The establishment of a tourist check-post and an information center in Muktinath of Mustang district has facilitated tourists visiting the important religious site in the western Himalayas of Nepal.
The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) set up the check-post to maintain full details of tourists entering the district and arriving for trekking in the Thorang La mountain pass, according to ACAP Jomsom Chief Bidur Kuinkel.
Presently, two employees are stationed at the check-post and the ACAP is planning for the management of additional human resources there.
Besides, tourists can take all necessary information about their destination including weather condition, trekking route, geography and other services available there from the information center.
The new tourism infrastructure in Mustang is expected to ease the rescue of visitors at a time of possible disasters.
