The Kailash Mansarowar yatra has become challenging as local rivulets on way to Gunji and above are in spate following heavy rains in the region.

“The 11th batch of the pilgrims will have to face problems on its way to Tibet as this time rains are heavier than the corresponding period last year," said AT Borkar, an ITBP officials at Mirthi, Didihat.
Borkar said the ITBP was also in contact with the Chinese authorities. “The track route beyond Sirkha has become challenging after it received continuous rains for the past one week. We have deputed more ITBP jawans near swollen rivulets to help the pilgrims cross the way,” said the ITBP officer.
According to base camp sources, the 11 batch returned to the Sirkha camp today while the 12th batch on way to India has reached the Darchin camp in Tibet after completing the yatra.
The 13th batch has reached Thugu in Tibet while the 14th batch has reached the Bundi camp on its way to Tibet. “We are taking care of the pilgrims on their way and also deputed rescue teams at flash flood-sensitive places,” said Borkar.
