Indian yoga guru, Ramdev, has launched a five-day free yoga camp in Kathmandu, Nepal. Thousands of natives have joined the camp organized by the Patanjali Nepal chapter.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Bamdev Gautam, Irrigation Minister Narayan Prakash Saud and dozens of senior government officials also attended the yoga camp.
The organisers have estimated an attendance of 20,000 people for the camp. The Yoga camp is being organised to raise awareness about health through Ayurveda. The camp will also conduct the free health checkup. A team of Ayurvedic practitioners have arrived from India's Haridwar-based Patanjali Yogpeeth for free health checkups.
Ramdev, who is on his fifth visit to Nepal, will also participate in a campaign to clean the Bagmati river. The revered Pashupatinath temple is located on its banks. Yoga became popular among Nepalis after Ramdev aggressively promoted it. He will also travel to other cities of Nepal to promote yoga.
