Very Smooth Journey To Mount Kailash

Ashwani Kumar

Om Har Har Mahadev! It was divine! It was mystical! It was magical! And the best part, it was, a comfortable and very smooth journey to Mount Kailash Bhole Few things command more respect hard work, integrity, dedication and the ability to follow through. These are among the many attributes we experienced from start to finish when organizing our trip to Kailash Mansarovar with Trip to Temple. This travel agency is an excellent listener and pays attention to detail; a lost quality in today’s world. I must say that thanks to Vikas Mishra along with his team. Our two-week journey through Kailash Mansarover significantly exceeded all of our expectations. To us, even important than a great relationship between the tour company and the is the one between the travel company's staff and their preferred services, like hotels, tour guides, drivers, etc. to temple provide all these services.

Highly Satisfied

S.K. SHARMA

We took the services of 'Trip To Temples' for our pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar from 23.05.18 to 05.06.18. We are highly satisfied with the facilities and the arrangements made by the Travel group. The guide and all other associated people of the group were highly cooperative and well-informed. Daily briefing was done to us and mandatory daily medical checks were also done satisfactorily. Everything from food to the medical facilities extended were par excellent, with a special mention of the food which was pure Jain food and tasted just like home food. The programme was very well designed in all aspects. We did not face any problem in stay arrangements except at Mansarover where we faced some problem as the bus had got stuck on the way and reached late. Mr. Manish of 'Trip To Temple' guided us really well and was very prompt in answering all our queries for the preparations prior to the journey. The videography of our entire trip done exclusively for our group was really a wonderful experience and the video was also telecast on Soham TV. We recommend this group's services to all. Thanks to Trip To Temple for such a rememberable lifetime journey.
