Kailash Mansarovar Yatra: There is a great news for the devotees of Shiva traveling to Kailash Mansarovar. Now devotees will be able to visit Mount Kailash from Indian territory from September this year. The road being prepared in Uttarakhand’s Lipulekh to go to Mount Kailash called Shivdham will start soon. According to the new agency PTI, this route is expected to be opened after September.
Officials said that the Border Road Organization (BRO) has started the work of cutting the road from KMVN Huts in Nabhidhang of Pithoragarh district to Lipulekh Pass on the India-China border, which will be completed by September.

6 and a half kms. work on long road
Vimal Goswami, Chief Engineer of BRO’s Diamond Project, said, “We have started the work of cutting about 6.5 km long road from KMVN Huts to Lipulekh Pass in Nabhidhang.” After the completion of the road, ‘Kailash View Point’ will be ready on the side of the road. Hirak Project has been given the responsibility of developing ‘Kailash View Point’ by the Government of India. The Chief Engineer of BRO said that a lot of road cutting work has been done and if the weather is favourable, it will be completed by September.
‘Kailash View Point’ will be ready
The Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra via Lipulekh Pass, which was suspended due to the Corona pandemic, has not resumed. Such a long stall has contributed to the efforts of the Government of India in creating an alternative route for devotees to reach Mount Kailash. After the completion of the road, ‘Kailash View Point’ will be ready on the side of the road.
Local people found the way
In fact, Mount Kailash in Tibet can be easily seen from a 2 kilometer high hill in Nabhidhang, located in Pithoragarh district. Although no one was aware of this, but when the local people reached the top of the hill of Old Lipupas, the holy Mount Kailash appeared very close and divine from there. However, to reach Old Lilupas one has to trek 2 kms uphill which is not easy, but making a way to reach here is accessible. That’s why a way is being made to make the journey easier.
At present there are 2 routes available for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. One via Sikkim and the other via Kathmandu. The Sikkim route involves a flight to Bagdogra (1,115 km from Delhi) followed by a 1,665 km road journey and a 43 km circumambulation on foot. In this, out of 1,665 km, only 175 km travel in India. The second route is via Kathmandu.
