Visited Kailash on the 11th August 2018 with a group of 78 ppl. (Isha Sacred Walks). The Kailash darshan was truly mesmerising. The North face of Kailash was truly divine and I could not keep my eyes away for the first few hours.

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
Choosing tour operators: Many online travel portals involving to book pilgrimage trip to Lake Mansarovar and Mt. Kailash. But, they are not aware of the situations, climate, geography and obstacles may arise during the period pilgrims travelling to the destinations. Some of Agencies from India & abroad are not providing the right information to their customers at the time of booking. They involve in competitions markets to generate the booking without proper information to the pilgrims. They just give low price to book more numbers of pilgrims from the market. Some of agencies in Nepal also play the game on life of pilgrims. Unhealthy tour cost competition by the tour operator finally against the ethic of pilgrimage. The value of pilgrimage will be meaningful while the amounts of all portions fully paid by operator/ organizer. When you completed your pilgrimage without any problem and the patron that involve in operations (Sherpa staffs, ffs, airlines, food supplier, hotels, transportations etc.) does not get paid, your mission is complete but your Pilgrimage is incomplete. Among the agencies only few (20%) agencies give the right information's, paid their patrons, will charge higher than the booking agencies that offer a lower price. In the previous year, 29 pilgrims lost their lives cause poor service provided by operator, due to unhealthy price competitions in the markets. Few groups are cheated by Indian and Nepalese Kailash tour booking agencies. Please choose right agencies rather than the who are offering lower cost for hassle free services. Thanking you for your valuable time to read our views.

i am 100 % agree with this , do not go for cheap tour operator. as kailash yatra is not normal yatra, it is very tuff & one can do once in life time. choose proper & best tour operator for trip.
