2024 Mar 26, 20:32,

Rescue training has been provided to women guides to promote safe tourism. Nepal Tourism Board and Pasang Lhamu Mountaineering Foundation have provided seven days rescue training to women guides.

Based on the course required to become a mountain guide, the skills of saving and rescuing from accidents during trekking and mountain climbing were taught during the training, said trainer Lambabu Sherpa. The training was conducted in the Jagdol forest of Kathmandu with the technical support of the Nepal Mountaineering Trainers' Association.

The president of Pasang Lhamu Mountaineering Foundation, Dawa Footi Sherpa, said that this training will be effective in controlling the number of deaths of tourists during trekking and climbing. She said that it is necessary to organize such trainings because manpower without skills and competences sends a negative message in the tourism sector.

Hikmat Singh Ayer, Senior Director of Nepal Tourism Board, said that this training was organized for the first time in which 25 women guides participated in the rescue. He said that there is a need to develop such skilled human resources to fulfill the objectives of the tourism decade (2023-2033) set by the government.

The trainers said that the training was conducted in such a way as to be able to easily rescue when people trapped in crevices during climbing.

According to the organizers, the training will help the participants to become international mountain guides.
