Kathmandu: Melamchi Ghyang village-a famous tourist destination especially for Buddhist people- situated at the uppermost part of Helambu Rural Municipality in Sindhupalchok district, has finally been connected to motorable roadways.
This event has brought new hope among the villagers of Ghyang. The village has a few hundred Hyolmo people. The tourist village is as far as 80 to 90 km from the Kathmandu Valley. Previously the village was completely secluded and estranged from the rest of the world for lack of motorable road access and other facilities.
This village is one of the villages in Nepal that has not been infected by the deadly Covid-19 pandemic so far by the time of completion of the road to connect to this remote village of Hyomos.
The remote village of Ghyang was connected to the rest of the world as soon as the bridge that connects this villages was completed by Helambu Rural Municipality at the cost of Rs 5.7 million recently.
The construction of the motor-able bridge will not only promote tourism but also provide access to those seeking better education at low cost,” said Nima Gyalzen Sherpa, Chairperson of Helambu Rural Municipality.
