INDIA, July 21, 2023 (Native Planet): Devotees will soon have a unique opportunity to visit Mount Kailash, the revered abode of Lord Shiva, from the Indian territory. The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has taken up the task of cutting a road from KMVN Huts in Nabhidhang, Pithoragarh district, to Lipulekh Pass on the India-China border. This new pathway, expected to be completed by September, will enable pilgrims to reach the sacred mountain with ease. Vimal Goswami, Chief Engineer of BRO’s Diamond Project, shared that the road-cutting work, covering approximately 4 miles, is already underway. The anticipated Kailash View Point along the road will offer pilgrims breathtaking vistas of the sacred mountain. Due to the Covid pandemic, the Kailash-Mansarovar yatra through the Lipulekh Pass had been postponed, causing disappointment for many pilgrims.

Mount Kailash holds immense significance for devotees worldwide, revered in Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon religion and Jainism as one of the holiest mountains. The Kailash-Mansarovar yatra represents a profound spiritual journey, attracting pilgrims seeking blessings and enlightenment. The availability of this new pathway is expected to boost pilgrimage activities, catering to the spiritual aspirations of countless devotees. For many, the dream of visiting Mount Kailash is now closer to becoming a reality. This initiative marks a milestone in facilitating religious and spiritual pursuits while fostering greater connectivity between devotees and Mount Kailash. The Indian government’s efforts in providing an alternative route demonstrate its commitment to preserving the cultural and religious heritage of the country while fostering unity and reverence among all devotees.
