Fulkharka agritourism :

Agritourism in Fulkharka village is about traditional rice farming. It starts from June / July and lasts till October. Rice is main staple food of Nepal. Researches show that the rice productivity of Nepal is lower compared to leading rice producing countries. It is only 3 tons / hectors. There are several factors such as dependency on rain, labor shortage and traditional farming technologies. Agritourism and agricultural volunteer is about learning the traditional terrace farming in Nepal and helping them by the means of tourism.
