Trip Overview

Travel to the abode of Lord Shiva in the most comfortable sojourn.

Mt. Kailash has induced a magnetic attraction in the minds of every pilgrim, thus, making it the most visited sacred site in western Tibet. It offers an opportunity to every visitor and pilgrim groups from around the world for achieving salvation from ignorance and the appalling delusion of everyday life. One of the key aspects for every spiritual person is to take a holy dip in Lake Manasarovar as it is considered to be a revered sanctuary. It signifies the spirit of Brahma, creator of the Universe “Mana” meaning mind or consciousness and “Sarovar” meaning holy lake.

Everest and several other Himalayan Peaks.
