“Holy Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

This is truly adventure trip and deeply concern with religious faith. One can enjoy this tour with spirit of such feelings and will be one of lifetime experience trip. I suggest those who wish to plan for holidays or vacation trip are not fit for this tour and will be disappointed because you will not getting any facilities of luxury services.

“Oh yes, this IS Heaven...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Can I even begin to describe Heaven? Nope... Just imagine a huge Lake, its waters like pearls, crystal blue in colour, surrounded by majestic hills and mountains, peace, tranquility, the stars hung so low in the sky that you can almost pluck them out!!!

Heaven folks...The closest you will get in your physical body...

“Heaven anyone...???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

No review can do justice to the beauty and magnificence of Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar. It's Majestic, Enthralling, Spectacularly beautiful, peaceful, serene...

It's also an amazing pilgrimage/ trek to one of the coldest and most hostile regions in the Himalayan mountains. Of course, now there are lots of facilities for travellers, with food and guest houses readily available enroute.

Being physically fit is highly recommended as the air can get very thin at some places.. It's quite impossible to write a full review for this destination - but it is highly recommended for all lovers of nature and adventure.

And of course, for Lord Shiva's devotees. Mt. Kailash is of course the Lord's Heavenly abode, and Lake Mansarovar, created by the Lord Brahma, is the celestial Lake created by His thought, a bath in which will wash your sins of a hundred births!!

Message me anyone for any information or tips you may require!

“Exceptionally beautiful and wonderful treat for human eyes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

This year, August 2011, we fulfilled our long cherished dream of visiting Kailash Manasarovar. Manasarovar lake is Asia's most sacred freshwater lake.
In Sanskrit,it is called Manas (mind) and lake (sarovar). The legend says that the lake was first created in mind of LORD BRAHMA and then manifested on EARTH. According to Hindu mythology, someone who takes bath & drinks its water, is free from all sins & he can go to ABODE of SHIVA.
It is highest lake in Tibet, Autonomous Region of China, at 14948 feet height, app 300 feet deep, circumference 88 km, surface area 320 square km.
It attracts a lot of people from India, Nepal, Tibet and of different religions such as Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Bonpo.
It is exceptionally beautiful and beyond words to explain it really. The color of the water changes from clear blue around shores to deep emerald green in center. It is magical in moonlight.
Sitting & gazing it is a wonderful treat for the human eyes. One just tends to forget all his sorrows and definitely feels presence of almighty.

All in all, one of the most wonderful experience of my life.
