A new trekking route has been opened in Mapya Dudhkoshi rural municipality in Solukhumbhu district.

The new trekking route was launched as a new tourism destination by the rural municipality and Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) in collaboration with the Nepal Tourism Board.

Buddhi Kumar Rajbhandari, former minister of Koshi Province, Buddhi Kiran Rai, Chairperson of Mapya Dudhkoshi rural municipality, and Nilhari Bastola, Chairperson of TAAN, jointly inaugurated the trekking route amid a program organized at Silgudhi Danda of Mapya Dudhkoshi-5 in the district today.

The newly opened trekking route could be completed in four nights and five days, shared Chairperson Rai. The route begins from Silgudhi and ends in Mahabhir via Ghumremera, Kudham, Yetelama, Rapcha, Majhgaun, Khastav, Bhumethan and Pasda Jharana.

Province Assembly member Bhandari emphasized everyone's cooperation in the development of the tourism sector which is one of the mainstays of the national economy. He opined that if the tourists coming to visit the Sagarmatha area could be attracted here, the tourism of this area could pick a pace.

Similarly, TAAN's Chairperson Bastola expressed his happiness to open a new trekking route in the district housing the highest mountain in the world - Sagarthama (Mt Everest).

He, however, lamented that Nepal could not attract at least 1 million tourists annually to the country of Sagarmatha and Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha.

He also voiced his concern that the trekking routes were destroyed by opening road tracks indiscriminately. He also said that the tourism entrepreneurs involved in the trekking business were suffering since the government was ignorant about them.

Likewise, trekking route coordinator and tourism entrepreneur Choldrendra Bahadur Karki called for publicizing and promoting the newly opened track as a new tourism destination.

Prakash Khaling, a member of the rural municipality, shared that a planned program was taken forward for tourism promotion in Mapya rural municipality and it would be carried out effectively.

Record holder mountaineer Kamirita Sherpa, who has climbed Sagarmatha (Mt Everest) for the 28th time, asserted that the tourism sector could be developed easily if we could show the hidden natural and historical tourist attractions.

Local tourism entrepreneur Manbir Khaling said that trekkers could trek to Dudhkunda mountain, Sagarmatha, and Mera Peak area from the newly opened trekking route.

On the occasion, the Nepal Tourism Board, TAAN, climber Sherpa, and the Mountain Guide Association of Nepal were honored.
