With an upsurge in visitors in recent months, the Kanchenjunga region’s tourism industry is gradually returning to its previous state.
Kanchenjunga witnessed an increased number of tourists
In the last four months, 439 visitors from various nations have visited the area.
After COVID-19 spread, tourism-related activity in the area remained almost nonexistent.
Man Kumar Limbu, the secretary at the Kanchanjungha Conservation and Management Council Office, stated that the tourist industry is ecstatic about the rise in visitors in recent months and that it is a significant source of income for them.
Over 50 hotels are currently open along the Kanchanjugha hiking path.
Four more hotels with investments totaling more than Rs 10 million each are already operating, in addition to the Singi Namjong Hotel, which was created with an investment of over Rs 70 million and is providing services out of Gyalpa village in Phaktanglung Rural Municipality 6.
Pema Sherpa, a hotelier from Ghunsa, claimed that the presence of travelers had given business owners cause for optimism.
Two different hiking routes may reach the Kanchenjunga base camp.
Through Ganesh Chowk of Panchthar district, travelers get to the base camp along the Sirijungha Rural Municipality in Taplejung district.
The Phaktanglung Rural Municipality trail might also be used to go to the Kanchenjunga base camp after arriving at Suketar Airport in the Taplejung district.
