Ratnanagar, Mar. 22: In a bid to increase income by utilising local natural resources, Thori rural municipality has initiated developing tourism infrastructures.
Geographically connected to Chitwan National Park and Parsa National Park, the rural municipality has focused on tourism promotion activities since this year.
With this, the locals who had lost their lives and properties due to wild animal rampage are to shore up their income levels from tourism enterprises.

He further shared that the eastern route from Gaduwa line post of Thori rural municipality to Rambagari Bhatha, the western route from Panityanki of Ward-4 to Rambagari Bhatha and another 16-km road from from Shikaribas-4 to Ichhanagar of Thori-2 are being repaired and constructed.
Chair Shrestha informed that the budgetary allocation was made for the construction of home stay in the rural municipality.
"We have started elephant riding now", he said, adding that discussion is being held with the private sector for jeep safari. Most probably the jeep safari would start from next fiscal year (coming mid-July)". Shrestha said.
The rural municipality has also floated a plan to connect the trekking route with Sauraha in near future", he said, adding this would help make tourists' stay longer.
