The Parbat Baglung section of the Parbat-Mid-Hills Highway has been blocked for six days.

The road between Kushma Municipality-2 Armadi and Nayapul in the district has been blocked by a landslide on July 8.

Lama Construction, which has been working on the mountain section under the Mid-Hills since the day after the landslide, has not been able to open the road even after trying to break the stone by hitting the breaker.

After the dozers failed to clear the road and the road had to be operated using explosives, a meeting held at the District Administration Office handed over the road to the Nepal Army.

Kewaljung Gulm, located in the mountain of the army, has been removing explosives since Monday by bringing explosives from Myagdi. 

Though it was detonated twice on Monday afternoon and evening, the stone could not be removed as it has not exploded yet.

According to Traffic Police Chief Krishna Khadka, the giant stones could be blown up by explosives and hit by a dozer.

According to him, efforts will be made throughout the day even today. It is raining heavily in the area now. Khadka said that the rain has made the problem worse. 

Police estimate that it may be brought into one-sided operation by this evening after the explosion is stopped.

Hundreds of vehicles ply on the Kushma-Baglung road under the Pokhara-Baglung daily. They are imprisoned.
