BHAKTAPUR, Dec. 12: Tourist arrival has upped significantly at Nagarkot, the tourism hub of Bhaktapur district, with the onset of tourism season.

Local tourism entrepreneurs have said the number of tourists visiting Nagarkot has increased since the last one week. Tourist arrival was not that high until a month back.

New big hotels have also come up in Nagarkot with the increase in the arrival of domestic and foreign tourists. There are 36 big and small hotels in Nagarkot. Four big hotels have come up this year, said Deepak Lamichhane, a tourism entrepreneur and Secretary of the Nagarkot Naldum Tourism Development Committee.

All the hotels combined have the capacity to accommodate up to 600 tourists. Before this the total accommodation capacity was 400 in the past.
