ICIMOD’s Kangchenjunga Landscape Conservation and Development Initiative (KLCDI) has been promoting homestay development in the KL through various long- and short-term ecotourism development initiatives within its partner countries: Bhutan, India, and Nepal. The Asian Rural Tourism Festival is one such important event that KLCDI has been supporting to promote sustainable ecotourism.
Against this background, KLCDI – in partnership with the Government of Nepal, Nepal Tourism Board, and Green Generation – will be organizing the Homestay Congress 2020 on 9–12 February 2020, as a part of the 6th Asian Rural Tourism Festival from 9 to 13 February 2020. Homestay Congress will be the flagship event aimed at regional homestay development in the KL.
