China has confirmed restarting of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through the Nathu La pass
Nathu La is a mountain pass in the Himalayas.
It connects the Indian state of Sikkim with China’s Tibet Autonomous Region.
It is also one of the four officially agreed BPM (Border Personnel Meeting Which include; Chushul in Ladakh, Nathu La in Sikkim, Bum La Pass in Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh, and Lipulekh Pass in Uttarakhand.) points between the Indian Army and People’s Liberation Army of China for regular consultations and interactions between the two armies, which helps in defusing stand-offs.
Kailash Mansarovar Yatra (KMY) is known for its religious importance, cultural significance and arduous nature.
The Yatra is organized by the government of India in close cooperation with the Government of the People’s Republic of China.
State Governments of Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Delhi, and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Kuma on Mandal Vikas Nigam Limited (KMVN) are other major Indian partners of the Ministry in organizing the Yatra.
