Synopsis: This move comes as the government presses for early completion. Lt Gen Harpal Singh, the chief engineer of the Indian Army, mentioned that numerous stretches have been finished.
According to reports, the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra’s strategic road to Lipulekh near the China border will be finished by 2024. The Border Roads Organisation is anticipated to speed up the construction and finish it quicker than anticipated. Kailash is one of the best places to visit in India. Kailash Mansarovar is in the territory under the control of China.
This move comes as the government presses for early completion. Lt Gen Harpal Singh, the chief engineer of the Indian Army, mentioned that numerous stretches have been finished. The work on the road is expected to be finished by 2024, which will allow pilgrims to continue using their vehicles up until the very end of India, he added.
He continued by saying that once the project is finished, it will make traveling for pilgrims much easier. If rumors are accurate, the pilgrims’ journey would take less than a week.
The government has been supporting the initiative in every way, the Lt Gen stated, and heavy-lift helicopters have been deployed to deliver equipment to more remote locations.
In order to shorten the travel time to the destination, he said that there is also a plan to construct tunnels on some of the routes. On the new route, pilgrims will ascend to Pithorgath and then proceed to Lipulekh Pass, which is located on the Chinese border.
It should be noted that there is a second route for the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra, which passes through Nathu La in Sikkim and involves approximately 1500 km of driving through territory under the control of China. It is undoubtedly one of the most popular places to visit in India.
