“The condition is all well now. Most of the pilgrims stranded there were evacuated on Tuesday,” Pranav Ganesh, First Secretary of Indian Mission to Nepal.

It need be recalled that only recently, the Indians on Kailash Mansarovar pilgrimage got stuck in Nepal’s high altitude because of bad weather conditions.

Nepal is a popular destination for Indian pilgrims to visit Mansarovar due to the distance and comfort factors involved.
