Gorkha, from where the unification of modern Nepal was started by King Prithvi Narayan Shah, is the first capital of Nepal. There are several places of historical and archaeological importance in the district. Blessed by nature’s splendor this land of historic, religious, ecological and cultural significance has every potential to be featured as one of the favored touristic destinations of the country. However, the number of tourists coming to this region is limited. The district is home to Mt Manaslu and the famous Manaslu Circuit Trek. Besides, the Lower Manaslu route offers moderate trekking, historical tour, pilgrimage tour, agro tourism and community based home stay. The locals are also committed towards development and promotion of tourism in the district. The Lower Manaslu Trek begins from Ghairung near the famous Manakamana Temple and progress through Gorkha Bazaar, Sirandanda, Barpak, Laprak, Lambai Kharka and Dharche Danda before concluding at Gyampesal. Accommodation is mostly on home stay or camping as commercial lodging is available in only a few places.
