Karnali tours is a very warm and caring tour company. I have been with Karnali twice once to Kailash and second time to Mount Everest base camp. They have been amazing. Both the times.Hiraji and team took great care while going to Kailash. We didn’t had to worry about anything. Every thing from the smallest possible stuff everything was taken care of. Food, accommodation.travel including porter and guides to Kailash every single thing was taken care of. All the guides Bishnuji, Rajan and Debji all of them were so helpful. Infact one of the person in our team got so sick that they carried her on their back and brought them down from 19,000 feet.. Hiraji not only helped his own team but he took care of other tourist visiting from Kazakhstan which wasn’t part of our team but he helped him when he had altitude sickness.
He has amazing team who just cares for one goal how to make every single person trip successful. This was about Kailash.

My second trip to Mount Everest base camp also he took care of me and my friend who were a team of 2 with one guide Rajan and our porter and also sub guide Debji. Both of them made our trip worth it. Rajanbhai made sure that our oxygen was good and we had no difficulty going up.he took care of us our food medicine and also he made sure we had fruits every day. We saw so many people going back to Lukla due to altitude sickness. We followed their advice as they said at each and every step and without any problem we could finish our journey. All 3 of them went above and beyond and made my trip everlasting one. I would highly recommend Karnali to anyone without giving a second thought.

Special thanks to Hiraji, Vaishaliben and Bhavnaben for giving us such a memorable yatra. It is very pleasant and life time achievement experience visiting Kailash & Mansarovar, and with blessing of almighty we performed our yatra successfully.
The Karnali staff accompanied the tour providing of the best arrangements, services and facilities in remote places. The Staff were very cordial, understanding and had taken very special care of everyone to make the yatra comfortable as much possible. We would recommend your company to everyone and anyone who is looking to go Kailash Mansarovar and other trekking destinations. Thanks once again for wonderful experience.
We pray to god for all the members of the Karnali Team for their Health and Prosperity.

This trip beyond exceeded my expectations! The staff, especially Hiraji & Sarlaben, went above and beyond to ensure our safety and comfort throughout this trip. They were extremely organized and made sure that we had everything we needed to have a successful and enjoyable yatra. We encountered much trouble from the government to receive our Visas but the staff with Karnali Excursions stayed on top of them for days and days. We were updated daily and they wouldn't give up until they had exhausted all options to find out if we could move on with our trip. Thanks to everyone, I have recommended this trip and this company to all my friends and family! Don't miss out, it was an experience of a lifetime!

Our journey began when I was introduced to Sarla Dave by phone. She convinced us that we were ready for this journey. Some of us in my team had doubts, a husband did not have faith that his wife was strong enough to go to Mt. Kailash, an overweight mother did not have courage to start the journey and one with a weak heart. It was Sarla Dave's sweet words of encouragement, her confident mantra, "Have faith in Mahadeva and everything is possible", that we embarked on an amazing Mt. Kailash yatra 2014. We were part of the 75 member yatris. I was told that I will get God's dharshan only with Mataji or Mahadeva's grace. The itinerary was trusted on Hiraji, Sarlaji and the team. There were changes made alone the way to accommodate all yatris, taking into consideration the safety of all.
I am awed how the team feed us in such a remote area, how did they carry our food and the cooking items and manage to serve meals that kept us healthy and focused on our pilgrimage? I still miss the 4am wakeup call with smiley faces and warm herbal tea. I would have hated to have gotten sick at such a high altitude. I remember the last day while we were being rescued due to a devastating landslide. Sarlaji managed to prepare food in a small village house with barely any ingredients and feed all yatris. We were warned not to expect any star accommodations, we had comfortable beds and comfortable guest houses. The importance was the holy places, spiritual surroundings the peaceful and positive environment. Sarla Daves’ kind encouragement and sweet words, you and your Bhagawan is all you need for successful pilgrimage to the most holy places on earth. Hiraji, Sarlaji and the Karnli team were instrumental in giving us the opportunity to realize our god and his grace while on this journey. We were blessed to be in their responsible care during this extremely difficult holy yatra.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, to Hira-Bai and his dedicated team for all their efforts to make this Kailash Yatra a peaceful and joyful experience. They took very good care of the Yatris; and their sincere desire to make the Yatra a pleasant experience for the Yatris was evident in the preparations and everything they did throughout the trip.

