Kailash Mansarovar, The best place and vacation ever! We had kora (parikarma) in September - the last kailash kora for foreigners of the year. And that was just sooo special sooo amazing! Our tour company who did best for us was Touch kailash Travels and Tours from Kathmandu. It was our second trip with them. The first one was in June - tour to Lhasa (from Kathmandu) through another towns and cities visiting different Buddhist monasteries. These guys are just the best! Everything is according to program and many gifts over all. thank you !

Headache, nausea, lassitude, lethargy, breathlessness, general uneasiness [malaise], high irritability, light loss of balance, disorientation, incoherence and insomnia are a few. It is common to all irrespective of the age, sex and physical fitness. Gradual acclimatization is the best answer. Tranquilizers, sleeping dose and strong anti-biotic must be avoided. Some of symptoms indicate that the body mechanism is readjusting to new environments. The best idea is deliberately slow down all the activities and follows the following rules:
