Trip Overview

Mount Kailash is considered holy by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. In ancient texts, it is referred to as the center of the world. The reason can be understood from the geographical significance of this place as within 30 miles radius, there are the sources of the mighty rivers Indus (north called “Sindhu” in India), Sutlej (in west), Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsang-po in east), and Karnali (largest tributary to the Ganges in south). Mount Kailash trekking tour is one of the most demanding and challenging of treks for pilgrims in the world. This trek route in Tibet is widely known as the kora around the Mt. Kailash which is sacred to four religions and a deeply numinous place.

 

The Mansarovar Lake has its own importance. In Hindu mythology, Lake Manasarovar was formed by Lord Brahma, who is the creator god. The lake is considered very sacred by Tibetans, Buddhist, Hindus, and Jains. According to legend, Lake Manasarovara is the lake in which a great Tibetan monk saw the letters “Aha”, ” Kha”, ” Mha”. Lake Manasarovar is situated 2000 km from Lhasa is world’s highest freshwater lake.

First step in the Everest Base Camp

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Everest trekking in Nepal

Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.

Hi! it’s me, Anna from Central London, I am a landscape photographer, love to take pictures of landscapes and portraits all around the world. My trip to Nepal was awesome with the TMG guys. TMG managed well during my trip. Plus point is TMG members are also photographers. I worked with the team for 5 weeks on video and photography projects. I highly recommend the TMG team if you want to know beautiful Nepal.

As regards this, we would like to tell you now that you should bring some extra cash for the above situation, or for extra days, however, the above situation is just like once in a blue moon because Nepal is 99% politically stable.
