The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) identified an alternative trekking trail in Manang district. ACAP started exploring new trail after the popular trails of Annapurna region were shortened with the construction of motorable roads.
Narendra Lama, ACAP Pokhara official, said, “The new route assures magnificent views of different mountain peaks and allows trekkers to enjoy cultural diversity, away from the dusty roads.”
“It helps in the development of Annapurna’s trekking industry,” added Lama.
ACAP has allocated Rs 400 million for the development of new trail.
