    Mount kailash and Manasarovar trip 2013

    We had an amazing time on a trip of a lifetime to Kailash and Manasarovar, with Lumle holidays. There was 5 of us in our group aged 18, 21, 33, 33, and 34 and the total group size was 28. We were all nervous and anxious about the trip as we didn’t know what to expect. We had done some research and spoke to a few people who had been previously, and found out as much information as we could, but as this is an unusual trip is was difficult to predict what to expect and therefore we were prepared as best we could. We all wanted to reach Kailash and complete the trip in good health and avoid any issues or problems. Narayan, of Lumle holidays, and his team lead us well throughout the trip and we had briefing meetings every evening to ensure we were always prepared for the days ahead. Even before the trip, Narayan was available to answer any questions we had to ensure we were fully prepared. The accommodation was as good as you can expect in remote areas of Tibet, where there is very limited resources available. The accommodation was very basic, but the rooms and beds were very clean and well presented. We were lucky to have small rooms and only shared rooms with 4-5 other people. The food was prepared fresh everyday and it was amazing. The cooks catered to our needs and made us pasta, noodles and chips, which really made our day, when we were cold and tired. The sherpas, cooks and the rest of the team were very helpful and extremely hard working. They were always present to ask questions. Narayan was open to suggestions, in order to make the trip successful and trying to cater for everyone’s need, which is obviously, difficult in a large group. Travelling through Tibet is not easy, but the team did their best to ensure that everything went smoothly as possible. The group of 28 people all got on well and made friends. It was a well mixed group ranging from 12 years old to over 65 years old. By the end of the trips, we were like a big family, going through the good and bad times during the trip and supporting each other during the hard times. We had a lot of fun. It is tough trip, with long travelling days and early morning starts but it was worth it.
    The views were absolutely amazing and stunning, making it an experience of a lifetime which makes up for the lack of facilities and remoteness. It was so peaceful and quite. We would definitely recommend Lumle travels for this trip and we hope we can do this again in the future. Thank you to Narayan and his team for looking after us and making this the best trip and best experience ever. Hariom

    Kailash Manasarovar

    Like many, I was anxious about the trip, the uncertainties ,etc. etc…however, Narayan and his friendly team allayed our anxiety by their homely, friendly approach. Narayan was pragmatic. He changed the plan at times heeding to majority’s ideas. His brother in law at Kathmandu was a lovely person who took care of us excellently. The drivers and Sherpa’s were very skilled and guided us throughout the journey and brought back us safely. The whole unit jelled as an unit no later than few days after the start of the journey. Throughout the journey, Narayan and his team had a caring approach towards everyone. I felt that I made this trip successfully not only due to Gods grace but also due to the LUMELY TRAVELS

    We enjoyed the company of each and everyone travelled in this trip and wish travel with this group again. It is the best group we have travelled and it was one big family.

    Mount kailash and Manasarovar trip 2013

    We were very anxious and had some sort of fear when we started our trip from London. We were received well with garlands at Kathmandu airport by Lumle travels staff. Accommodation and food was good through out the journey. We had 8 Sherpa’s for 28 people and they helped everyone through out. Our fear and anxiety were gone when all of us joined to gather as a team. Unlike other holidays and pilgrimage, this trip was completely packed with lot of uncertainties. Problems with Weather, food, accommodation, road condition, language, low oxygen at high altitude, people getting ill etc were dealt very well by lumle travel staff including Sherpa’s. Their help during the Parikramma is incomparable when compared to the service provided by the other travel groups travelled at the same time. Our nephew who is 12 years old is also accompanied with us and he also managed well. This is one of the life time holiday for us. Our memories about this trip are ever green in our minds. Many thanks to Lumle travels for providing good service and helping everyone to complete the trip successfully.

    Kailash Mountain and Manasarovar

    Dear Narayan the trip to Kailash Mountain and Manasarovar was a fantastic journey. I was anxious as I was going to take this spiritual journey alone. However as we joined you and your team and the rest of the group it was like a family. All arrangements for the trip were well organised. You did your best for the group in terms of the travel, accommodation and eating arrangements. I had an amazing time and I would not hesitate to use your services again and will be recommending you again. Thank you Narayan.

    Mount Kailash August 2013

    The trip was very well organised, and we all had a great time. The team was very flexible and would cater to everyone’s needs which made the trip very enjoyable (which could have otherwise been quite a difficult trip). The food was great, and the accommodation in Tibet was as good as it gets there. They had given us plenty of information about the requirements and necessities for this trip so everyone was well prepared. They also made sure that everyone became familiar with each other on the tour, and thanks to them I got to know a lot of nice people! Tibet is a beautiful country, and the nature itself will touch you. It was an awesome trip!

