“We have emphasized on tourism promotion with local organic ingredients,” he said. “We will set up a tourism information center to count foreign tourists in Ward No. 8 Birethanti and Ward No. 7 Pothana.” The tourist village Ghandruk is being developed as a cultural village. Lalit Gurung, Chairman of the Annapurna Century Tourism Committee, said that the plan to declare Ghandruk a cultural village was important. Stating that there is a lot of potential for tourism in the entire Annapurna village including Ghandruk, he said that the tourism-targeted plan should be taken forward in coordination with the federal, state and local levels. The committee has been conducting Annapurna Marathon from Annapurna base camp to Ghandruk every year to promote tourism in the entire Annapurna region.
Advocate Hari Bhattarai said that even though Ghandruk is an ancient settlement, it is not yet known when the settlement was developed. Stating that there are two opinions about where the first people came from to settle here, he said, “Some say that they came from Kholasonthar of Lamjung, some say that they came from Kowang of Mustang.” The goal is to build Annapurna Greater Tourism Footpath by expanding and maintaining the tourist footpath within the village municipality.
