Nanda Raj Jaat Yatra not to be postponed

The famed Nanda Devi Jaat Yatra, held after every 12 years in Uttarakhand, will not be postponed in wake of the recent tragedy but district authorities have suggested keeping it at a local level this time saying they are not in a position to handle big crowds. 

The Nanda Raj Jaat, known as the Kumbh of Uttarakhand, is slated to be held from August 29 to September 16. The 280 km and 19-day trek starts from Nauti village and reaches Homkund through Bedini Bugyal, Roopkund and the very difficult Gali pass.
