The China-Nepal border at Gyirong Port opens from 10AM to 5 PM, considering the road condition from Kathmandu to the border is not that good and takes long time, so we advise you to depart Kathmandu one day earlier to arrive at the border just in case some unexpected situation may happen on the way, this way can also ensure you to have sufficient time to cross the border next day even there might be some special case on the way the day before. For example, you can leave your hotel in Kathmandu around 10 AM after breakfast, and then it will be around 5 PM when you are about to reach border, since Chinese time is 2.15 hours ahead of Nepalese time, so the Chinese border would have been closed already even it’s just 5 PM based on Nepalese time.
You and your driver can stay at a small town called Syabrubesi in Nepal and stay overnight there, this town is about half an hour driving to the Chinese border. So next morning, you have enough time to reach the border and check out from the Nepal part then check in China Tibet side.

I want to visit in Oct 2020 and do the Mt Kailash tour. I want to bring two of my grandchildren - aged 8 and 10 years old. Do you think it is possible?
Dear Mr. Ul***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. I think it will be no problem for you to bring your grandchildren to do the trekking, as we had clients before who took child less than 4 years old did it, and they hired porter to carry him for some part. If you like, you can hire a horse and horse man to carry them to save the energy there. And also I recommend you to arrive in Lhasa1-2days earlier to make the children adjust the high place better if you have enough time. And I will send you the tour details, please check it by email. Best regards.
