Kailash-Manasarovar Yatra (KM Yatra)

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force is one of the important agencies of the Government of India involved in the successful conduct of the Annual Kailash Mansarovar Yatra since 1982, along with the Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Home Affairs, the Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam and the Government of Uttarakhand.

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force provides important security, medical and communication cover to the yatries from village Gunji to the Lipulekh pass and back to Gunji. Besides, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force also provides effective Disaster Management cover to the yatries once they enter the Vyas Valley of Kumaon region. Since 2015, the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is also being conducted from Nathula route and ITBP is providing similar assistance for pilgrims in this route also.

A detailed medical check-up of the yatries is conducted by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force to ensure the yatries are medically fit to undertake the rigours of the journey through mountainous terrain. A compulsory medical test is undertaken at the ITBP hospital in New Delhi and another medical test is done at Gunji . Those found unfit at Gunji are sent back. Thereafter, the Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam takes over the conduct of the yatra in coordination with the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force.
