Nepal ready to assure safety- Trekking routes in Everest and Annapurna to be examined

The officials of Nepal Tourism Board have decided to invite the international experts to assess trekking routes of Nepal. The assessment will include the quake affected trekking routes including the popular Everest and Annapurna Regions. Once the team of national and international experts do the inspection of these trekking routes, the team will declare safe to only those routes, which are absolutely safe for the hikers.

The quake that triggered landslides and avalanches in Everest, Langtang and Manaslu Regions has caused significant damages in the routes. Langtang and Manaslu Regions are closed for hikers at the moment. For rest of the trekking routes an assessment to assure safety has been essential.

“After the quake it is essential to examine and certify that the routes are safe,” said Tulsi Prasad Gautam, Deputy General of Tourism department.

Gautam added that international trekking operators are concern about clients’ safety, as well as insurance companies show slight interest to cover trekkers visiting Nepal.

Sources say, the team of geologists will survey the trails of Everest and Annapurna Regions in a month’s time. The trails of other regions will also be surveyed if necessary.
