Kailash Mansarower Yatra 2011 | Route Changed


The route for Kailash Mansarower Yatra 2011 has been altered keeping in mind the safety measures for the pilgrims. Landslides caused major destruction in various parts of the Kumaon region last year and this step will ensure better safety for the pilgrims visiting the holy Mansarower Lake. The Kailash Mansarower Yatra will begin on June 1, 2011 from New Delhi. The change in route would extend the yatra (tour) by one day.

Keeping in view the continuous landslides on the route between Tawaghat to Mangti, the Government of India has changed the route of the Kailash Mansarowar Yatra for 2011. This will mean extension of the yatra by one day.

The meeting in this regard was taken by the Joint Secretary South Asia (China), Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, yesterday in New Delhi and was attended by representatives of the Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam, ITBP and Pitthoragarh district administration.

According to Depti Singh, General Manager (Tourism), KMVN, the yatra next year will begin on June 1 from New Delhi.The batches will be diverted towards Pangu instead of Mangti as was the practice till last year. Sirkha will be first camp enabling the pilgrims to view Narayan Ashram at Sirkha.

“After Sirkha, Gala will be the second camp, Bundi third and after that, a two-days stay at Gunji. From there, the pilgrim batches will directly go to Nabhidang dropping the Kalapani camp which till now, happened to be the fourth camp,” said Depti Singh after returning from the meeting. According to Deepti Singh, the yatra batches will stop at Kalapani camp during their return journey from Tibet. After crossing the Lipulekh pass, they will reach Kalapani and after crossing Bundi and Gala camp during their two-day stay, they will reach Sirkha instead of Mangti. From Sirkha, they will reach Pangu from where they will travel to Dharchula base camp by buses.
