Sharp decline of tourists in ACAP2016-01-31 10:06:49


Around the Annapurna Trekking trail which is one of the world’s best targets of the glob has suffered terribly due to the Earthquake and blockade by India.

During the year of 2015, number of arrivals in the area had gone down. Annapurna Round used to receive over crowded visitors in earlier years.

Compared to 2014, the trail received only 80,000 visitors which is 50,000 less than during the year of 2014. The impressive attractiveness of the trek path by the side of Kaski, Mustang, Myagdi, Manang and Lamjung districts attracts the visitors from around the whole earth.

On those five districts a total number of 600 hotels of small and big scale are in process in the routs.

As per the hotel owners on the route they are going to close their business due to lack of tourists.  Due to the political instability and lack of fuel, and also the natural disaster in the nation

A decline of over fifty thousand visitors is not a small issue. This would give nearly over Rs 1.5 billion to the country.

As per the Annapurna Conservation Area Project office the tourists would spend 3,000 RS a day and they would stay at least over seven days.
