Corona Virus pandemic is affecting the economies worldwide, and Nepal is no exception. Manufacturing, Agriculture, Remittance and Tourism, every sector is witnessing a decline. Government’s much-speculated initiative Visit Nepal 2020 has also been postponed for 2022 and the government has halted on-arrival Visas as well. Right now, although it is a tourist season in Nepal, hotels are witnessing only a 40-50% occupancy rate which used to be up to 80% before Corona Virus. The airlines industry is also suffering badly and they have been cornered to slash the fares. If the situation continues, numerous businesses may have to shut down.
In order to maintain the morale of Nepalese entrepreneurs and boost the declining economy, XcelTrip has introduced “राम्रो पोखरा, घुमौ पोखरा” campaign. The campaign has begun from March 15th and will last till April 15th, 2020. Within this offer, those who are traveling to Pokhara can enjoy various benefits. Various hotels are offering a one-night free stay for users booking one night stay or more, and hotels are also offering up to 50% discount. Furthermore, eSewa users will get an additional Rs. 500 discount voucher while paying for hotel bookings via eSewa.
