Trekking thru Annapurna circuit restricted after blizzards

Following dozens of death by blizzards, authorities have restricted tourists to trek through some parts of the Annapurna circuit for time being.

According to the Trekking Agents Association of Nepal (TAAN), trekkers now cannot pass through the trekking route above upper Mustang.

The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) is regulating the trekking activities in the area.

It has stopped collecting fees and giving approvals to trekkers to go beyond upper Mustang citing security reasons, according to West Regional President of TAAN, Ramchandra Sharma.
