Kathmandu, March 6
Pokhara-Jomsom flight has reopened on Sunday after a halt of around three months.
The flight connecting Pokhara, Nepal’s tourism capital, with Jomsom, the gateway to Muktinath, a popular pilgrimage site and the entire upper Mustang region, another popular tourism destination, was halted in December 2021 due to the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Tara Air is operating the flight on this route.
The company says it conducted five flights on Sunday, and most of the passengers were Indian and other foreign nationals.
Thousands of Nepali and Indian pilgrims visit Muktinath every year.
