Mount Kailash is a very popular holy mountain in Tibet and is also known as Tise, Kailash, or Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the snow). Mount Kailash is sacred to Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and Bonpos as the center of the physical and metaphysical universe. For Hindus, Kailash Mountain is the residence of Lord Shiva. For Buddhists, it is a terrestrial projection of the cosmic mandala of the Dyani Buddhas and Boddhisattvas.

Travel insurance for each itinerary of our company is a prerequisite for booking vacations.

You should understand that you will bear the value of the evacuation and return procedures, and that is your responsibility to pay for the removal or medical treatment.

Being at an altitude can be a challenge for some. All of our trips are planned with a high level of awareness about AMS (acute mountain sickness). Going up to fast can seriously need medical conditions. We understand that for a safe walk, it is necessary to leave enough time for acclimatization. Therefore, a sensible plan is required to reduce the risk of AMS. However, be aware that some visitors are more vulnerable than others.
Physical condition and experience requirements
The trip lasts a few days at high altitude; some time needs a few more hours. The hike is not challenging. However, being at an elevation can be challenging. Therefore, we highly recommend staying physically healthy. We recommend that you consult your doctor and take the necessary advice and take medications to travel to extreme heights before going on vacation.
Important information about the Tibet tour
Above all, all travelers traveling in Tibet are asked to point out that Tibet is isolated from the impressive mountains of the Himalayas, remains one of the most fascinating but least developed parts of the world. Although the tourist facilities are updated, they remain pure and limited in scope. Therefore, visitors are asked not to have high expectations of the facilities in Tibet. However, we will do our best to make your trip as pleasant as possible.
The road between Tibet and Nepal is not up to date either; it is rough, bumpy, and winding. Especially during the monsoons (June-August), it can be temporarily hampered by landslides and erosion. Therefore, some sportswear and sports shoes are highly recommended to make it easier for travelers to walk on the landslides.
Reservation and visa procedures:
You should contact us at least two weeks before with a fixed reservation with full payment along with full passport details. We organize the China / Tibet visa from Kathmandu. The visa procedure takes three full working days if you are available in Kathmandu.
Fifty percent of the tour cost will be charged as a cancellation fee if you cancel the tour within seven days before the start of the journey. After that, there is no refund in any reason such as no show, late arrival or any other
We will always do our best to make your trip pleasant and enjoyable, however, since all tours through Tibet are carried out exclusively by the Tibet Tourism Authority or its representatives. We are not responsible for changes or cancellations of programs due to unavoidable circumstances such as road closures, floods, snow, riots, Flight cancellations, late arrival, etc. In the event of illness or accident, the customer bears all additional costs. It is, therefore, advisable that customers have full insurance against the risk of medical and personal disasters. Cancellation insurance is also the most recommended in your country of origin.
For the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, one must be in good physical and mental health. It is recommended that you get a medical examination before planning this religious trip. People with back pain can have problems during a bumpy ride. People with asthma or dust allergies are strongly advised to wear a mask on the dusty street.
by Shurbir Patel, Mumbai, India
I was fortunate enough to participate in the Kailash Manasarovar tour in May 2018, arranged by Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd in Kathmandu. Mr. Kishor and his team went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience. From the first day of the trip, we witnessed their unwavering enthusiasm with which they made this journey an unforgettable experience for all of us. The warm welcome at the airport, the excellent arrangement at the Temple of Lord Pashupatinath, and the visits to other places were just a preview of what we would expect to see.
During the trip, the entire team, consisting of hard-working people, took care of our safety and comfort. Food and accommodation were well organized, and we felt "at home." The entire service was excellent and successful.
You will want to go back again and again, as I plan to do this year. It is heaven, and there, our soul finds peace. Even, this is one of the most difficult tour, they made it possible with their excellent staff. Good food, always smiling staff, ready to help the members of the trip, and most importantly, the best solidarity attitude. With such excellent service, any tedious task becomes easy. The journey is challenging because there is very little oxygen at this level, but when you are with Kishor’s team, there are no problems.
I would recommend all those interested in experiencing a memorable Kailash Yatra to use their services.
