Kathmandu, Jul 31 (efe-epa)- The government of Nepal on Friday announced the reopening of Mt. Everest and 414 other peaks in the Himalayan mountain range for mountaineers, after a four-month closure due to the Covid-19 crisis.

All trekking and mountaineering activities were halted in March, along with hotels and restaurants, as a result of which tourism and hospitality sectors suffered huge losses and thousands of people lost their means of livelihood.EFE-EPA
