"We were the June 18’ Yatra batch to visit Mt Kailash, Great Girish the Lead. Our dream Yatra was fulfilled with Max holidays with comfort, safety the most. Travelling all the way from Sydney for the Yatra we felt pampered most. Our expectation was nothing more than what was told by Max & we were taken care beyond our expectation. Friendly staff & sherpas was great & Mr. Vishal Gogia himself travelling with us was our life time POT LUCK. Warmth we enjoyed by Max & fellow pilgrims will last in memory for ever. We made great friends. This Yatra is unique & we felt touching Gods’ feet @ ‘Charan Sparish’ foot of Mt Kailash was the high light of the Yatra. We will cherish those moments rest of our lives. Thanks to Max. for the excellent care given throughout. We heard lots from other groups which gave us opportunity to feel many times that Max is by far THE BEST. We will recommend to anybody anytime to travel with Max. Om Nama Shivaya!"

"It was last year November when I decided to visit abode of Lord Shiva - Mount Kailas. I searched a lot on the internet to find out a good travel agent who can be reliable for this journey. I was so glad that I found max holidays. The team was very helpful throughout the journey. I would like to appreciate the entire Kailas crew who were very supportive and helpful. I would like to take this moment to give my special thanks to Mr. Vishal Gogia as CEO in this organization. Though, every journey is a blessing from Lord Shiva, however, my journey to Mount Kailas and Lake Mansarovar wouldn't have possible without support from Laxman. The kailas Journey's crew that I met in Hilsa, were the most finest people I have ever met in my life. All in all, these people made my journey a memorable one!"
