Incessant rainfall disrupts flights in Mugu

MUGU, July 07: Passengers have been hit hard due to disruption of air service in Mugu, Jumla and Humla districts for the past four days. The incessant rainfall halted the flights. 

A local Hari Krishna Aidi said he was waiting for three days to travel to Kathmandu by plane, but finally compelled to travel by bus on Friday due to continued cancellation of flights. He shared that he resorted to travelling by bus after there was no sign of improvement in weather. Chief of Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, Rara, Sri Krishna Rijal, mentioned that there was no flights from Nepalgunj for the past four days. 

The possibility of air service to these districts is very low due to adverse weather today. Passengers are therefore forced to travel from the Karnali Highway, keeping their lives at risk. Similarly, the flights have been disrupted at Simkot from Wednesday due to hostile weather, explained Chief of CAAN office, Simkot, Mahendra Bahadur Singh. 

Tourists visiting the Rara, one of the most frequented tourist destinations of the country, generally reach the place after flight at Rara airport in Mugu.
