Devotees to be able to visit Kailash Parbat from India from September

Kailash Parbat, the revered abode of Lord Shiva, will soon be accessible to devotees from Indian territory through a newly constructed route. The Indian Government’s persistent efforts to create an alternative path have brought hope to pilgrims.

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has started work on a road that will allow devotees to visit Mount Kailash from India from September this year. The road, which is about 6.5 kilometers long, will connect KMVN Huts in Nabhidhang in Pithoragarh district to Lipulekh pass on the India-China border.

Currently, there are two routes for the Kalash Yatra: Lipulekh Pass in Uttarakhand and Nathu La in Sikkim, taking 23-25 days to complete. The journey through Lipulekh involves a challenging 90-kilometer trek at high altitudes of up to 19,500 feet, subjecting pilgrims to inhospitable conditions and rugged terrain. However, a new route through Uttarakhand’s Pithoragarh district is set to significantly improve the pilgrimage experience, reducing travel time to just one week.

Upon the road’s completion, a special attraction for visitors, ‘Kailash View Point,’ will be established along the route. The development of this viewpoint ensures pilgrims have the opportunity to experience breathtaking vistas of Mount Kailash and its surroundings. The Kailash-Mansarovar yatra through the Lipulekh Pass was postponed due to the COVID pandemic, but this new road will provide an alternative route for devotees to access Mount Kailash.

The news has been welcomed by devotees, who have been waiting for the opportunity to visit Mount Kailash from India. Mount Kailash is a sacred mountain in the Himalayas and is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva. It is a popular pilgrimage destination for Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains. The opening of the new road will make it easier for devotees from India to visit Mount Kailash and will help to boost tourism in the region.
