Sherpa, who has been working in the hospitality field abroad for 10-12 years, has run the Dzonga Family House on the basis of returning to his home country. He started this family house about a year ago. It is not only the hotel over herein, other hotels and guest houses are also there in the Ghunsa area.

Sherpa says the Dzonga Family House is built in an eco-friendly environment. Tourists visiting Kanchanjunga are offered local food as well as Western food. Not all foreign tourists are looking for locals. He says I have a good knowledge of the tastes of foreigners, and accordingly, I make Western food. Western food also includes pizza, pasta, muffins, and bakery items. Coils and wooden heaters have been installed in the hotel’s restaurant area to keep warm. There is also a campfire and music facility to entertain the tourists at night. Tourists who are tired after reaching the base camp return from here having a lot of fun.

Sherpa says the trekking routes need to be further streamlined to develop the Ghunsa area and increase tourism here. There has been talking of connecting roads to Ghunsa along with development, but connecting roads does not support Ghunsa’s tourism. The more priority you give to trekking, the more you will benefit from tourism. He further added that trekking should be made more systematic than road network.
