Locals can reach Besisahar of Lamjung from Chame, and Chame from Besisahar, on a vehicle after the district, which is known as the district beyond the Himalayas, was linked with road network for the first time.


Vice-Chairman of the National Planning Commission, Dipendra Bahadur Chhetri, said now the Manang district has been linked with road network and road has reached Chame.

The 27th meeting of the National Development Problem Resolution Committee held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai on Monday informed this.

Public vehicles are going to operate their services on the 68-kilometer-long road from Besisahar of Lamjung to Chame and Chame to Besisahar from Wednesday.

The happiness of Locals of Manang knows no bound with the operation of transport services. The district is linked with road network thanks to the relentless labour of the Nepal Army.

An all-party meeting recently held under the coordination of Chief District Officer temporarily determined Rs. 950 as fare to reach the district headquarters, Chame.

Similarly, the meeting also fixed transportation charge of one kg of goods as Rs. 13. The NA had taken the responsibility of constructing the road from Manang Chautara of Besisahar on July 16, 2001.

According to NA senior officer, Indiwar Gurung, they completed the target of the government of road construction on time.

It is expected that there will be great change in tourism and local development of Manang district after the construction of the road. Before this, another district Mustang, which is also beyond the Himalayas, has already been linked with the road network.

Department of Roads had started the construction of the road from Besisahar. Before this, the government had given the responsibility to the NA to construct the road as it was very difficult to construct it.

The NA had completed the track opening of the road at a cost of Rs. 760 million.Two NA personnel had lost their lives last year in connection with the road construction.

Gurung said the NA fulfilled the wishes of the people facing different difficulties by completing the responsibility of road construction given by the government.
Minister for Physical Planning and Works, Hridayesh Tripathi, who had recently carried out on-site visit of the road, highly appraised the NA for linking the district with road network.

Trekking route has been shortened after the construction of the road linking Basisahar with Chame.Around 100,000 tourists go on trekking in the route every year, it is learnt.
