Manang, September 29

The Manang District Administration Office has allowed the entrance of foreign tourists to the district amid Covid-19. But, it has imposed health protocols.

The visitors must have a Covid-19 test report, hotel bookings and be fully vaccinated against the virus, says Chief District Officer Bishnu Lamichhane.

“The infection has not been controlled fully. Only infection rate is decreasing. Health protocols should be followed while reviving tourism amid the infection,” he says.

The decision in this regard was taken by the meetings of the District Covid-19 Crisis Management Committee and the District Administration Office, he says.

Meanwhile, one visiting the district needs to take permission from the district administration. Those entering the district should be tested for the infection.

The peak season for tourism in Manang is from September to November in general.
