Tourists flocking to Annapurna and Dhaulagiri areas

MYAGDI, April 19:Domestic tourists are flocking to Myagdi's tourism attractions to celebrate Nepal's New Year 2080.

The two consecutive days of public holidays, the number of domestic tourists visiting the district to celebrate the new year as a festival has surged.

Domestic visitors have increased their arrival at Ghorepani, Poonhill, Mohredanda, Khopara, Swargashram, Beldhunga, Ruise, Ghazne, Todke, and other sites to celebrate the new year. The number of foreign tourists climbing Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains  has increased as the weather has improved.

Domestic visitors have begun to visit Mt Annapurna's base camp area, according to Tej Gurung of Annapurna Rural Municipality-4 Narchang. He stated that because the road network has made it easier to get to the base camp region, the amount of people arriving on foot has increased.

More visitors have arrived in Annapurna rural municipality-6 Ghorepani-Poon Hill area of Myagdi, which is served by the circular Annapurna trekking route. According to Run Bahadur Pun, a hotelier in Ghorepani, the number of guests on the occasion of New Year's has increased significantly due to the pleasant weather for tourists and the luxuriant blossoms of Laliguras in the forest.

Pun, who manages a tea and coffee shop in Poonhill, which is 3,200 meters above sea level, said that more than 700 people arrive every day. "Foreign tourists have increased this season, and the number of students visiting during the holidays has also increased," Pun, a tourism businessman, said.

Tourism entrepreneurs are ecstatic as the 30 hotels in Ghorepani and the community lodge in Mohredanda fill up every day. Foreign and domestic tourists come to this region to experience the sunrise, deep forest, and biodiversity, in addition to viewing more than a dozen summits of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri glaciers from a single location.
