The country has announced the issuance of permits to conquer the Himalayas mountains for the opening of the autumn climbing season.
The government of Nepal has decided to open access to Everest expeditions by the beginning of the autumn season. This was reported by Travel + Leisure.
вЂњThe world's highest peak, Mount Everest, will reopen to travelers this fall after climbing in Nepal was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic,вЂќ the report said.
The Kingdom announced the issuance of permits to conquer the mountains of the Himalayas for the opening of the autumn climbing season, which lasts from September to November.
It is noted that most annual tourists and climbers visit Nepal in the fall. Thus, by opening access, the country hopes to boost the economy, which has fallen significantly due to the pandemic.
According to the latest data, 21,750 cases of COVID-19 have been laboratory confirmed in Nepal, of which 15,389 resulted in recovery and 65 in death.
Recall that since March 14, the Nepalese authorities have suspended the issuance of tourist visas and canceled all mountaineering expeditions due to the coronavirus epidemic.
As reported, the Ministry of the health of the country may report the first victim of COVID-19 in the Kingdom.
