KATHMANDU, Aug 19: The trekking route to the religious destination Gosainkunda is being reconstructed. The reconstruction has been started as a major festival starts at Gosainkunda on the occasion of Janai Purnima.

The Gosainkunda Area Development Committee informed that the pathway to Gosainkunda had become muddy and difficult due to heavy rainfall and was being reconstructed by Nepal Army soldiers from the Kalijung Battalion engaged in the security of Langtang National Park. A team of 55 soldiers under the leadership of Ganpati Sheetal Baniya from the Kalijung Battalion reconstructed the pathway from Mini-Gosainkunda to Gosainkunda. A team under the command of Ashok Budha Kampa was engaged in the reconstruction before this on Friday and Saturday. The Kalijung Battalion also informed that various caution signs have been put up on the route as the pathway faces the danger of landslide during rainy season.
