Client Reviews

Hats off to you and your team

Hi Basu, I had been with your team to Kailash this year. First of all congratulations to you, as you have a wonderful team who are incarnates of hospitality. The best food I've had in high altitude treks. We went for touching Kailash and khandsanglam la, inner kora. Though we were just 4and2 respectively your team members did an awesome job of taking us through the routes. Given an opportunity I would love to travel with you people again and do ashtapaad and nandi parikrama. Thank you for making my trip a memorable experience. Hats off to you and your team.

Wish to convey my heart full thanks to the entire group of touch kailash

Wish to convey my heart full thanks to the entire group of touch kailash team be it in nepal or tibet for making our journey to muktinath and kailash manasarovar a grand success. Particular thanks to Shri Ramana at hyderabad and Shri Dil  and also Lokesh in nepal. The amount of hospitality and kindness shown by them at each and every point is worth appreciating. I am short of words in expressing my gratitude to the team. May the God Almighty give them health wealth and happiness to organize such tours and win the hearts of many piligrims like us. Though we were afraid of choosing August month for our journey, the trip was very pleasant and the beauty of nepal can be seen only during this period. Greenery all around was pleasing to our eyes. May the Almighty give touch kailash travels a blessing for more successful tours.

Recommendations for Yatra

Embark on your Mount Kailash pilgrimage worry-free with our recommended Mount Kailash Travel Insurance. Tailored for the unique challenges of this sacred journey, it provides coverage for trip disruptions, medical emergencies, and unforeseen events. Prioritize your safety and peace of mind as you explore the spiritual wonders of Mount Kailash with our specialized travel insurance.

High altitudes pose challenges like lower oxygen levels, inducing symptoms such as headaches, nausea, lethargy, and breathlessness. These affect everyone, regardless of age or fitness. Acclimatization is crucial; avoid tranquilizers and antibiotics. Slow down activities, rest frequently, and reduce talking. Walk slowly, keep loads light, and observe silence with a smile. Consume liquids, avoid sudden exertion, and protect against cold. Don't bathe in streams, protect against dust and sun, and follow experienced guides. Prioritize rest, hydration, and warm clothing during winter.

Wi-Fi will be accessible in Kathmandu, but as we venture into the more secluded regions of Nepal, connectivity will be restricted. The tour guide will carry a satellite phone for emergency communication. Wi-Fi connection is more accessible in the Tibet region as well, while there are no such facilities in Mansarovar, and during the Parikrama. 

Options for e-sims are widely available in supported devices for cellular data, while mainstream social media including WhatsApp and Facebook are prohibited in China. The use of VPNs may allow for seamless communication with family back home. 

During May to September, temperatures in Nepal and Tibet range from 10 to 22°C during the day. Despite the moderate daytime temperatures, the intense sun at high altitudes can create a much warmer sensation. Nighttime temperatures may drop significantly, reaching as low as -5°C.

As altitude increases, the body requires time to adapt to lower oxygen levels through a process known as acclimatization. Proper acclimatization is crucial for maintaining health and ensuring a comfortable journey at high altitudes. Most individuals are affected by the reduced oxygen levels at elevations exceeding 2,500 meters. Diamox (Acetazolamide) has proven to be highly effective in facilitating acclimatization and countering High Altitude Sickness. Further details will be provided closer to the journey.

Please consult your doctor and undergo a medical examination before embarking on the Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar yatra. Given the high altitudes, it is advisable to begin exercises such as walking, jogging, yoga, and breathing exercises at least a month prior to ensure a successful journey.
