Proceedings of the interaction workshop on planning for sustainable tourism in Namkha Rural Municipality, Humla

  • ICIMOD
  • Summary

Namkha, a gateway to Mt Kailash, is a culturally unique and biologically diverse region in the Nepal Himalaya. Our Kailash Sacred Landscape Conservation and Development Initiative supported the Namkha Rural Municipality in drafting a five-year sustainable tourism plan. In February 2021, we organized an interactive workshop in Kathmandu, where a draft of the plan was made public for stakeholder feedback. The workshop validated the findings of the plan, provided a platform to share feedback, and helped garner support for its finalization and implementation. This is expected to help Namkha emerge as a tourism destination in its own right, not just a gateway to Mt Kailash.
