Worst ever tour by Sankara Kailash Yatra

We were one of the poor and pitiable members in the Kailash Yatra in June, 2018. The Kailash Yatra tour was totally mishandled by the tour operator and they totally misused our faith in Hinduism and many fall prey as a victim to Sankara TV advertisements on Yatra.


ITS A TRAP.


No coordination from the time we landed in Lucknow. Partiality to the core in each and every move by tour operator. When we landed in Nepalgunj we were told that the Kit bag was not available despite the tour operator fully well what is the total number of bags required.


At the immigration place was one of the worst experience. From evening 2.00 p.m. to 11.00 no water, no food and no toilet. The tour operator didn't bring any water for ten hours. Everybody kept in the van for nearly ten hours. They didn't even provide any snacks leave the dinner part. I pitty the old age people who travelled all along without water and snacks. Most of the members are old and having sugar and bp. How can they survive without water and snacks? Very bad management. Despaite the fact they had one camp nearby at Hilsa they could have provided something to the old people. Immigration toilet was the very very worst many struggled with natures call. Poor ladies and old aged people who paid the money for suffering.


From there the partiality started from allotment of rooms and getting into helicopter. Its a known fact that the bigger group cannot be accommodated in the available helicopters. But you should formed a smaller group to take care. The bigger the group bigger the problem because of the inexperienced operator. I have seen well managed bigger and planned group. The management makes the difference. No planning in any where and everywhere.


Most important point to mention those who wish to take Parikrama. The operator collects a lot of money for parikrama horse and they pay a meagre amount to the horsewala.


The worst part of it they don't even care whether the horse takes you or not. They allot one horse for two people and one will stranded in the mountain. You have walk in the mountain. If you can walk then why should you pay for the horse.


We were collected a lot of money and the operator canvas for the horse, because they get more commission than anything else.


But left in the lurch. No horse to travel despite the payment of money. Language barrier you can't say anything to anybody.


You will be left all alone in the mountains to walk.


NO BODY WALKS THE TALK. I PITY THE PILGRIIMS. THE PITY PILGRIMS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY EVEN WATER AND RAINCOAT DESPITE PAYING HUGE AMOUNT. YOU HAVE GET WET ICE RAIN IN THE MOUNTAINS. NO BODY CARE.


The darchan drama:


The operator placed partiality drama and allots good hotels to their whims and fancies.


The hotels themselves are displaying Not more than two people allowed in a room. But the operators allots four five people in a room. The problem is with high altitude as the night goes in age old people get suffocation due to many number of people allotted in a small room.


The return journey is more horrible than you imagine. We were stranded in a place called Simikot due to bad weather. The partiality the core took place. No flights operated due to bad weather. Only few helicoters operated. Thats the time for tour operators. Minting in money. They demanded 1000 dollars 75000 per person for drop which goes to the tour operator. The govt is providing the helicopter. He is taking the money. Who ever they want to take care were sent back to NepalKanj where you started.


You have to see the plight of pilgrims in Simikot due to bad weather. Food is scarce no supply from mainland due to bad weather. When they resume the flight service after two days, the tour operator become the God. The pilgrims are standing outside the small airport as beggars asking for their passport and ticket with the tour operator who will stand inside the airport where the security wont allow without passport and ticket.


But I thank the operator for providing the good accommodation and food except at immigration.
