IAF evacuates all Kailash Mansarovar pilgrims stranded in Uttarakhand’s Gunji

MANSAROVAR
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said all the stranded pilgrims of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in Uttarakhand’s Gunji have been evacuated and brought to Pithoragarh by Indian Air Force helicopters.

In a tweet, Mrs Swaraj said that the normal movement of Yatris has again started.

Yesterday, Mrs Swaraj had informed that 115 pilgrims were stranded at Gunji due to inclement weather. They were looked after by ITBP and Kumaon Vikas Mandal.

Earlier this month, hundreds of Indian pilgrims were stranded in Nepal’s mountainous region while returning from the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. They were airlifted to safety after a massive evacuation drive.
