All stranded pilgrims of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in Uttarakhand evacuated

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today 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 with this, normal movement of Yatris has recommenced. 

Yesterday Mrs Swaraj informed as many as 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 in Tibet. They were airlifted to safety after a massive evacuation drive.
