Mount Kailash, the sacred mountain, Hindus take this  as the original abode of Lord Shiva, to Buddist it is Mount Meru birthplace of Cakrasamvara, the supreme bliss, to jain it is the place where Tirthankara attained the moksha

Pilgrimage to this sacred land has become very popular to the nonreligious people also. Every year there are many pilgrims & travelers they visit the sacred mountain & make the Kora of 52km long in 2-3 days. It is the journey of a lifetime to ” Navel of the earth” as it is said by many religious texts, & place of purity, Divinity & one can get rid of sins once visited here in his/her lifetime. In this trip, the Guge Kingdom, Everest Base camp & central Tibet has been included. So it is a package of all tibet. Guge kingdom with Tholing & Tsaprang ruins shows the ancient civilization of 10th century when the last king of Zanda was living, it is important to trade route between India & Tibet.

Everest base camp visit is one of thirst of the travelers who would like to be in the base of the tallest peak of the World. fascinations of the Rongbuk monastery at the base at 5000m will definitely give you the purity & extreme spirituality in you by sighting the peak of Mount Everest. The visit to central Tibet Including Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, Sakya Monastery makes it more enjoyable with the landscapes of the Yarlung tsampa river with the barren mountains. Lhasa is a capital city having the treasures of the Buddhism’s extreme development, this would be reflected in the visit of Potala Palace, Norbulikha Palace, Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery, Jokhang Temple & Barkhor Street visit.

The trip starts & ends in Kathmandu, taking Kathmandu to Lhasa flight & tour to Tibetan land by van.  In kora, for 4 days it involves trekking including inner kora. Innerkora is one of the strenuous trekking programs to circle the mountain Kailash & Nandi in a day covering 35km walk. It has only 2 monasteries & no other human settlements during the kora. The road is rocky, iced & crevices.

Enjoy the journey of a lifetime.

Simply put "WOW". I have never met more responsible people in my life. They made sure every step of the way was taken care of from the drivers, tour guides, trek guides, porters and hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this company for its hard working, responsible and friendly people. The people make a company. Special thanks to: Anuja "the planner", Chitiz & Ashmir "the ultimate trekking guides" and finally Robin "the enthusiastic jungle bird watcher".

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip!

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip! We did the trip that included time in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan National Park and a 5-day trek around Annapurna. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we had guides showing us around and everything was perfectly planned for us. Maila, our trekking guide was amazing and had so much knowledge! It was a great trip!

Incredibly well organized

This company was amazing. Incredibly well organized. I felt safe and spoiled. Our airport transports were always early and waiting for us. All of our reservations for our accommodations and busses were perfect. The temple tour we took was super fun and educational. Some of our luggage got stuck in our layover country and between this travel agency and our hotel they were able to get it for us and deliver it the next day. We also had a 10month old traveling with us and they made sure that our accommodation and travel plans were safe for him. During our 5 days of trekking, we had THE BEST guide/sherpa. I would positively let them plan another trip for us. Thank you!!!!

I had a wonderful experience

I recently booked a tour with Plan Holidays, and I had a wonderful experience. Anuja scheduled the tour, and it was comforting to have our trip covered without any concerns. Our guide Shiva took us through Kathmandu, and showed all us the highlights of the city and provided us with the cultural and historical background. We also did the Poon Hill Trek with guides Chitiz and Ashmir, who provided a peaceful hike through the Himalayas. On our last two days, we spent time in Chitwan National Park, where our guide, Robin, took us on adventures where we saw crocodiles and rhinos. The entire package was affordable, and our guides met our every need; they went out of their way for us on many occasions. It was comforting to get off the bus and see our guides waiting for us with our name tags. I would highly encourage anyone to book a trip through this company. I promise that you will have an amazing experience--five stars!
