Rural Ecotourism Promotion and Development

Since the beginning, PFPA has been putting emphasis on promoting and developing rural eco-tourism in Nepal as a tool for fighting multidimensional rural poverty.

Today, many people in rural areas relay on subsistence agriculture, and the rural tourism for them can be a new opportunity. Rural areas is a place for Nepal’s most of the poor population. When travellers go to these rural areas, it creates new social and economic opportunities to the rural poor. Nepal Rural Tourism web portal was developed with the aim of reducing rural poverty and creating opportunities to the rural poor.
