Traditional Route of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, which is closed from 1962 can be restored


Since the UNESCO has agreed to the approval of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra to be included in the list of World Heritage, the journey is likely to start from the traditional route.

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra would pass through Champavat district. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra was closed for two decades after the Indo-China war in 1962. The traditional route of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, which started again in 1981, was changed. Before this, Champavat was the capital of Chandra Rajas, which used to be an important part of the journey. In the year 2002, the Ministry of External Affairs had fixed the route of return of the trip from the Champavat district, but the route of return was also removed after one year. For this, the cadets were cited by the organizers to spoil the road.

The journey has a deep connection with Champavat
According to historian Devendra Auli, Kailash Mansarovar Yatra has a deep connection with the Champavat. Travelers came to Champavat via Tanakpur and walked out of the temple at Baleshwar and Maneshwar Mahadev temple for the next stay. After the resumption of the visit in 1981, it was entrusted to the Kumaon Mandal Vikas Corporation. Along with this, the travel route was changed from Champavat district to Almora district.

Case dependent on UNESCO
At present, the approval of UNESCO’s Kailash Mansarovar Yatra to be a World Heritage Site has been approved, but this proposal will take more than a year to be adopted. UNESCO has not finalized the traditional travel route of Kailash Mansarovar in the initial proposal. According to Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s State Executive Chairman Chandrakishor Bohra, if the journey is not according to the Manaskhanda Route, it is against the religious belief. Read more posts…
