The remote region of Tibet, which is a restricted area, is where Kailash Mansarovar is located. Instead of being awarded to a single person, the Chinese visa is given to groups. The group visa is paper-based and is intended specifically for the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra for Nepali. This visa is necessary for everyone to enter China. Along with this, a Chinese government-issued Tibet Travel Permit is also necessary.

It is mandatory to have a passport if you are planning to visit the Kailash in Tibet. All the visa-obtaining and documentation processes will be done by us during the time of travel.

Health and Fitness

Kailash, the harsh climate and hostile terrain in the high-altitude area where Mansarovar is located make it unsuitable for human habitation. You must journey across difficult terrain to get to the base of Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake, which is not something that everyone can do. To accomplish so, you must be in decent physical condition. To get your body ready for the hike to Mount Kailash, it is advised that you engage in certain physical activities before setting off on your adventure. You can do some fundamental yogas and pranayamas, such as Anulom Vilom, and Kapal-Bharti, as you get ready for your yatra. By engaging in these activities, you increase your body's ability to function well under adverse weather circumstances.

Altitude Sickness in Kailash Mansarovar

Mansarovar Lake is situated at 4,590 meters above sea level, and Mount Kailash Parikrama is situated at 4,500 meters above sea level. People frequently experience Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) at such a high altitude. The impact of AMS differs from person to person, though, since some people experience a very powerful impact while others experience a minimal or insignificant one. Before going on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra for Nepali, it's vital to practice some yoga and engage in some physical activity because someone physically fit is less likely to have AMS. Breathlessness, irregular sleeping patterns, and pain are some signs of altitude sickness.
