stranded Manasarovar pilgrims
Thirty-three stranded Indian pilgrims returning from Kailash and Manasarovar were
evacuated to Nepalganj on Wednesday. With this, forty-seven pilgrims have been
evacuated. Meanwhile, Indian doctors are providing medical care to the pilgrims.
Local flights have also resumed their services from Kathmandu to Simikote on Nepal-China
border so that pilgrims resume their journey. Indian Embassy in Kathmandu is in
constant touch with authorities in Nepal to provide safety to pilgrims. Located
18 miles south east of Mount Kailash, the circular lake Manasarovar or Tso Rinpoche
is a part of the 64-mile circuit undertaken by pilgrims. Bathing in the lake,
or even sprinkling water from it on one's head is said to provide enormous spiritual
benefit. Hindus making the trip are told to immerse themselves completely if they
want to enter the celestial kingdom.
