“The road is scary. It is narrow, muddy, and steep. I was terrified when the bus swayed side to side on the muddy road,” said Arun Kumar of Tamilnadu, India, who was returning after worshipping at Muktinath Temple.
The narrow stretch has been riskier due to rain. According to transport workers, it takes more than seven hours to travel the 76 km road. “Transportation along the Beni-Jomsom section has been difficult and dangerous due to mudslides triggered by rains. We have been operating transportation services running the full risk for the sake of passengers who are facing difficulties. We clear the debris every morning and run vehicles,” said Mohan KC.