The hot yummy food they cooked for us every day was just unbelievable – their hot soup is one of the best. Also the words of wisdom they shared from their experience and familiarity with the land was very helpful to keep us safe and healthy throughout the Yatra.

Without any reservation, I recommend Karnali for your Kailash-Manasrovar Yatra.

Har Har Mahadev!!!

We just returned from a 15 day Kailash Parikrama and Mansarovar Yatra. From the outset, Hira ji and his team and left no stone unturned to get the logistics in place. Because of landslides earlier in the route, there were issues in getting visa/permits etc but Karnali excursions planned everything smoothly. Hira ji is not only a tour guide or agent, he is also a doctor, spiritual guide and counsellor. Several times during the trek, some elderly people fell ill and Hiraji, Vishnu ji and the rest of the staff took good care of the yatris. Every morning, inspite of being an inhospitable terrain, we were all woken up by herbal tea, hot breakfast and food during the day. At then end of the trip, Hira ji ensured all the group had done the parikrama and darshan. I would very strongly recommend Karnali excursions for all Nepal/trekking holidays.

While I have only utilised their services for Mt Kailash Yatra, I am very sure I will use their services for other treks to Nepal.

One of the most life transforming trips of my life was the trip with Karnali to the Kailash. I chose to share this experience as there are many who may be in theory wanting to visit the Kailash but have little information on who to go with in order to make this a true spiritual journey. Kailash is the epicenter of the universe, this trip holds a lot of significance in one’s spiritual elevation and wisdom growth hence it is of paramount importance who designs your trip in the physical world, ofcourse it goes without saying Shiva is the ultimate planner.

Karnali, was an experience and a half! Never have I experienced love and light so unconditionally from any of my trips. I work for Worlds leading Airline having the opportunity to travel quite a bit, but this trip outgrows it all. Its been 20 days since I am back to the Madness of so called life but even today I miss the morning wake up calls of “Om Namah Shivay…..Herbal tea is coming”. The way I was looked after in this trip by the Karnali’ team was nothing but Divine Grace. Working for money can make you give maximum 100% of your abilities….but working from heart can surprise you with a lot more, each member of Karnali worked from their Heart. Their care reflected Love and light and hence even thought the trip was not as easy, they made sure we were supported and safe at every step.

Last but not the least, a portion of the success of my yatra is purely because Karnali made sure this was a memorable experience. When you plan your trip with people who work from their heart, you know you are going to be taken care of. Simply surrender to Shiva and make this happen with the right people… I did!!!

Love and Light,
Vaishali

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole team of Karnali Excursions from the bottom of my heart for providing such magical and mystical tour of Mansarovar and Kailash Yatra in Aug 2011. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - from start to finish - and feel previleged to have undertaken such a memorable journey leading to an out of this world experience.

The journey towards Mansarovar and the Parikrama itself was like a dream - reaching a goal that I set out to achieve - and all this was possible only because of the personal attention, care and encouragement from the whole team of Karnali Tours. I will never forget the constant reminders from your staff about personal health care, eating enough food to keep up the energy, following directions and completing the whole yatra so successfully. There was never any panic or trauma felt by the group despite many mishaps on the way i.e landslides, health issues, accidents etc. The wealth of knowledge and experience of the Karnali Team is world class and they were very cautious and caring at all times. The personal touch made us all feel special and no words can thank you all enough for such a magnificent journey.

Please pass my personal thanks and gratitude to all staff i.e Hirabhai, Vaishali, Bhavna, Sarla Aunty, Vishnubhai, Narayanbhai, Govindabhai, Paswanbhai, Tendibhai, WangChu, Mamuji and others that I have missed the names of. Of course a very special thanks to the Chef Daiji whom i got to know a little more - a very polite and a thorough gentleman - and a great chef (loved all the food that was served at all times and in all kinds of weather). Without them this yatra would not have been possible.

Thank you once again for a truly great experience and hope to travel with Karnali Tours in the future.

Karnali Team - All the best for now and future - a great tour company to travel with.
