Thini, June 20: Construction of a road stretching from Thini of Gharpajhong rural municipality in Mustang to the Tilicho Lake has begun here. The lake is located at the highest altitude- 4,919 meter.
Infrastructure development office in Myagdi began the opening of track from Thini village of Gharpajhong rural municipality to Tilicho Lake. Earlier, 2-km long road from Thini to Tangdung was built.
Rs 5 million has been allocated for the construction of the road.
