Actually Kalimpong was always part of the schedule, the question is whether he can go to the Shar Min Nub monastery near Kathmandu afterwards for the cremation, as was planned. From what I heard, there's lots of negotiating going on about that.
Would be wonderful if he could come to Nepal as planned. The support for him is incredible there. Literally tens of thousands of people attended his empowerments in the past, and close to a hundred thousand might possibly attend a cremation ceremony.
