ITAHARI, 18 OCTOBER. Ilam has added a new destination to its list of dozens of popular tourist destinations.

Another local and popular poet, Sundar Kurup, informed that Kuse Danda was also called ‘Ngin Kokma’ in the indigenous Limbu language. Locals use both names.

The Kuse Danda Tourism Promotion Committee has also been formed to make it a must-visit travel point within two years. A viewpoint, walking pavement, picnic spot and platforms have been constructed in Kuse Danda.

Similarly, Dhruva Lawati, chairperson of ward 1 Chulachuli Rural Municipality said the detailed project report was also finalized for further infrastructural development in the area.
