Tourists throng Annapurna region despite Nilofar warning


BESHISHAHAR: Despite the wide warnings that the Cyclone Nilofar can affect weather patterns in West Nepal, the number of tourists visiting the Annapurna region has not decreased.

Around 1,000 trekkers, porters and guides have entered the Annapurna circuit from Lamjung in a week from October 23 to 29, according to Tourist Information Centre, Beshishahar.

A tourism entrepreneur of Manang district, Binod Gurung, said around 80 to 100 foreign tourists are visiting the upper Manang area on a daily basis. He also shared his confidence that weather in the upper part remains clear throughout next week.

The terror of the Cyclone, however, still looms large as lower parts of Manang and Lamjung districts underwent frequent change in weather patterns. Locals have reported numerous drizzles in a day and decrease in temperature.

District Administration Offices in Manang and Lamjung have alerted the trekkers not to take risk and consider weather updates while endeavouring trekking.

But, the Tourist Information Centre in Beshishahar reported that tourists are likely to ignore the notice.

At least 43 persons were killed in blizzards and avalanches, triggered by the Cyclone Hudhud, in the Annapurna region in the third week of October.
