The tourism entrepreneurs have demanded the government immediately ensure a provision to take tour guides and porters with the foreign visitors in trekking.The Trekking Agents Association of Nepal (TAAN) demanded to make a legal provision to arrange a guide and porter compulsorily as the cases of foreigners missing were increased when they were allowed to trek alone.TAAN Vice-chairman Jangbu Sherpa said the tourism entrepreneurs have demanded such legal provision keeping in view of tourists' security and facilities, adding that the tourists, however, could go alone in the routes that are busy in all seasons.
He said the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation has positively responded to their demands in the adventurous trekking routes like Langtang and others.Surendra Prasad Sapkota, Under-Secretary at the Ministry of the Tourism and Civil Aviation, said the ministry is holding talks with the Ministry of Home Affairs regarding the demand of entrepreneurs though they have not reached a conclusion.
