  • Q1. Which is the shortest and Luxuries Kailash Yatra?

    We often get questions, why VVIP package when there are other alternatives, Yolo Hike wants to bring you with the package from mediate to High-End facility which brings the VVIP package for those travelers who want to conquer their Kailash Yatra with premium service ever available, the package is designed by one of the best Tour coordinators with teams and guide along with high research and self-visit on Kailash Yatra, concluding that we tested the package in a huge market of Tourism bringing us with great review and happy clients.

  • The three-day Kailash Parikrama is the most difficult part of the Mount Kailash Tour. Darchen is the starting point for the 52-kilometer trip (4,560m). You pass through Lha-Chu Valley, Lham-Chu Valley, Dzong-Chu Valley, and Darchen. You would spend one night in Dirapuk Monastery and the next in Zuthulpuk Monastery during the Kailash Kora. The Kora around Kailash Mountain has an average altitude of roughly 5,000 meters, and the average daily walk is about 7 to 8 hours. Every pilgrim who travels to Kailash to complete the Kailash Kora walks clockwise around the Kailash Mountain, passing via the highest pass, Dolma La. (5645m).

  • Tibet's official currency is the Yuan, but other currencies such as the US dollar, Euro, and British pound are also accepted. However, before traveling to Tibet, we recommend exchanging your money for Yuan. If you're coming in through Kathmandu, change your money at any of the city's money exchanges. You can also exchange money or use ATMs in Lhasa if you arrive from mainland China. Because finding ATMs or banks in rural areas of Tibet is difficult, it is recommended that you bring CASH with you to cover all of your expenses. Please consult your travel agency to determine how much you should carry for the trip, as it is dependent on your trip package.

  • The optimum time to visit Mount Kailash is from April until the end of September, while the greatest time to tour central Tibet is from November to December. From early November to early April, extreme weather changes make travel to Everest Base Camp problematic; also, throughout the winter season, roads in eastern Tibet, particularly around Mt Kailash and western Tibet, may be closed owing to heavy snowfall.

  • There are no direct flights from India to Lhasa; all planes must connect via Kathmandu or a Chinese airport. Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu is the only airport outside of China that propositions direct flights to Lhasa. Which includes Nepal to Lhasa trip.
