The road was being upgraded at various places from Beni to Letang of Mustang by stopping the movement of vehicles for six hours daily since January 25. Chief of the Beni-Jomsom-Korla Road Project Jagat Prajapati informed that the traffic on the road will not be closed till April 25.

 "Due to the increasing pressure of pilgrims and tourists in Mustang, we have removed the schedule till April 25 at the request of the local administration," he said.

Due to the tourist season, the number of tourists from home and abroad visiting Mustang has also increased. Around 3,000 pilgrims and tourists have been entering Mustang daily for the past few days.
