ACAP's travel warning after landslides hit north-eastern Kaski

POKHARA: The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) has issued a travel warning, asking travellers not to visit areas in the north-eastern side of Kaski district as they have been hit by floods and landslides recently.

Information Officer at ACAP Central Office in Pokhara, Bikhyat Sherchan, issued a public notice requesting travellers to avoid places already hit by and still are at the high risk of such calamities.

Meanwhile, a road to Sikles, a popular tourist destination, in Parche VDC has also been obstructed due to a landslide.

Similarly, roads connecting Pokhara to places including Chasu, Yangjakot, Saimarang, Bhachok and Nagidhar have also been obstructed due to landslide debris.

At some points, the roads have caved-in, making vehicular movements impossible, Sherchan informed.

Meanwhile, ACAP alerted tourists not to go to Taprang Danda, just above the Upper Madi Hydropower dam as sporadic landslides have been reported there.

ACAP, however, has refuted rumours about floods in Madi River.
