  2. Hello tarun ji, we are planning to do twin kailash yatra (kinnaur and shrikhand Mahadev ) in the month of June. Can you please suggest some local travel agents to help us out. Thank you.

  3. I don’t think it is a good idea to plan Srikhand or Kinnaur Kailash in June. That’s a bit technical and risky. If at all you want to go, you should go in July and August.

    You may try Rachho Trekkers or Sonu Negi for such services. You’ll find his email id/ phone number on Google.

    Though J haven’t used his services but he is an online acquaintance.
