Road networks leading to Annapurna rural municipality-11, Ghandruk – the tourism destination of the district – has been disrupted due to the obstruction caused by the landslide.
Spokesperson of District Police Office Kaski DSP Subash Hamal informed that the vehicular movement has come to a halt with the disruption of Nayapul-Ghandruk road.
He further shared that the road traffic has been disrupted after landslides took place at Sadi Rivulet of Annapurna-10 at 10.00 pm last night.
Following the obstruction of the road, tourists heading to base camp from Pokhara via Ghandruk have been stranded on the way.
According to him, vehicles moving to Ghandruk from Pokhara are being parked at Birethanti after traffic disruption. Likewise, the vehicles returning to Pokhara from Ghandruk have also been asked to take patience.
