I would like to share my miserable experience with Sankara yatra a unit of Sri Sankara channel.

We saw the advertisements of in Sri Sankara Yatra about pilgrimage trip to north India and Nepal.

My aged mother got impressed with the advertisements and told me to call to their bangalore office.080-430009**. There is a so called tour organiser Mrs. Kanchana whose talk and attitude was so over confident explained everything in a very stylish manner.

The tour cost was 30500 Rs per person

Including in Cost:

  1. Arrival and Departure arrangement.

  2. Hotel in Kathmandu on twin sharing for 02 Nights.

  3. Hotel in Pokhara on twin sharing for 02 nights.

  4. Hotel in Jomsom for 01 night.

  5. Vegetarian food.

  6. Flight Pokhara – Jomsom – Pokhara – Kathmandu.

  7. English and Hindi speaking Nepali Guide.

  8. All ground transportation on private car/Van/Hi ace/ Bus

  9. Local and shared jeep from Jomsom – Muktinath - Jomsom.

  10. Entrance fees of Muktinath, Manakamana cable car and in sightseeing

Not Including in Cost:

  1. Extra activities, personal expenses.

  2. Tipping.

  3. Emergency evacuation and Medical expenses.

  4. Bike Charges.

  5. Travel Insurance.

Even Though they were other tour operators in chennai who are running tour to the same places cheaper than sankara yatra, we prefered and paid the amount as no one was conducting tour to nepal in November.

The lady in charge Kanchana told that they very well experienced in conducting tour to north india and nepal.

whenever we questioned regarding the weather and other conditions she use to cover with that it is our job, and she will take care of everything.

But at last two days before the tour, we received a call and informed that our tour is cancelled, because in oct 2014 there was a big storm in nepal especially in Mukthinath.

This lady being a very much experienced, and people like sankara tv, who are well known for their channel, has started this yatra business just to spoil their names because of the sudden cancellation our flight tickets, that we bought, we lost the money.

There was no proper answer from sankara yatra team.IT SEEMS THAT THESE PEOPLE JUST BOOK TOUR TAKE MONEY AND SELL PEOPLE TO NEPAL LOCAL TRAVEL AGENTS, THEY DON'T DIRECTLY OPERATE THE TOUR DIRECTLY.We came to know later from public.The lady in charge use to run Muktinath corporation before and she could not run a single tour to nepal properly.

Sri sankara channel has proved that they need only money from people, but not wish to provide proper service.
