Kailash Manasarovar Trek

The name Kailash Mansarovar Tour came from Mt. Kailash and Lake Mansarovar. The former is looked upon as an abode of Lord Shiva, the powerful deity of the Hindus; the latter is also looked upon with the same religious significance. These two are not only of great values to the Hindus but also to the Buddhists. Kailash Mansarovar Tour has been categorized as a pilgrimage tour, wherein hundreds of devotees seek the blessings of Lord Shiva and dip into Mansarovar Lake, however, we will make this tour safe and hassle free for you. This tour starts from April and continues till September and is an all-inclusive tour, and it begins with a visit to Pashupatinath, one of the main temples of the Lord Shiva, and there is no better way to start this tour than a visit to this temple.
