Fitness

Anyone who can walk for an average of 4-5 hours a day can make this trip. The itinerary is programmed to help get the clients acclimatisation to the gradual rise in altitude. All participants are advised to check their fitness before joining the trip.

Hello Pooja,

My mother and brother have gone to this tour and have returned back safe and happy..My mother who is aged 65 years also was able to make it till the parikrama, thanks to all of your team’s efforts.Pooja has been really helpful in taking an initiative to inform all the details and also the ground realities which helped us prepare well for the tour. The tourist bungalows, the staff, food were all good and especially the staff who went a long way to make the stay and the trip comfortable for my mother.

A few places where we felt that this tour was memorable –
1. At the Mansarovar where enough time was given for the rituals.
2. When the staff and the tourists made hot pakodas and mint chutney and enjoyed them in the evening while watching the beauty of Kailash mountain.
3. The tourist bungalow which had a view of Kailash from its window was wonderful

The only thing that we felt could have made this tour more wonderful was to have time for acclimatisation. It seemed like a whirlwind tour and even when there was time and good weather, they pressed on with the tour not giving much time for acclimatisation. This may have been due to the fact that the weather conditions change frequently and they wanted to make the best use when the weather permitted them.

Overall a magnificent tour. A few Pics attached.