    Mount Kailash 2013

    Narayan & his team at Lumle Holidays made my Kailash Manasarovar trip a pleasure to be part of. From the greeting at Kathmandu airport to my final departure they provided just the right level of service, attentive without being overpowering and also available if anyone needed help or advice. This, coupled with joining up with a group of people who were welcoming & friendly made it a holiday to remember. Despite the fact that travelling in Tibet is not always straightforward everyone in the group pulled together, helping & encouraging each other which, together with the outstanding team of guides, Sherpa’s & drivers made for an exciting & memorable trip. Thank you Narayan & please pass my thanks once again to your team, I can highly recommend Lumle Holidays to anyone thinking of taking a trip to the region.

    Kailash Trip 2013

    Hi Narayan – what can we say, We had a wonderful holiday in Nepal, our wishes all come to gather when planned to visit Mount Kailash and Manasarovar trip with Lumle Holidays. The facilities on the tour were very good and we were given excellent
    advice in preparation for the trip. Everything was extremely well organised and we were delighted with every aspect, from the excellent guides to the well planned itinerary. The scenery was stunning and the whole experience added up to a trip of a
    lifetime. I’d thoroughly recommend Lumle if you are planning a trip to the region. Helen and Ashok Premji

    Mount Kailash (Tibet)-brilliant!

    A huge thank you to Lumle Holidays Limited, especially Narayan, for making my dream come true. His advice and guidance was excellent. This was my first time as a single traveller and am very grateful to him for arranging the trip. I was quite anxious initially but he ensured that l was paired with person(s) of similar background and interest.

    The staff were dedicated and looked after us very well; everything went according to plan, thanks to our Tibetan guide (Dorjee) and the Nepali tour operator. The transport, food, allowance for acclimatization, and hotel accommodation in Kathmandu was exceptional. My personal porter (Jansu) during the parikrama was amazing and so helpful. Apart from the problem of sanitation in Tibet, the country is breath-taking and well worth the visit. Once again,

    l would like to thank Lumle Holidays and Narayan for making this one of the most memorable and cherished trips of my life and would definitely recommend them to anyone planning this yatra.

    Pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and trek to Everest Base Camp

    I booked my pilgrimage to Manasarowar, Mt Kailash and a holiday up to Base Camp with Lumle Holidays because 1) they were cost effective. 2) I had to return to the UK by the 25/6/12. Our group of pilgrims completed the Yatra a day before schedule. Credit to the driver and excellent roads in Tibet. The cost of the extra night’s accommodation in our 4* hotel was borne by Lumle. The trek up to Everest Base Camp could not be completed as a protester had planted a Tibetan flag, and the route was closed for two days. As monies could not be refunded, an alternative itinerary was organised by Lumle which included a morning flight over Everest, sight-seeing in Kathmandu and a return trip to Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. This was organised within a few hours. Also all hotel bills were met and the re-booking of my return flight was completed free of charge by a Lumle representative in Kathmandu. This was an excellent alternative, as I appreciate admire and respect Buddhism I will look forward to completing my trek to Base Camp with Lumle Holiday’s in October 2013.

    Kailash Manasarovar 2013 trip

    The Kailash Manasarovar 2013 trip organised by the Lumle team was perfect from start to finish. Being one of the most difficult pilgrimages in the world, attention to the minute details was critical. Narayan and his team did a wonderful job at it. We had plenty of instructions before the start of the trip and during the trip itself, so that we could be physically and mentally prepared for it. Actually, the trip turned out to be much less strenuous than what we had anticipated. Full credit for it goes to the excellent facilities provided and the very helpful and courteous support staff. Eleven support staff for 28 members is a very good ratio.

    Accommodation along the way were the best available. We had been informed prior to the start of the trip that some stops in Tibet had only basic accommodation. Actually, they all exceeded our expectations and we were pleasantly surprised to see very clean rooms and bedding everywhere. The 4-star hotels in Kathmandu and Saga were as good as any in the Western world, and probably as expensive as well. The rapid rate of improvements in roads and hotels along the way may mean that in future this trip will have such hotels at all stops.

    As usual in tours of this kind, the whole party of members and staff became like a big family. I am sure that many of them will maintain the links and communication well into the future. We would be excited if any of the members, who were all London-based, or the Kathmandu and Tibet based staff would visit us in the Land Down Under. “We will slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you!”

    Thank you again and congratulations to Narayan and the Lumle team for a well organised trip of a lifetime. We highly recommend Lumle for this and other tours they operate. And, I wish Suraj Sharma success in joining a Masters program in Australia.

    Kind Regards
