Gorkha, place from where the unification of 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 natural splendor and landmarked by a plethora of historical, religious, ecological and cultural importance it 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 are limited. Besides the Manaslu circuit trek, the lower Manaslu route offers moderate trekking, historical tour, pilgrimage tour, agro tourism, and community-based homestay. The locals are also committed towards the development and promotion of tourism in the district.
