We had an amazing time on a trip of a lifetime to Kailash and Manasarovar, with Lumle holidays. There was 5 of us in our group aged 18, 21, 33, 33, and 34 and the total group size was 28. We were all nervous and anxious about the trip as we didn’t know what to expect. We had done some research and spoke to a few people who had been previously, and found out as much information as we could, but as this is an unusual trip is was difficult to predict what to expect and therefore we were prepared as best we could. We all wanted to reach Kailash and complete the trip in good health and avoid any issues or problems. Narayan, of Lumle holidays, and his team lead us well throughout the trip and we had briefing meetings every evening to ensure we were always prepared for the days ahead. Even before the trip, Narayan was available to answer any questions we had to ensure we were fully prepared. The accommodation was as good as you can expect in remote areas of Tibet, where there is very limited resources available. The accommodation was very basic, but the rooms and beds were very clean and well presented. We were lucky to have small rooms and only shared rooms with 4-5 other people. The food was prepared fresh everyday and it was amazing. The cooks catered to our needs and made us pasta, noodles and chips, which really made our day, when we were cold and tired. The sherpas, cooks and the rest of the team were very helpful and extremely hard working. They were always present to ask questions. Narayan was open to suggestions, in order to make the trip successful and trying to cater for everyone’s need, which is obviously, difficult in a large group. Travelling through Tibet is not easy, but the team did their best to ensure that everything went smoothly as possible. The group of 28 people all got on well and made friends. It was a well mixed group ranging from 12 years old to over 65 years old. By the end of the trips, we were like a big family, going through the good and bad times during the trip and supporting each other during the hard times. We had a lot of fun. It is tough trip, with long travelling days and early morning starts but it was worth it.
The views were absolutely amazing and stunning, making it an experience of a lifetime which makes up for the lack of facilities and remoteness. It was so peaceful and quite. We would definitely recommend Lumle travels for this trip and we hope we can do this again in the future. Thank you to Narayan and his team for looking after us and making this the best trip and best experience ever. Hariom
