Kinner Kailash yatra called off due to bad weather
The annual Kinner Kailash pilgrimage has been called off by the Kinnaur district administration in Himachal Pradesh due to adverse weather conditions and flash flood incidents, an official said today.
Meanwhile, the General Reserve Engineer Force (GREF) personnel were clearing the Ribba National Highway-5 as the road had been closed due to landslides and flash floods yesterday afternoon, officials said.
The road would be restored for normal traffic by this evening, they said.
The 10-day pilgrimage was earlier suspended on July 29 as two pilgrims were washed away and 276 were stranded.
Several hundred pilgrims from different states come to Kinner Kailash to pay their obeisance every year.
