TAAN concerned at resorts closure

 

Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal’s (TAAN) on June 29 said that its attention had been seriously drawn to the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation’s (DNPWC) decision to close seven jungle resorts operating inside Chitwan National Park from July 15.

“TAAN feels that the concerned government offices kept hundreds of tourism professionals in dark by not informing industry people about the terms and conditions of the lease agreement on time,” TAAN said in a statement.

TAAN also urged the government to address the demands of hundreds of tourism professionals – ignoring the demands of a handful of people close to power centers – and close the resorts forever.

“At a time when our protected areas are becoming the example of conservation in global arena, we urge the government not to take any decision that puts our protected areas in peril,” the release stated.
