I am also an Indian and I am walking the camino this September. OM shanti and buen caminoWelcome to the forum Yogi, yes, anyone can do the Camino. I have met Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish and agnostic pilgrims on the Camino.
I hope this answers your question.
I know. But I just couldn't imagine a reason why a person would ask if a given nationality is OK in the Camino. So I assumed (maybe wrongly) that it was about religion (it is a question that comes frequently when I talk about going to the Camino, because in my country pilgrimage is a religious and collective activity, organized by parishes or pious brotherhoods). I usually explain that the Camino is a UNESCO's World Heritage route, open to all nationalities, cultures and beliefs.Felipe,
There are people many faiths in India including Roman Catholics.
Just FYI, BTW, and for what it is worth... My namesake, St. Thomas the Apostle, traveled East from Jerusalem to spread the Christian gospel along the way and eventually in western India. He was martyred and, I believe interred in Goa on the West coast of India. Goa was also the center or the Portuguese trading and missionary settlements along India's west coast for quite some time, but well and long after St. Thomas' time there.I am also an Indian and I am walking the camino this September.

I am an Indian woman doing my third Camino. This time I have started from Le Puy. Am about 500 km into my walk and hoping to make St Jean-Pied-de-Port in 10 days or so. I am very keen to find other Indians who may have done the Camino, and what they saw/felt. If you are interested, please see my blog and respond. I am really keen to find others who like me are fascinated by the cultural experience of Camino, which is so unusual from my Indian perspective. My blog site isCan An Indian do the Way of St. James?? Please advice
