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 tour.

Know Before you Go

Road Condition of Kailash

Road Condition

The road along the whole way is well paved, except that there is a stretch of gravel road around the Lake Manasarova. At Tibet Vista, we only use the good-condition vehicle, usually within 3 years, and Tibetan local experienced driver for our clients. You can totally trust them, relaxingly sit back and enjoy the exciting adventure.

High Altitude

Suffering from the high altitude sickness is the most concerned issue of a Kailash tour. Based on our over 10 years' experience in Tibet tourism, there is no need to worry too much about it. High altitude sickness is the very normal reaction when entering the highland, usually, you will feel a little bit headache, sleepness, chest distress. However, since our Kailash Manasavor yatra always starts with at least 4 days in Lhasa, which will help you get acclimatized to the high altitude. It is helpful to drink more hot water and have some fruit. Please remember to not have shower every day and do not take the risk of washing your hair or body with snow or stream. Otherwise, catching cold would be extremely dangerous at high altitude.

Weather Condition & Best Time to Go

It is stated that not to visit the Mount Kailash is not really visit Tibet and also not a real explorer. Mount Kailsh is the Holy Land of devotees, the paradise of the explorers, the world of the mountaineers and the dream place of the travelers.

Harsh weather, long journey and a vast territory with a sparse population come to the mind when mentioning to Kailsh Manasarovar Yatra. However, as long as you travel at the best time of the year, the journey is much easier than you imagined.

Best Time to Visit

The best time for Kailash Manasarovar pilgrimage is from May to October of every year, with the average temprature of 19℃, reaching up to 25℃ in day time, and lowering below to zero in night, with a large temperature difference between day and night. The area hardly rains, with few annual rainfall, though July and August are the seasons of rains (it's easy to see a rainbow arching across the sky). For the rest of time, you will enjoy the blue sky, white cloud, widely different plants, and May is the best time to see the most beautiful kelsang flowers.
