Almost after 5 months the government decided to run some international flights and started to lose the lockdown restriction. Till then the cases were very few compared with most of the South Asian countries.

In September 2021  the prince of Bahrain and his group visited Nepal to climb Mt. Lobuche 6145m and Mt. Manaslu as a trial climb before attempting the world’s Highest Mountain Mt. Everest 8848.86m. Their safe and successful climb flourished positive news all over the world as the Himalayas are safe.

As the 2021 Spring started Trekking and Mountain Expedition groups started to flourish. The lockdown was almost over and the livelihood of people was coming back to normal after being crashed by the pandemic.
