Defence Ministe Mr. Singh inaugurated the link through video conference and

also flagged off the convoy of vehicles from Pithoragarh to Gunji. On this

occasion, he said that the Central Government is working with a special approach

for the development of remote areas. With the completion of this important link,

the decades-old dream of devotees and locals has been fulfilled. He expressed

confidence that the opening of this roadway will promote local trade and

economic activities in the area. He said that before the construction of this link

route, the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra used to take two to three weeks, but now it

will be completed in a week. The height of this road of eighty kilometers is from

6000 to 17 thousand 60 feet at different places. Devotees traveling on the Kailash

Yatra through Lipulekh route had to travel 90 kilometers with great difficulties on

the high mountains. Passengers on their way to Sikkim and Nepal were required

to travel 80 per cent on Chinese roads and only 20 per cent on Indian roads, but

now this ratio has changed and the opening of the Ghatiyabagad-Lipulek road

makes pilgrims 84 per cent travel on Indian roads and only 16 percent will travel

on the road to China.
