80 km long road to curtail Kailash-Mansarovar pilgrimage time

Fulfilling the decades-old-dreams and aspirations of people of Kailash-Mansarovar pilgrimage, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has inaugurated a road link from Dharchula (Uttarakhand) to Lipulekh (China Border), through video conferencing. 

The pilgrimage to Kailash-Manasarovar has been sacred and revered by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. With the road link the yatra could be completed in one week compared to 2 to 3 weeks it took earlier. 

The road originates from Ghatiabagarh and terminates at Lipulekh Pass, the gateway to Kailash-Mansarovar.  In this 80-Kilometre – road, the altitude rises from 6,000 to 17,060 feet. With the completion of this project, the arduous trek through treacherous high-altitude terrain can now be avoided by the pilgrims of Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra.

At present, the travel to Kailash-Mansarovar takes around two to three weeks through Sikkim or Nepal routes. Lipulekh route had a trek of 90 Km through high altitude terrain and the elderly pilgrims faced lot of difficulties.
