As, their living cost is usually higher than what is being paid at the hotel, they are forced to work as a prostitute.
The hotel girls consider themselves of higher standard than those found in restaurants. They usually operate in Lakeside area. They are well dressed, well behaved and are always having fun. That is because, their clients are found in such area. These girls usually operate so secretly that their friends might not even get the clue of their real profession.

Call Girls in Pokhara
Call girls are those girls that are available on a phone call. When there are parties, businessmen call these types of girls and have fun with them. They are called to have fun at the party. After the party, they also go with the clients to their hotel or rooms to have fun for the night. They look modern, and are educated and from well-to-do families. Instead of calling them a callgirl, they prefer to call them “company girl”.
Although the profession is same – selling their bodies for money, they come with a value in addition. They look smart and act smart. They like to go with the partner of their own age and they do negotiate for the price and the service. They have a network of friends who have unlimited supplies of girls according to the need of the clients.
This is an investigative report series about callgirls in Pokhara, the tourist-destination in Nepal. Although such a trade is no legal in Nepal, the legal enforcement is not enough to stop such trade. These girls run their business in hotels restaurants and other public places. But, all women working in such businesses can’t be generalized. There are a lot of shady business practices but police do take action from time to time.
The business of love is one of the most ancient business of mankind. Although it is not legal in Nepal, it is nearly impossible to control and stop the trade. Because of the the restriction, a lot of crime in the business is not brought into court. That has created a lack of law and order among these people. Although the police arrests such girls from some hotels and restaurants from time to time, there are other places where no police intervention could be made. Many police officers are also the regular clients of the girls. This report is prepared based on police investigation, conversation with workers girls, hotel and restaurant owners, public, taxi drivers and social investigators. Every types of girls are in such business. There are girls in labour workers, professionals and celebrities involved in such businesses.
Each of these professional will be discussed in details in upcoming series.
These types of girls and women are easy to find. Although they serve foods, these restaurants are more focused on girls than the foods. So, most of these restaurants have cabins and they serve limited amount of foods and a lot of drinks. Some even don’t have a cook as they only serve dry foods or foods ordered from other restaurants.
