Kailash Mansarovar Yatra for Hindu Pilgrimage - 16 Days

For family of young and senior members in Australia and also from Fiji, USA, Europe and South Africa.

Kailash is one of the most holy yatra destination for Hindus but is full of difficulties and risks to life due to high altitude conditions and remoteness of the location in the harshness of the Tibetan Plateau.
