Gorkha, place from where 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 land marked 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, a number of tourists coming to this region is limited. Besides the Manaslu circuit trek, 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.
