TAAN organizes clean-up drives at trekking trails

Posted Jun 24th, 2012 under Tourism News, Trekking & Hiking,

Trekking Agencies’ Association Nepal (TAAN) has begun a clean-up drive in the major trekking trails of the country. The campaign was launched from Langtang where a week long clean up drive from June 5th to 10th saw volunteers cleaning up waste and garbage dumped along the trails leading to Gosainkunda and Kanjing Gompa. The collected garbage which weighed around 700 kg was brought to Kathmandu for disposal. The association is planning to organize similar clean-up drives at other trails too with the help of locals.

Cable Car to Connect Gosainkunda & Dhunche

Posted May 5th, 2011 under Tourism News,

The pilgrimage site of  Gosainkunda will soon be connected to Dhunche via cable car. Inaugurating the Gosainkunda-Langtang Festival in Rasuwa district, Nepalese prime minister Jhala Nath Khanal said that the project will receive as much help as possible from the government. The installation and operation of the cable car service will be carried out with the partnership of the government and private sector, said the PM.
Many Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims take an ardous trek to Gosainkunda Lake (situated at an elevation of 4500 meters) every year during the full moon festival of Janai Purnima.
