TAAN surveys Timal area for proposed tourism memorial park

A 19-member team of Trekking Agencies' Association (TAAN) on January 19 organized a survey tour of Timal area in Kavre district to select a site for building Tourism Memorial Park.

The team was jointly led by Senior Vice President Kul Bahadur Gurung and Executive Member Palsang Tamang. TAAN executive members, general members hailing from Timal and TAAN staffers were present in the team.

The team visited Kot Timal, Narayansthan, Kurans Chabakhure and Thulo Parsel areas to select suitable site for the proposed park. "We have found a small hillock in Kurans Chabakhure VDC Ward No. 7 area ideal for the park as it offers beautiful views of snow-capped peaks, beautiful villages, lush-green forests as well as Sunkoshi and Roshi rivers," Tamang said. "We will now recommend the TAAN executive committee to build tourism memorial park in the area."

The proposal to build Tourism Memorial Park in Timal area was included in Proposed Programs and Activities for 2014/15 presented by General Secretary Sagar Pandey in the recently held 36th annual general meeting of TAAN.

"We also studied the prospects of promoting homestay tourism and short trekking package in the area," said Tamang.

Based on the reports of the survey team, TAAN executive committee will devise a master plan for the development of Tourism Memorial Park.
