Direct public transportation service is likely to be available soon from Pokhara to Jomsom and vice-versa.
The bus/jeep service is coming about as direct air service connecting the two tourist destinations in Kaski and Mustang district is not regular and not affordable for many.
Accordingly, the Mustang and Prithivi Highway Bus Entrepreneurs Committee have decided to run direct public transportation service from Jomsom to Pokhara and vice-versa starting coming March 15.
A discussion on the same will be held with the Dhaulagiri Zonal Bus Entrepreneurs Committee and Myagdi Jeep and Bus Entrepreneurs Committee, said Chair of Mustang Jeep and Bus Proprietors Committee Jayandra Lal Thakali.
Presently, direct public transportation including bus and jeep service is available only from Jomsom to Beni and vice-versa.
The direct transportation service linking the two tourist destinations is expected to benefit domestic and foreign tourists. The decision to start direct public transportation service is very positive, said Chief District Officer of Mustang Baburam Bhandari. RSS
