The inflow of domestic and foreign tourists has shot up in the trans-Himalayan touristic district, Mustang, with the fear of coronavirus infection receding of late.

Tourism entrepreneurs are happy right at the moment when daily around 3,000 tourists are entering the department through land and air routes. Along with a rise in the influx, the landscape of the marvellous tourism hotspot has also changed.

Jomsom Airport sources say daily 15 flights are taking place now in Mustang – the centre of attraction for domestic and domestic tourists. Likewise, there seems a long queue of land transport vehicles on the Beni-Jomsom road leading to Muktinath and Lomanthang.

Lately, over 2,000 tourists are daily entering the district via land routes, according to police. Likewise, Jomsom Airport Chief Puskal Raj Sharma says over 250 tourists are arriving in the district via air daily.

Tourism entrepreneurs say the arrival of tourists via air and land routes has invariably upped in Mustang which saw almost zero mobility of tourists during a two-year hiatus of the Covid pandemic.
