, Tinjure-Milke-Jaljale (TMJ), Koshitappu on the border of Sunsari and Udaipur, Betna wetland area of Morang, Taltalaiya of Sunsari, Varah area of Sunsari-Vijaypur and Kanyam of Ilam have come to a standstill.
Entrepreneurs say that they have lost millions of rupees after the closure of the hotel business.
Similarly, Hotel business in neighboring districts, including Rupendehi, has slowed down due to the Corona epidemic. After the second wave of Corona, as soon as the international border was opened, Indians were allowed to come here. When it was not possible for third-country tourists to come immediately, the hotels and restaurants here were dependent on Indian and domestic tourists.
The number of visitors from India decreased because Religious and tourist sites like Pashupatinath and Manakamana were closed, due to the Omricon variant.
