MANANG, March 5: An avalanche occurred at Dhukurpokhari of Ngisyang Rural Municipality in the district, causing inconvenience to people's movement.

The connectivity to upper and lower Manang has been difficult with the avalanche.

Chief District Officer Subash Kumar Lamichhane said that although the avalanche had not blocked roads, it was difficult for people to trek in the upper belt. The upper belt of the district had witnessed huge snowfall on Sunday night. 

"The arrival of tourists has begun here, but the avalanche has increased risks," said Dhak Bahadur Bhujel, district chief of Annapurna Conservation Area Project. Some 50 to 60 tourists visit the area daily. 

He further said that the tourists were made aware of the risks caused by the avalanche.
