The tourism business in the Kanchenjunga area is gradually coming to its previous status with the increased number of tourist arrivals in recent months. A total of 439 tourists from different countries visited the region in the past four months, it is said.

Tourism activities in the region remained almost nil after COVID-19 spread.

Secretary at Kanchenjunga Conservation and Management Council Office Man Kumar Limbu said that the tourism entrepreneurs are excited after the increased number of visitors in recent months adding that tourism is a major source of income for them.

Currently, there are more than 50 hotels including big and small in operation on the Kanchenjunga trekking route.

Singi Namjong Hotel established with an investment of Rs 70 million plus is offering services from Gyalpa village of Phaktanglung Rural Municipality-6, while four other hotels have more than Rs 10 million investment each in operation.

Hotelier Pema Sherpa from Ghunsa said the arrival of tourists has made the entrepreneurs hopeful of their business through the pandemic time was disappointing for them.

Two trekking routes are used to reach the Kanchenjunga base camp. The visitors reach the base camp along the Sirijungha Rural Municipality in Taplejung district through Ganesh Chowk of Panchthar district to climb Mt Kanchenjunga, the third tallest peak in the world.

Likewise, the Kanchenjunga base camp could be reached by using the trail along the Phaktanglung Rural Municipality after landing at Suketar Airport in the Taplejung district.
