Looking at the statistics of the Immigration Office in Kailali and Kanchanpur, it seems that foreign tourists are increasing day by day, however, the tourist spots here are not among the choices of tourists who come to Nepal through India as a third country.
The number of tourists going to the Far West to visit Kathmandu, Pokhara, Rara, Manang, Mustang, and other places is increasing. According to the Immigration Office, despite the decrease in the number of tourists coming from third countries, the number of Indian tourists is around 3/400 per month.

They suggest that the provincial government should bring special programs for tourism promotion to maintain foreign tourists in the province. Leaflets, pamphlets, and various hoarding boards should be put up for the promotion of tourist spots in the province.
