GORKHA: The Manaslu Conservation Area Project (MCAP) has exceeded the mark of Rs 25 million in revenue collection during the nine months of the current fiscal year 2080/81 BS.

From July 17, 2023, to April 12, 2024, the office garnered this sum primarily through entry fees paid by tourists visiting the region.

Over this period, a total of 8,302 foreign tourists, excluding SAARC citizens, explored the area, contributing Rs 24.9 million to the revenue pool, stated MCAP Chief Santosh Sherchan.
