The Uttargaya area in Tupche VDC, which is connected to Bidur Municipality of Nuwakot, is being developed as a tourist destination. Locals said that it could not be developed as a tourist area due to lack of publicity. In ancient times, Lord Shiva originated a cane vehicle.
Keshav Poudel, a local, said that Nepalis go to South Gaya in India only due to lack of publicity. It is mentioned in the Puranas that if one goes to North Gaya, located on the banks of the river Trishuli, which is the main site of Gaya, and pays homage to his father, he will be freed. Poudel said that the name Vetravati was due to the place where Mahadev quenched his thirst by pouring water on the ground with a cane. Uttargaya
Although this area is the road to Gosainkunda, due to lack of publicity, the locals have taken initiative for the development of Uttargaya area which has potential for religious and natural tourism. Chairman of the organization Bishnu Bogati said that the organization is working for the development of the region by identifying the areas of religious, historical, cultural and mythological importance in the region in the name of Uttargaya Region.

He said that the historical, natural and religious site of Bhairamkot, the place where Prithvinarayan Shah first built his fort for the unification of Nepal, is still limited to history. The people of Tupche have lamented that such an important place should be developed as an open book for history students and those interested in history. This place, which is a stepping stone for the unification of Nepal, can be developed as a tourist area and one can enjoy the natural scenery from there. The Bagh Bhairav Temple, the main deity of this place, is also located in this fort, so its importance is even greater. Uttargaya
Kalipokhari located in Ward No. 7 of Tupche VDC is another tourist attraction. The importance of Kalipokhari near the Tamang settlement is also due to the fact that it is located in an underground cave. The pond in the gorge of a small cave at a place where drinking water is required from 10 km away is a unique example of nature. Uttargaya
