A total of 2,475 foreign tourists have come for the Annapurna circuit trek in the first three months of the year 2023.

The tourists included 1,678 male and 797 female, according to the Tourism Assistant at Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) Tourist CheckPoint in Dharapani, Chettra Bahadur Gurung. Around 40 to 50 tourists arrive in the ACAP area every day.

The number of tourists visiting the Annapurna region has not been able to rise significantly, worrying the tourism entrepreneurs.

Even after the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, tourism business has not been able to gain any momentum, said tourism entrepreneur Pancha Bahadur Gurung.
