About Mount Kailash Tour High Altitude

Suffering from the high altitude sickness is the most concerned issue of a Kailash tour. Based on our over 20 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.

Most Common Questions about Mount Kailash Tours

  • 1. Where is Mt.Kailash and how to get there?

    Mount Kailash, situated in the far west of Ngari, Tibet, is approximately 1500 kilometers from Lhasa and 700 kilometers from Gyirong port at the Sino-Nepal border. If traveling from Kathmandu to Mount Kailash, the journey extends to around 820 kilometers.

    You can get to Mount Kailash from Lhasa by land, which takes around 13 to 16 days with sightseeing en route and a night stay at the Everest Base Camp. Alternatively, you can travel to Mount Kailash from Kathmandu via the Gyirong border. It generally takes 10 days by land.

    The nearest airport to Mount Kailash is Ngari Gunsa Airport, offering flights from Lhasa, Kashgar, Urumqi, Chengdu, and Xian. Opting for a quicker route, you can fly from Lhasa to Ngari Gunsa Airport (within 3 hours) and then drive the remaining 250 kilometers to Mount Kailash in about 5 hours. Due to limited flight schedules, plan accordingly.

  • 2. Can You arrange Mount Kailash tours for Indian pilgrims?

    If you're an Indian pilgrim looking to visit the Mount Kailash area with an Indian passport, the pilgrimage tours are exclusively arranged through the Pilgrim Center.

    For Indian citizens with other passports, we're here to assist you in planning your Mount Kailash trip. Feel free to contact us, and we'll be delighted to help with all your travel requirements, making sure your Mount Kailash tour is both meaningful and unforgettable.

  • 3. Road Condition of the Mt.Kailash and Lake Manasarova

    TThe road condition of western Tibet has been greatly improved in recent years. Most of the roads from Lhasa to Mount Kailash are well paved, except for a gravel stretch near Lake Manasarovar.

    At Tibet Vista, we ensure a comfortable journey by providing well-maintained vehicles and experienced local Tibetan drivers. Sit back, relax, and savor the excitement of your adventure to this sacred mountain.

  • 4. High Altitude of the Mt.Kailash and Lake Manasarova

    Mount Kailash proudly stands at an elevation of 6638 meters, while Lake Manasarovar sits gracefully at 4590 meters above sea level.

    The average altitude of the Mount Kailash trek is above 4500 meters, during which you will cross the Dromala Pass (5630 meters) - the highest point along the trekking route.

    Since you will trek for at least 4 days for such a high altitude, you may face the challenge of altitude sickness, often experiencing symptoms like headaches, sleeplessness, and chest distress.

    To help you adjust to the high altitude of the Tibetan Plateau, our Kailash Manasarovar Yatra starts with at least 3 days in Lhasa. As you go west to Shigatse and Everest, your body gets used to the increasing altitude.

    To feel better at high altitudes, drink lots of hot water, eat fruits, and cut back on daily showers. Don't risk washing with snow or stream water—it's super risky in the cold at these heights.

  • 5. Best Time to Visit the Mt.Kailash and Lake Manasarovar

    The best time for the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra is from April to October each year, featuring an average temperature of 9.5°C. Daytime temperatures typically range from 10-15°C, while nighttime temperatures can drop below freezing, resulting in a substantial temperature difference between day and night.

    The Mount Kailash region experiences minimal rainfall, though July and August are the rainy seasons, often accompanied by the appearance of rainbows.

    During the remaining months, expect clear blue skies, white clouds, diverse vegetation, and May stands out as the best time to witness the breathtaking beauty of Kelsang flowers.

  • 6. Accommodation of the Kailash Manasarovar Tour/Yatra

    The accommodation conditions at Mount Kailash are quite basic - almost basic dorm beds in guesthouses and small inns. Generally, guesthouse rooms along the Kora route can accommodate 3 to 4 people, with shared toilets available on each floor.

    It’s worth noting that private bathrooms or bathing facilities are not accessible during the Kailash kora. To ensure basic cleanliness, it's recommended to bring wet wipes along.

  • 7. Drinking Water along the Kailash Manasarovar Tour/Yatra

    During the Kailash kora, there are tent tea houses that provide hot drinks such as Tibetan butter tea, sweet tea, and bottled water for both tourists and pilgrims. Additionally, guesthouses along the trail offer boiled water for guests. You can bring your personal bottles to fill with drinking water at these points or carry some bottled water. It's important to note that drinking water directly from taps or rivers is not recommended.

  • 8. Food along the Kailash Manasarovar Tour/Yatra

    During the Kailash Manasarovar Yatra, dining options remain quite basic, with tent tea houses and monastery guesthouses offering simple fare such as instant noodles and egg-fried rice. As fresh meat and vegetables are scarce in the local area, and all ingredients are sourced from larger cities like Lhasa and Shigatse, the cost of a meal is relatively higher compared to other cities.

    To maintain your energy levels during the journey, it's recommended to bring along some chocolate or energy bars for the hike.

  • 9. Travel Permit of Kailash Manasarovar Tour/Yatra

    The first necessary travel document is the Chinese Visa. Once you have your Chinese and a valid passport, you can proceed to apply for the Tibet Travel Permit.

    The Tibet Travel Permit is required for entering the Tibet Autonomous Region. Without the Tibet permit, you can not board a flight or train to Tibet.

    Since Mount Kailash is situated in the remote western part of the Tibet Autonomous Region, additional travel documents are necessary for your visit, such as the Alien’s Travel Permit and the Military Permit.

    All the required documents for your Mount Kailash visit (excluding the Chinese Visa) are part of our Mount Kailash tour packages. We ensure a seamless and worry-free Mount Kailash experience for you with a 100% guaranteed Tibet Travel Permit.
