Mt. Kailash Yatra
Jul 2019
Visited Mt. Kailash in July 2019 through Monterosa Treks. It was a wonderful trip. We were well taken care of by the staff. All of them were extremely helpful. Just to mention a few names Ranjan, Prakash. Food was very delicious, hot and always served with broad smiles in spite of the hard work that went behind getting the food ready in time for the guests. Big thank you to all team members of Monterosa Treks.

A Journey of Lifetie!
Sep 2019
i went for this holy pilgrimage with my mother in September. It had been sitting in my bucket list for long and finally my dream came true when i just decided to go for it this year! We were lucky to have travelled during the right period as the weather was just perfect and we witnessed the best view of Holy Mount Kailash & Mansarovar Lake without weather playing foul.

It was indeed a divine experience to have taken the first day parikrama/trek with success, given the degree/level of toughness of the complete trip due to extreme weather conditions. There is nothing quite like the beautiful sight of the holy mountain. one can feel the divine blessings of lord Shiva in the environment.

It is a group travel only, managed by specialized tour operators who are registered with Chinese/Tibetian authority to procure the permits and Visas. The total travel time is 8-9 days and the trek of Kailash is a 3 days long for 54 Kms. Its a break journey due to extremity of the trek. One can only do this trek if they are physically fit to bear the weather conditions of low oxygen and air pressure.

I am so tempted to do this yatra once more if health and luck permits and this time, I would like to do the "Charan Sparsh" which means touch the feet of Mount Kailash. This post completion of first day of parikrama/trek of 14 kms.

I ask for more of this beautiful experience!

Word of caution: Unfortunately we went with SOTC given their longstanding existence and reputation in the Travel industry, but had a very harrowing experience. Would recommend not to go with SOTC for this trip as it is a total nightmare dealing with them post trip as well as my grievances are still pending with them despite escalating it to the top management.

Challenging and amazing
Jun 2019
A life time journey, please follow instructions from the tour guide strictly, was snowing when we went in June. Was able to only go upto dirapuk as the terrain was challenging and they did not give permission, no one wanted to take the risk barring 4 people from the group who completed it fully

challenging and most beautiful experience ever
Jul 2019
Fantastic experience. All was very well organised and the tour was absolutely beautiful with breathtaking activities (at the altitude, this has also to be taken at its first sense!!!). Our guide Passang was a great person. He was interesting, authentic, had a deep knowledge in the culture and religions, had humour, was challenging us and encouraging everyone in our very international group. Our son (11) was the youngest of the group and the yougnest Passang ever had for the trek around the Kailash mountain (highest point at 5'600m), and Passang was a reference person for him. I can only highly recommend this tour with Tibet Vista. I would like also to mention the very professional preparation work of Christine as we book directly online and per mail. She always responded us very quickly and gave us all the information we needed, inlcuding of course the organisation of the special permit which is necessary for Tibet.
