25th Edition of Sindhu Darshan Yatra will be a symbolic and limited event

Ladakh Buddhist Association President Thupstan Chewang said, 25th Edition of Sindhu Darshan Yatra will be a symbolic and limited event. In a press conference he said, respecting the Ladakh public apprehensions, LBA’s appeal to Delhi based Sindhu Darshan Yatra Samiti was honored and only 800 yatris are attending Sindhu Darshan this year.

According to assurance given by the Yatra Samiti to the LBA, vaccinated yatris will carry RTPCR Negative report and follow local SoPs during their yatra. Mr. Chewang said, yatris will be coming to Leh in batches in August month.

He said, the very intention of beginning the Sindhu Yatra, 25 years ago, was to join Ladakh with mainstream, attract domestic tourists and respect the emotional connect of Sindhi’s with Sindhu River.

Mr. Chewang appealed to the UT Administration to strictly implement SoPs and control tourists roaming around Leh flouting all DDMA norms and posing a threat to Ladakh society.
