Lamjung: The Besisahar-Chame road section has been blocked yet again on Saturday due to landslides triggered by rainfall.

The road had come into operation since Friday afternoon but was blocked again this morning due to a landslide at Kharkhare Bhir in Besisahar Municipality-6, police said.

As a result, passengers have been stranded since the morning, said Inspector and Information Officer at the District Police Office, Lamjung Jagdish Regmi.

It has become a regular affair, as landslides occur even with light rainfall. The landslide has also blocked the road near Belauti Bisna of the same ward.

The Dumre-Besisahar-Chame Road Project Office Lamjung has started clearing the landslide debris. But it is uncertain how long it will take, police said. The Besisahar-Chame Road is the only road connecting Lamjung and Manang districts.
