Barpak which was at the epicenter of the 2015 (April 25) mega earthquake is a key tourist destination. It was an attractive destination for tourist even before the earthquake. The roof of the more than 1,400 houses in the village were uniform in appearance, all covered with slate (thinly sliced metamorphic rock) and their walls were built of stones. However, following the reconstruction of the village after the earthquake, most rooftops of houses have been covered with corrugated tin sheets. Homestays in Barpak are popular accommodation options for visitors which is predominantly a Ghale community village.
