20 dead in Trishuli River bus accident

Posted by Anup Baral August 25, 2016 :
The daily closure of Narayanghat-Mugling road section for road widening drive has been lifted from Wednesday. The road section was closed from 11 am to 3 pm every day for upgradation. The Narayanghat-Mugling highway experiences the heaviest traffic load in the country, accounting for 90 percent of Nepal’s total international trade traffic. More than 20,000 vehicles ply the highway every day.

At least 19 passengers died on the spot and other 12 were injured when a Pokhara-bound night bus from Gaur of Rautahat fell into the Trishuli River along the Narayangarh-Mugling road section at 4.45 this morning. According to Chitwan District Police Office Chief SP Basanta Bahadur Kunwar, some six of the injured were already rescued and efforts are on to rescue other six in the incident site. The bus (Ga 1 Kha 3709) had plunged into the Trishuli River nearby Mugling. RSS







Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
