The press release also mentioned two major recommendations made by the investigation committee: making it compulsory to take the services of registered trekking companies to go on trekking expeditions, and also to hire a trekking guide with a valid license to go trekking in regions above 3000 meters, which have been suggested by TAAN since a long time back. The statement thanked the committee for keeping those demands in priority and expressed belief that those demands would soon be met.
