The season for travel to Mansarovar, a popular pilgrimage site in Tibet, China, has begun. The Rasuwagadhi border point has seen increasing mobility of people traveling to the Mt. Kailash – Mansarovar considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva via Trishuli, Dhunche and Syafrubesi. According to Chief of the Immigration Office, Rasuwagadhi, Murari Niraura on an average 40 passengers are traveling to Mansarovar via the border point every day. 

Mansarovar is 950 kilometers away from this border point. Chief Niraula said although there are Rasuwagadhi and Hilsa (Humla) border points to go to Mansarovar from Nepal, Rasuwagadhi has witnessed a rising number of visitors to religious sites as it is geographically closer to Kathmandu. According to Niraula, daily around 50 Chinese nationals have been entering Nepal through the border point.
