Nepali Army builds modern public toilet in Everest region


By Sachin Pokhrel,Itahari, Feb. 24: A modern public toilet has been constructed in the Khumbu region for the convenience of national and international tourists, mountaineers and locals who reach the area to climb Mt. Everest or trek to the Everest Base Camp.

Considering the problems faced by tourists and locals due to the lack of toilets on the foot trails heading to Mount Everest, the Nepali Army has constructed a modern toilet in Fungi Thenga area located in Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality-4 in Solukhumbu district.

Chief of the Eastern Division Headquarters and Major General Dr. Ash Bahadur Tamang said that a four-room modern toilet has been constructed in three months under the army's welfare project named 'Quick Impact Project'. The toilet was built by a team of soldiers deployed at Ranashur Company with the budget allocated from the Army Welfare Fund. 

Prachanda Bikram Bharati, Company Commander and Major of Ranashur Company, said that the newly constructed modern toilet was recently inaugurated at a function and handed over to Khumbila Buffer Zone Consumers' Committee which is under the Everest National Park.

On the occasion, Major General Tamang emphasised the importance of the public toilet, its cleanliness and efficient operation, and expressed his belief that the new public toilet would provide facilities to national and international tourists and maintain public-military relations.
