General Information about Kailash

Temperature and Weather

From May through September in Tibet are generally dry and sunny, with more precipitation in August. Daytime temperatures can be as high as 72 °F with the average daily temperature of 50 °F. However, the sun is much more intense at higher altitudes making it feel much hotter. At this time of year there is also an incredible drop in temperature from early afternoon to evening. The temperature at night will drop as low as 14 °F to 32°F at altitudes of 16,404 feet, which is our highest camp during the Parikrama.

Health Considerations

All participants must provide a medical clearance form completed by their doctor confirming that they are fit to undertake this Yatra. Please note you will be traveling in remote areas at high altitude up to 19,500 feet. More details on Medical Form Page.


Please start to get in shape now! A good 45 minute walk every day, combined with light jogging, stretching and/or regular exercise will get you into the right shape. Concentrate on your heart and legs. Yoga breathing exercises also help to promote lung expansion which will allow your body to acclimatize faster. Porters will be carrying the bulk of your equipment. However, it is recommended that you are fit enough to carry some of your own snacks, water, camera, light weight rain gear, etc.


Pack clothing for both extremes of climate and temperature. While driving to Mt. Kailash, it will be warm inside the vehicle and light clothing will be required. However, as soon as you step out of the vehicle warm clothing will be required to keep off the cold wind of the Tibetan Plateau. Evening will be generally cold and warm clothing will be required. List of items to bring is provided.
