What our travellers have to say .....

Om Namah Shivaya! It was like a dream come true by making a visit to holy Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar. Max Holidays and its team did a very good job and everything they organised for us was above our expectations. Kailash Yatra was not very difficult as I had heard but definitely you need to be in good hand to make it successful. Mr. Vishal Gogia of Max Holidays and his team members deserve appreciation for the great work they are doing for pilgrims travelling in the remote land of Kailash Manasarovar. My best wishes for them!"

Meena Kumari

Har Har Mahadev Vishal ji. Our group came back with happiest memories of travelling to the abode of Lord Shiva and I must congratulate your agency for the utmost perfection you tried for. I must mention that in such a high altitude and remote region it is not easy for you guys to keep everything in a best shape, but whatever your team did was perhaps the best they could do for our comfort and safety. Mr. Shivachandran has asked me to pay special thanks for taking good care of his wife while she was unwell during the trip. Love you guys. May lord bless you all! "

Srikanth Swami

I was failing to make this trip possible for last many years. The information and support available online and on telephone from many agencies was not enough and that accurate as Max Holidays provided me. They have been honest in providing each piece of information correctly rather than making it more commercial for their own benefits. With the great help of Mr. Girish and others in Max, I was able to prepare myself well for this spiritual journey. I realised how important it is to be in good hands when you undertake trips like Kailash Manasarovar Yatra."
