Kanchenjunga Area welcomes visitors as Spring season begins

TAPLEJUNG: With the onset of this year's spring season, the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area has commenced welcoming both domestic and international tourists.

Tourists typically flock to the Kanchenjunga region during two distinct seasons for trekking, mountaineering, and other adventurous activities, given its status as the home to the world's third-tallest peak.

During the spring season, which extends from March to the first week of June, tourists embark on their journeys to explore the breathtaking landscapes of Kanchenjunga.

The Kanchenjunga Conservation Area Management Council reported that on Wednesday alone, 60 foreign visitors arrived at the Ghunsa area, signaling the beginning of tourist influx for the season.

Tasi Tenzing, an Assistant at the Council, noted that hotels along the trekking route have resumed operations in anticipation of the arrival of tourists.

In the first season of this year, 650 foreigners have already visited the area, although records of domestic tourists were not maintained.

Last year, a total of 439 foreigners explored the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, indicating a steady interest in the region's natural beauty and adventure offerings.

With 52 hotels currently operational along the trekking route leading to the base camp of Kanchenjunga mountain, tourism serves as a vital source of income for the local communities residing in the Kanchenjunga region.

The reopening of tourism activities in the area promises opportunities for economic growth and cultural exchange, reaffirming the region's significance as a prime destination for adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.
