The Beni Jomsom road, which was blocked by a landslide, has been operational since Monday evening after four days.

The 76-kilometer stretch of road connecting the Trans-Himalayan district of Mustang with the national highway had been blocked since last Friday due to landslides.

According to the District Police Office, Myagdi, it has been operational since Monday evening after the landslide removed the obstruction of the road.

The road had been blocked since Friday morning due to landslides in Rupse Chhahra, Kavre Bhir, and other places under Annapurna Gaonpalika-3. 

Passengers traveling to Mustang and North Myagdi villages were in trouble when the road was blocked. 

Passengers and vehicles stranded on the road are heading towards their destination.

Information Officer at the District Police Office, Inspector Birendra Raj Gurung said that the risk of landslides remained even after the closed roads were reopened.

The landslides have not stopped in some places as the rains are causing mudslides with stones and soil. 

Police Inspector Gurung said that passengers and vehicles were requested to travel with necessary safety precautions.
