Quench Your Thirst for Adventure While Having an Intense Spiritual Experience

You must have heard about the life-changing Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. But if you haven't undertaken this deeply spiritual journey yet, now is your time. Both Mount Kailash and the Lake Mansarovar are held in high esteem by followers of religions like Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Whether you are planning to satisfy your thirst for adventure or divinity, this yatra is all you need. On the one hand, circumambulating Mount Kailash is believed to bring good fortune. On the other, taking a holy dip in the Lake Mansarovar is known to purify your soul.

"We were a group of 20 passengers and what we all got during the tour was none other than a pack of huge enjoyment. The thing that left me awestruck during the Kailash Yatra was the passion and devotion in the pilgrims there who irrespective how old they are were actively trekking on foot wherever needed. I would personally like to thank the whole team of Max Holidays for guiding us in a very proper manner throughout the whole tour!"
