KASKI: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Jeevan Ram Shrestha, has said measures to continue the paragliding business of Pokhara would be explored to ensure that it continues even after the operation of Pokhara International Airport.

At a news conference organized by Socialist Press Organisation at Pokhara on Wednesday, Minister Shrestha said that initiatives would be taken to continue the paragliding business, which has become the brand of Pokhara. “Tourism entrepreneurs have demanded protection of paragliding.

But there should be no compromise in air safety. We are working to continue the paragliding business without compromising air safety by adopting any measure required,” he said.
