Mobility up in Rasuagadhi border point for Mansarobar tour

RASUWA, MAY 20: The season for travel to Mansarovar, a popular religious destination in China, has begun. The Rasuwagadhi border point has seen increasing mobility of people traveling to Kailash Mountain (Parbat) and Mansarovar, considered to be the abode of Lord Mahadev (Shiva), via Trishuli, Dhunche, and Syafrubesi.

Chief of the Immigration Office, Rasuwagadhi, Murari Niraula, said that on average, 40 passengers are traveling to Mansarovar via the border point every day. Mansarovar is 950 kilometres away from this border point. Chief Niraula noted that although both Rasuwagadhi and Hilsa (Humla) border points are used to travel to Mansarovar from Nepal, Rasuwagadhi has witnessed a rising number of visitors to these religious sites as it is geographically closer to Kathmandu.

According to him, around 50 Chinese nationals have been entering Nepal through the border points daily.
