Agro Tourism in Nepal Brief Insight

Agro Tourism in Nepal is an elite approach to attracting tourists. Nepal is an agricultural country. More than 66% of its total population is directly involved in agriculture. The land structure of Nepal is diverse and it possesses diverse temperatures and climate in all different regions. Due to this, varieties of crops and vegetation can be grown in the soil of Nepal. But the only main reason that lacks these people behind is the traditional methods of farming and lack of agricultural education. Keeping this aside Agro tourism is very famous in Nepal, as Nepal is known as a tourism country all over the world.

The tourism industry is the fastest developing financial sector in Nepal due to its fantastic natural beauty, unique and amazing cultures and traditions. So simply we can portray Agro tourism as the combination of agriculture and tourism.

Agro Tourism is the best way of attracting tourists and visitors in areas where agriculture is the main aspect. Agrotourism involves a variety of activities such as Vegetable farming, organic farming, poultry farming, visiting and overnight stay at the farm and many more. Nepal celebrates ‘Ropai Jatra’ that is a Rice Planting Festival every year on Ashadh 15 (June 29). 

The major aim of this article is to provide you the information about Phulkharka tourism and how Agro tourism is involved in Phulkharka. Phulkharka is a small and beautiful village, located about 135km northwest of Kathmandu. It lies in the northern part of Dhading district at an elevation of 3500 meters. Phulkharka is located at the foothills of Ganesh Himal and Mount Manaslu.

Phulkharka means ‘Flower Garden’. The Phulkharka village is occupied by diverse ethnic groups and races of people like Newar, Brahmin, Chhetri, Gurung, Magar, Damai, Kami, etc. You can see the unspoiled and authentic Nepalese lifestyle in this village.

This village lies on the border of Ganesh Himal and Manaslu so they have a mixed-race of Hindu and Buddhist communities. You can see awesome panoramic views of Ganesh Himal and other attractive natural scenes as well.

Agro Tourism, especially in Phulkharka village, is all about conventional rice farming. It begins in June/July and keeps going till October. People in this village are very friendly and cooperative.

During your trek to Phulkharka, you will be staying in a homestay lodge in one of the build-up houses. They are selected with their hygienic adaptation in daily life.  You will be spending a few days sightseeing.

This village was destroyed in the 2015 earthquake. Therefore, the Phulkharka Earthquake Village Trek 2016 has been introduced with the aim of supporting the national cause of Nepal known as ‘Nepal Earthquake- A change to rebuild’. 

Most researches show that Nepal is better lagging behind in rice production as compared to other leading rice-producing countries. It is just 3 tons/hectare. Therefore, it is necessary to develop and introduce new scientific methods and technologies for agriculture in Nepal.
