Mt. Kailash Tour by Flights from Lhasa or Kashgar
Currently, the fastest way to have Mt. Kailash Pilgrimage is via flights from Lhasa, and Kashgar, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Normally, the abrupt ascent is not proper for you to acclimatize to extreme altitude change. Yet, if you have a tight schedule and physically strong and still prefer to have Mt. Kailash Pilgrimage, flying to Kunsha Airport or Puryang Airport in Ali prefecture( with an average of above 4500m), is a possible option.

1. We usually don't recommend travelers entering Mount Kailash from Kashgar directly, because you may suffer from the serious alititude sickness because of the sudden increasing altitude from plain to the highland of 4,500 meters. It's better to enter from Lhasa, and drive to Kailash, then fly out back to Lhasa or to Kashgar.
2. The flight between Lhasa and Kailash actually doesn't depart daily, but during the high season (usually May to October) there is a flight available. It is best to save a day for your flight back to other cities of China from Lhasa, as sometimes the flight to Lhasa from Kailash is temporarily cancelled due to the harsh weather. On this occasion, the airline will arrange the accommodations and food for the clients.
3. The flight between Kailash and Kashgar was available since 2015, and runs once a week. Please contact us for the detailed flight schedule to better plan your trip.

Things to know before you go
【Accommodation】Generally, in remote area, there is no hotel which can provide travelers breakfast and room facility of good quality. In fact, only basic dorm beds are available in guesthouses and small inns at remote places. There are no private bathrooms and no water for shower. Those places are always lack of water and electricity due to the poor geography conditions.
【Drinking water】The hot water for drinking is at low temperature about 70-80 degrees centigrade and always provided by a bottle.
【Food】In some extremely remote places, tourists have to stay in tents or local monasteries, which might not be clean enough.there is also no fresh meat or vegetables in local and all the ingredients are from big cities like Lhasa and Shigatse. Therefore, the price for a meal is quite expensive. A very sample meal might cost 8 to 10 USD per person. For a breakfast, 1.5 USD for a cup of coffee and 3 USD for a cake, it is not enough for a quality breakfast, so our company may buy some bread, coffee, or milk powder from the supermarket in big cities to improve the poor breakfast.
【Travel Permit】4 permits in total are needed for a Mount Kailash tour: Tibet entry permit, Alien's travel permit, foreign affair permit, and military permit. Tibet Vista can be able to arrange all of the travel permits for your Kailash Manasavor yatra.
