Kathmandu Indian embassy reaches out to stranded Kailash Mansarovar pilgrims
The Indian embassy located in Kathmandu have successfully approached the Kailash Manasarovar pilgrims, who were reported stranded in the high altitude region located near the Nepal-China border due to unfriendly weather conditions. As per a latest report, those located have been offered medical aides and other necessary facilities. Unfortunately, a middle aged woman, hailing from the Southern state of Kerala, has lost her life due to some kind of high altitude related disease.
According to the report, the pilgrims cannot move from the place where they are at present camping until the climate shows friendliness. At this moment, all those found stranded are living in some locally arranged accommodation facilities. The authorities have asserted that all kinds of support have been extended to the stranded pilgrims.
At this moment, it is not clear when the authorities can evacuate the stranded pilgrims from the dangerous high altitude region.
Fortunately, the health condition of all those left stranded at present in the region are satisfactory.
Actually, the Kailash Mansarovar pilgrimage is one of the most dangerous pilgrimages exist in the world. Yet, yearly, tens of thousands of people, mostly those belonging to Hindu religious faith, embark into this risky journey in search of ‘Moksha’.
