A trip to Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar, conducted in remote land of Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), under extreme inhospitable weather conditions and lack of tourism infrastructure.

Max Holidays, as a responsible business body Recognised by Govt. of India, Ministry of Tourism and also as an experienced tour operating company, always do its best to organise trip without changes or delays in the services. But the nature of those trips to Kailash Mansarovar is very unpredictable and there are many things which are beyond the control of the Company, its team and also its vendors/ counterparts in Nepal and China. This is why for Kailash Mansarovar tours the policy of the Company for bookings, cancellation, refund, amendment etc are very strict as compare to other normal tours.

Any person carrying valid passport, with age not more than 70 years, maintaining good health and declared fit by a qualified doctor can undertake a tour to Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar in Tibet through India, Nepal and Tibet entry points, with a preorganised group of travellers. Recently it was declared that a person with above 70 years of age, declared fit by a qualified doctor, can also apply for permits and visa to visit Kailash Mansarovar. However this came with few conditions enforced by the Chinese authorities. The authorities may consider to accept application for such an elderly person only if; (1) He/she has gone through all necessary medical tests and has obtained NOC from his/her doctor; (2) He/she is accompanied by family members (blood relation only) on this trip; and (3), if he/she agrees to deposit an amount of US$1000 upfront to the Chinese authorities, being 'refundable' security deposit for any medical emergency with the traveller while in Tibet. It is recommended, that, such an elderly traveller must go through all necessary medical checks before making a booking and also before going on the trip. As per the rules by Tibetan authorities, person with age of 60 years and above are not permitted to undertake Mt. Kailash parikarama. The decision for issuing permits and allowing parikrama (circumambulation/kora/ paridakshhina) of Mount Kailash lies in the hands of the concerned authorities / officers at Lhasa and Darchen.Check More on Eligibility

Kailash Mansarovar tours are conducted in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) though some small tourist destinations in Nepal side. These trips include three star hotel stay in Kathmandu for overland trip, four or five star hotel in Kathmandu for helicopter trips and three star equivalent hotels in Lhasa. At some places like Nepalgunj in Nepal, Taklakot in Tibet, Shigatse in Tibet, Darchen in the base of Mt. Kailash, Saga in Tibet; some hotels or guesthouses offer three star equivalent services. But, in the event of overflow of travellers, availability of accommodation in those specific hotels/guesthouse may get affected and the traveler in such cases will be offered with the next best available hotel / guesthouse for stay. Most of the places in Kailash Mansarovar yatra and more specifically Simikot, Hilsa, Syabrubesi, Mansarovar, Dhirapukh and Zuthulpukh are not well equipped with good facilities and travellers get only basic accommodation (sometime backcountry accommodation) for stay hence the traveler may have to compromise on quality. It is suggested that traveler should not carry high expectation and adjust with the best possible services made available by our local partners/guides/escorts. No choice for single room / double room / family room / privacy can be entertained. Also take a note that the toilets and bathrooms are not upto the mark and hygienic sometime, even in the reputed guest houses/hotels and the travelers will have to manage with this situation, if occurs. During the stay near lake Mansarovar and also during the trekking, natural toilets are available. We being an old and responsible tour Company, put the best of our efforts to ensure the best possible comfort for our customers but we do not guarantee that we will be able to meet with your expectations.
During the trip our team serve pure vegetarian hot food (without onion & garlic), tea/ coffee and hot water to the travellers. In Nepal side (Kathmandu, Nepalgunj, Simikot, Syabrubesi) the food is organised by the hotel / guesthouse whereas during travel in Tibet our Chef and his team prepare hot food for the traveler in their mobile kitchen. The chef and his team try to offer a basic variety of food to satisfy the taste and need of the group participants. During the parikrama of Mt. Kailash light food, cookies, chocolates, fruits, juices, noodles, porridge, khichdi, etc are the common food items offered by the chef team. In extreme cases, under adverse weather conditions or any other ‘Force Mejeure’ situation, if the traveler get stuck at Hilsa (Nepal-Tibet border area), for a longer time duration, the chef shall ensure for good amount of food for all, but regular variety in the food menu cannot be provided sometimes, if the supply of food material gets affected.
