Trekking, mountaineering activities open from Oct 17
Nepal is all set to open for touristic activities such as trekking and mountaineering from October 17.
The government made this decision along with other measures as steps towards further easing the ongoing pandemic-restrictions. A meeting of the cabinet held Monday (14 sep.) took a decision to this effect, the newly appointed government spokesperson, Minister Pradeep Gyawali informed.
Nepalis and foreigners will be allowed to go for trekking and mountaineering which are, at the moment, suspended owing to the fear of further spread of the steadily increasing coronavirus infections in the country.
Likewise, it has been decided that travel and trekking agencies, hotels and restaurants that have their operations suspended at the moment would be allowed to resume services from September 17.
