COVID-19: Sikkim not to host Mansarovar Yatra this year

In wake of the coronavirus outbreak, Sikkim Tourism Minister BS Panth has said that the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra and border trade between India and China through the Nathula pass will not take place this year. The border trade through Nathula Pass was scheduled to begin in May while the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through the route was slated to commence in June. The Ministry of External Affairs organises the yatra from June-September each year through two different routes -- Lipulekh Pass (Uttarakhand) and Nathu La Pass (Sikkim). Kailash Mansarovar is in Tibet.
