On 8th July 2015, a team of National Association of Tourism ( NEAT ) evaluated the area from Syabrubesy to Kyanjin Gumba . The team had three representatives of NEAT Nepal, 11 local of Langtang and other supportive members.

According to the team, more than 90 percent of the hotels, lodges and tea houses in the region were damaged or completely destryed.

Ashok Silwal, media coordinator of NEAT-Nepal and a member of the assessment team said, massive reconstruction is needed to rehabilitate Langtang which was completely washed away by avalanche. “We need to first demarcate the trail, widen and level it,” he said, adding that the government should build shelters for the local villagers.

“The good thing is that locals are very much committed to open the trail themselves. The government needs to encourage them by allocating necessary resources,” Neupane, who is also the executive member of NEAT-Nepal said. “They are willing to work day and night to resume trekking from the autumn season.”

Government officials included geologist, CDO ( Chief District Officer ), LDO (Local District Officer ), DSP ( District Head Police ) of Rasuwa district. Final report will be soon published.

Esperamos que, con todas estas iniciativas y peticiones, el gobierno se decida cuanto antes a rehabilitar los caminos para poder recuperar los accesos a los pueblos y hacer más fácil la reconstrucción de Langtang y el retorno del turismo de montaña a la región.
