Technology To Track Trekkers in Annapurna Conservation Area Project

Trekking Nepal

Thousands of tourists travel across the remote hills and mountains of Nepal to live through the scenic views and explore what the rural hill communities have to offer every year and whilst most of them return back with irreplaceable memories, some go missing… Fortunately, there is a new technology that aims to help track trekkers from going off the radar and for any emergency attention required. The tourist tracking system technology which has been developed by Magsaysay Award winner Mahabir Pun’s organisation E-Networking and Research and Development in cooperation with a Japanese team has already been introduced in the Annapurna Conservation Area Project in early January 2014.

Trekkers are able to collect the device from the ACAP office by depositing a small sum. The new technology is to be tested in the ACAP region for six months before making its way to other parts of the country.

Hope this works out for the best!
