Indo-Nepal Cultural Tourism: Nepali Pilgrims Embark on Pilgrimage to India

In a move promoting Nepal-India cultural and tourism ties, a group of 36 Nepalis has embarked on a pilgrimage from Kathmandu to different parts of India.

The two-week-long journey that began on December 14, 2017, involving elderly Nepali citizens, is a joint initiative of the Nepal Bharat Friendship Society and the Indian Mission in Nepal.

As part of the journey, the pilgrims will travel around India and Nepal.

“India has age old relations with Nepal which includes the religious, social and the cultural relations. The culture and the other things are similar between the two sides. Many things in Nepal such as Shraddha (commemorating the deceased ones) do not get completed without the pilgrimage tour in India,” says Prem Lashkery, President of Nepal Bharat Friendship Society.

Entering India through Nepal’s Birgunj, the pilgrims will cover Indian places such as Harihar Kshetra, PunPun, Gaya, Bodh Gaya, Kashi Bishow Nath, Bindhabasini, Chitra Kut, Allahabad, Prayag, Ayodhya Ram Janma Bhumi, Gorakh Nath, Tribeni and Devghat before returning to Kathmandu.

Meanwhile, Bidur KC , a pilgrim traveling with the team, feels that this tour will strengthen the Nepal-India relationship.

“This also shows that the relation between the countries is not confined to political level only, but very good relation exists in the religious sector too,” he added.
