Team Dinesh you did it again. You guys are Excellent. This was my second trip to Holy Kailash and Lake Manasarovar with Nature Explore. It was a wonderful and a very divine journey. My first trip was in 2018 and I again came back in 2019 to complete the inner kora North face which I completed successfully with Dinesh’s support. Thank you, Dinesh!!! This I can say is the greatest achievement of this lifetime. We witnessed the celestial beings in Lake Manasarovar on the full moon at 3:30 am. That was a very divine and an amazing experience. We also briefly stopped by and saw Lake Rakshastal on our way. After Havan Yagna at Lake Manasarovar, our 4 days parikrama started from the Yam Duwaar. The very experienced Sherpa team was always available for help throughout the journey. They were very dedicated and hardworking, never stopped smiling, were very polite and took all measures to ensure we were safe. As always, we were served hot nourishing meals and were provided with the best accommodation. On our way back we also stopped by the Brahmaputra River and the priest blessed us all with the holy water. A Big Thank You Nature Explore Trekking Team. I am looking forward to my third trip with you. BTW we also got the opportunity to visit the great Potala Palace. I strongly recommend Nature Explore Trekking for Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar Yatra.
