Hotels based in touristic sites in Myagdi, which remained closed for the past nine months, have reopened today. Similarly, religious shrines are also open.

Hotels at Ghorepani and Poon Hill, popular tourist destinations along the world-famous Annapurna Circuit Trek, were closed in late March due to the Covid-19 crisis.

It is said all health and safety measures are to be adopted while resuming hotels, restaurants and religious sites.

According to Ghorepani-based hotelier Teksar Buddhuja Pun, domestic tourists have already started visiting the area where the investors suffered much due to the long closure of the businesses. “We are now already to welcome potential guests from home and abroad by adopting all the safety measures,” he says.

Likewise, devotees are now allowed to pay homage to shrines such as Galeshwar Dham, known as the Pashupatinath in the west Myagdi and Maharani Than, among others.

According to Galeshwar Area Development Trust Office Secretary Ram Bahadur Baniya, arrangements are in place for letting devotees pay homage to the temple.

High safety measures have been adopted. Different gates are used to enter and exit the temple. The devotees are required to wash hands with soap and water, wear a mask before entering the temple premises.
