The government is set to construct a tunnel road to ease existing problem of traffic jam at the Nagdhunga-Thankot road section. The Department of Roads has completed the survey study for the construction of the 2.5 kilometer road connecting Sisnekhola to Basnetchhap in Nagdhunga. Deputy Director General and Chief of the Nagdhunga Tunnel Road Project, Sanjay Kumar Shrestha informed taht the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has agreed to provide the loan at one per cent interest rate for the next 40 years for the project. According to him, the Department estimates the construction cost at Rs 15 billion. The Project is expected to begin to commence the construction work within the next one and half years. Thousands of vehicles to and from Kathmandu are compelled to queue for hours to cross the road due traffic pressure in the narrow road at Nagdhunga-Thankot route. 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.
