Nepal Tourism Infrastructure Development Council (NTIDC) is preparing tourism profile of all 75 districts of the country, Republica daily reported on Sunday.

According to Baikuntha Nath Pradhan, NTIDC chairman, the organization has already prepared tourism profile of Dolakha district. The profiles will be prepared in coordination with the concerned Village Development Committees, District Development Committees and the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Pradhan said.

The NTIDC is also working to identify the core tourist areas in the districts and the condition of related infrastructures. "I hope this will be much helpful for the success of the Nepal Tourism Year 2011," he said. NTIDC has deployed teams for profiling districts since September 2009 and the work is expected to complete within two years.

In the city areas and district headquarters hotels with good facilities are essential but in rural areas and villages home stay system is good. The government has also promoted home stay system in view of Nepal Tourism Year 2011.

Pradhan said tourism-related cooperative should be set up for investing in home stay system and other tourism activities at local level.

According to him this will provide employment opportunities, help develop infrastructures and benefit the local community.

Pradhan pointed at the need for producing efficient tourist guides skilled in English, Chinese, Japanese and other major foreign languages.
