Myagdi: The Tatopani Kunda (natural hospital with hot water) in Myagdi, which was closed on January 21, has been reopened for the public after the government relaxed the Covid-19 preventive restrictions.
The District Covid Management Committee (DCMC) has stated that it has decided to allow the regular opening of the hot water pond by following the public health standards for prevention and control of Covid-19.
The hot water pool management committee has informed that those who have met the health standards and have corona vaccination cards will be allowed to bathe in the pool.
The Chairman of the pool management committee, Birendra Man Shakya, informed that observance of public health safety has been made mandatory as people from different districts of Nepal as well as neighboring India regularly visit the pool.
More than 30,000 patients who do not recover from the pathology and Ayurvedic treatment come to the hospital every year to bathe in the hot water pool.
The hot water comes out from the source at a temperature of 45 to 50 degrees Celsius. Regular bathing in the hot water that comes out of the ground with the smell of salt cures skin diseases, gastric, and other external diseases.
Therefore, patients come here for bathing every year. Patients with health problems such as gastric, heart disease, back pain, skin, swelling, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, etc. are more interested to dip themselves into the pool.
