Adi Kailash Land & Om Parwat

Terms and Services

A trip to Adi Kailash and Om Parvat, conducted in remote land of Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), under extreme inhospitable weather conditions and lack of tourism infrastructure. This spiritual adventure in high altitude is a very challenging task for the travellers and at the same time it is equally difficult for the tour operators to organise this trip. Max Holidays, as a responsible business body Recognised by Govt. of India, Ministry of Tourism and also as an experienced tour operating company, always do its best to organise trip without changes or delays in the services. But the nature of those trips to Adi Kailash and Om Parvat is very unpredictable and there are many things which are beyond the control of the Company, its team and also its vendors/ counterparts in Nepal and China. This is why for Adi Kailash and Om Parvat tours the policy of the Company for bookings, cancellation, refund, amendment etc are very strict as compare to other normal tours.
