“The services and facilities at Medical Aid-post at Manang of Annapurna Region, Everest Base Camp and Temporary Medical Camp at Gosainkunda will be strengthened,” Bhatta said.

“The association has contributed a lot to promote mountain tourism by making mountains of Nepal safer for mountaineers, trekkers, guides and porters besides providing medical service and rescue assistance to the people suffering from high altitude sickness in the mountains,” he added.

Thousands of people are getting medical services and rescue assistance in the mountain region of Nepal each year through Pheriche and Manang medical posts. Annapurna and Everest region are most popular destinations for trekkers and mountaineers.
