New Pedestrian Trail Opens in Sekung Valley, Mustang

Pedestrian Trail in Sekung Valley,Mustang.

A pedestrian trail has been constructed to install prayer flags in Sekungtal, located in Thasang Rural Municipality-2, Mustang. This project aims to extend the residence of tourists visiting Mustang into the Sekung valley, in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation and Thasang Rural Municipality. The construction of the pedestrian trail, measuring 191 meters and adorned with round-shaped stones along the edges, was confirmed by Engineer Vishnu Bhanstola from Thasang Rural Municipality. He mentioned the inclusion of a 124.5-meter retaining wall to prevent flood damage near the lake and the construction of two public toilets near the lake’s vicinity.

Moreover, Engineer Bhanstola stated that a 5.10-kilometer road connecting Beni-Jomsom highway to Sekung was also constructed. This initiative, funded 70% by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation and 30% by Thasang Rural Municipality, aims to improve connectivity and promote tourism in the region. Additionally, prior infrastructure development projects amounting to NPR 19,997,126 have been completed at Butarchot, Titital, and Gurungsanghu caves.

The Chairman of Thasang Rural Municipality-2, Santosh Shrestha, highlighted the effectiveness of the retaining walls and retaining canals in controlling erosion and landslide issues faced by the region. The Sekungtal area, situated at an elevation of 2,725 meters above sea level, offers panoramic views of Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri Himalayas. It features a vast expanse of 150 meters in length and 20 meters in width, making it a prime location for observing wildlife and birds amidst the jungle and serene environment. Trekking enthusiasts can embark on a five-minute hike from Sekungtal to reach Bhurchhatothal, where the natural beauty amplifies the charm of the lake, attracting tourists from all around. The Holiday Camp Hotel in Tangsara, previously deserted, is now bustling with tourists following road and trail construction and lake preservation efforts.
