The Best Time to Visit Mt. Kailash

The best time to visit Mt. Kailash is outside the rainy season in June, July and August, when roads are muddy and mountains are shrouded by mist and fog. Every other season has its benefits, from the fewer crowds of winter, to the warm and mild days of spring and colorful sceneries of autumn. Among the four seasons, the best time & season to visit Mt. Kailash is spring and autumn (Feb – May and late Sep – Nov), which are the main trekking months with fairly stable weather conditions and good visibility.

Late February to early May are popular months for trekking, with the weather warmer and flowers in bloom on the side of the road. Longer days with more sunlight coincide warming temperatures, less precipitation and good visibility, all of which provides tourists with great chances for trekking. Besides, another great time for visiting Mt. Kailash is from October to Early November, when the sky is clear, air is fresh and temperatures are comfortable. The Mt. Kailash has been washed clean by the monsoon rains, and looks particularly lush and verdant.
 
In addition to a good weather condition, the festival is also a factor that attract tourists to visit Mt. Kailash. Every year from May to June, pilgrims from all over Tibet and Asia come to Tibet to celebrate Saga Dawa festival, which is one of the most solemn and important religious festivals in Tibet. On that day, tourists can join the pilgrims to erase their sin of a lifetime by taking the 3-days trek around holy Mt. Kailash.

1. From April to October, warm clothes are always advised because snowy weather is maybe just around the next pass especially when trek over the arduous Drolma-la Pass at the height of 5640 meters. Down coat must be used in April, May, September and October.

2. You’ d better not visit it from the 3rd week of October till the beginning of April, cause the weather is really cold and the trails might be blocked by snow.

3. If you’re going to a Mt Kailash tour in June and September, better book your tour at least 1 month in advance, because the very large Indian pilgrims groups always book out the entire hotels on their way to Mt Kailash.

Hello!

We're two friends from Italy and we’re planning our summer vacation. We're thinking to get to Lhasa approximately on the 8th or 9th of August and to stay for a week. We would like to know which is your best (cheapest) offer (private or group tour) considering that we don’t have a big budget, with details about what’s included and what’s not.

Thank you so much!!!

Dear Mr. Ma***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. I wonder whether you can come to Tibet on 5th Aug, as we have 8days group tour on this date, so I can provide you some discount for the tour. If you want the tour is cheaper, then better for you to join in a group tour, private tour cannot be cheap in Aug as it is the peak season, and everything in its highest cost. And our group size is from 4 to 14 people. Or if you insist the tour on 8th or 9th Aug we can collect people based on that too, but cannot guarantee it will be a group as at least 4 people. Looking forward to your idea about it. Best regards.

Dear Mr. Jo***,
Greetings from Helen at Budgettibettour. From your inquiry, I see that you are interested in both Everest Base Camp and Namtso Lake, here we recommend one 10 days Tibet Mt. Everest plus Namtso Lake group tour to you, and we currently have one departure date on 28th of June, which is suitable for your itinerary. As you enter Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu, which takes at least three working days. If you arrive in Kathmandu on 23rd June, you can start to apply for visa on 24th June, and you'll get visa on 26th or 27th, then flying from Kathmandu to Lhasa and join tour starting on 28th June. Firstly, we will apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passports. Next, we will send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passports. Then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for visa for you. Finally, pick up your passport and Chinese Group Visa from our partner and fly to Lhasa. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Warm regards.
