The tourism entrepreneurs have informed that the construction work of the hotels around Annapurna Base Camp have been completed and they will re open from August 18 of this year.
All the hotels of the Hotels were shut down due to the heavy snowfall which had destructed the hotel and after its construction it will be operated from 18th of August. Hotel entrepreneur of Annapurna Base Camp JB Gurung said that there was delay in the construction work as there was difficulty in bringing the materials required and they had to bring the necessary materials through donkeys, helicopters and potters.
All hotels in the area had been shud down since March this year following heavy snowfall, which destroyed four hotels in the area beyond repair, said Gopal Shrestha, a spokesperson for the Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN). Around 4 million rupees has been invested while re constructing the hotels.
