Speaking about the home stay tourism program, Lal Shree said, "I have a dream to have an income at home and to make my village a model village in the area. I can fulfill both purposes with the home stay program. This training will help us create a tourist friendly environment so we will be able to receive guests, provide them good food and good services."
During the training, participants learned skills on proper cooking, cleaning, water purification, catering, and cultural exchange. They also listened to lectures on many subjects designed to improve their abilities to host international travelers.
The home stay tourism program is a huge step to introducing economic opportunities in the villages of Lamjung. Lal Shree says, "Ultimately, the home stay program will contribute to the national income. After receiving the training, I realize that the future of home stay tourism is bright in Nepal. It will allow people to work in the village and stay with their families."
