Promoting pilgrim tourism China inaugurated a new land crossing into Tibet on Monday for Indian travellers. The Nathu La pass, connecting the Indian state of Sikkim with Tibet,has been opened to pilgrims. A commendable step to enhance international integration among the two nations, this venture will ensure significant progress in religious tourism. The decision to open the pass was agreed to in a bilateral agreement between India and China in September 2014.
Pilgrims making the arduous trek to the sacred Mount Kailash and the Mansarovar lake in the Tibetan Autonomous Region can now choose to journey through a new route. At Nathu La, the pilgrims will complete their immigration formalities at the border, before crossing into Tibet and completing the rest of the journey under the guidance of Chinese authorities.
The first group of pilgrims entered Tibet via a Himalayan pass in mid-morning for the 12-day trip to Mount Kailash, which will also take in a holy lake.
