My 2nd yatra to Kailash with Himalayan Joy Adventures was nothing but spectacular. The meticulous planning by Cholendra's team from the moment we arrived in Kathmandu, right through to arranging 4x4 vehicles for ground movement, hotel bookings during the journey, preparing fresh and warm food at every stop, making sure the guides and helpers were attending to our needs, taking care of customs and immigration both in Nepal and Tibet (China), and to attend to all personal needs of the yaris were done with extra ordinary professionalism and an ever warming smile.
On this occasion, Cholendra, with his counterpart Tashi in Tibet organised the side trip to walk towards the North Face of Kailash to reach within 20 meters of the Grand Mountain. It was a surreal experience that will remain etched in my body and soul and bring back spiritual moments that are beyond description. To be alone with the "father" in grand snow-covered auditorium, watching in awe the grand pillars of the cathedral that arise in front of you like the gates of the yonder world with the swelling winds humming AUM, the pranava mantra, is a mesmerising and fully absorbing experience.
Thank you Cholendra for yet again making us all feel at ease in some of the most trying and challenging moments of the yatra. God bless you.
Despite being my first Kailash Yatra, what an awesome experience it was! Thanks to the amazing team by Cholendra. Together as a team, they are friendly, knowledgeable and absolutely passionate about their work. Above all, they are wholly reliable! Having had the first-hand experience of how committed the team was in giving the best possible service without compromising the comfort and the safety of our group members; these are the guys that you would want to engage with to have your backs! Regardless of what it may be, they have proven to come to one's rescue with a smile. Kudos! Can't thank you enough, yet again thank you Cholendra for the outstanding efforts and the exceptional hospitality.
Journey to Mount Kailash...my first ...a difficult one but made possible by Cholendra and his capable team. It was indeed a journey that left a deep imprint in my heart..Definitely would recommend the Himalayan Joy for anyone wanting to make a journey to Kailash. Thank u very much Cholendra and team for making it possible for me.Aum namah shivayae.
I and a group of 15 adults (men and women) of mostly aged 50 and above entrusted ourselves with Cholendra and his assistants for a 18 day Mount Kailash Yatra. With love, care, knowledge and assistance beyond their normal duties Cholendra and his team ensured all 16 of us completed the Yatra. Moments of despair among us were put to rest or resolved by Cholendra and his able and trusted team always with captivating smiles, jokes and relevant advice or suggestions. Cholendra's well chosen and friendly Tibetan guide, Tashi was likewise a bundle of energy always attending admirably to the smallest of needs. I, the oldest at 69 years had a pleasant and memorable Yatra. I would highly recommend them for their tours.
Thank you Cholendra, Tika, Purna, Kedar, Buddhi, Tilanath, and Kumar. God bless you and your families
To undertake the Mt Kailash/ Mansarovar Yatra with completion of the outer Kora is a dream.
My dream became a reality this June, thanks to Himalayan Joy Adventure.
My initial contact with Mr. Cholendra began almost a year ago. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful about any questions I asked. His prompt replies to my queries were very comforting.
I had read and heard about this trip but nothing could have prepared me about how arduous this journey is.
However, Cholendra and his team were always calm confident and went about whatever needed to be done.
Coming down the Dolmala pass I felt that my legs could not possibly walk another 14 Kms.
However, Cholendra along with his Tibetan counterpart Mr. Tashi scrambled to make alternative arrangements. No horses available!! However, they were able to arrange for a 4 wheel drive for me.
I cannot say enough for Himalayan Joy Adventure and the entire team. They are outstanding in their commitment to the safety and comfort of travelers under their care.
I am hoping to do more trips in Nepal and Bhutan with Cholendra and his team.
THANK YOU Himalayan Joy Adventurer and keep up the good work.
