HoneyGuide goes ‘Wild West’ with Tourism Development Society (TDS)

Hands Down! Mountains are the unparalleled attractions that differentiate Nepal from the whole wide world. No wonder, Nepal sees a large number of trekkers every year- the population only increasing! But let’s admit, there also lies a huge fraction of the population in the world, who loves traveling leisurely. Today’s travelers have evolved to people who are looking to indulge in local experiences and are keen be exposed to in-depth knowledge of anything they are interested in.

Respecting the larger perspectives, HoneyGuide, partnering with The Tourism development Society (TDS) of Far Western Region, would like to officially announce that HoneyGuide will make an App to promote the highly overlooked, yet one of the most potential Tourism destinations of Nepal, ‘The Wild West’. It will be available to download both on Google’s Play Store as well as Apple’s App Store. The prime focus of the App, which will be branded under ‘Tourism Development Society’ is the Terai belt of the Western Region of Nepal from Nepalgunj to Mahendranagar. Despite the obvious reasons for being a home to the amazingly diverse wildlife, this virgin beauty of the West also shelters the remnants of the history, archaeology, religious monuments, deep-rooted local culture, and many more unheard stories.

  7. Infrastructure Coverage: All the Banks, hotels, schools, checkpoints and hospitals.

We believe, this step will majorly help to boost the Tourism in the ‘Wild West Nepal’. With the overall coverage of accommodations, every single hotels, lodges, homestays, and service will be exposed directly to the travelers. Even the undermined tourist attractions will receive attention and travelers can enjoy the localized experiences. The ‘Wild West’ will soon be an awaited tourist destination of Nepal.
