Best Time to Visit

A trip to Kailash Mansarovar is suitable during the early summer months of May and June because people have a belief that in starting you can get direct blessings from lord Shiva.

1. Ideal Temperature for a Trip

The min temperature of the surroundings near Kailash Mansarovar stays approx. 5 to 10 degree Celsius during the early summer time, or post monsoon in India. This makes the tourists feel great to enjoy the heat from the sun, when being near to the mountains. Since the temperature dips to the lowest of the low in winters there, people are advised not to visit there in the winter months.

For further reference there are two links mentioned below by helicopter and overland yatra both.

2. Outdoor Activities Are Possible

It always feels great to enjoy outdoor activities, like trekking (in parikrama), yoga, pooja, hawan, holy bath in lake etc. near Kailash Mansarovar, which is only possible in good weather conditions of the summer time.

3. No Obstacles to Pilgrimage

A lot of pilgrims visit Kailash Mansarovar to cleanse off their sins, and to bring good fortune in their lives. They take bath in the Lake Mansarovar around the Mount Kailash, as per their religious beliefs. To fulfill their desires without any obstacle, they prefer to plan the trip in the ideal time of summer or post monsoon months.

4. Summer Holidays of Children

You can also plan a family trip to the Kailash Mansarovar during summer holidays, which also lie in the month of June. Your children will enjoy the trip to the most, being there in the vicinity of the mountains and the beautiful Mansarovar Lake. Minimum Age is 10yrs.

5. To Enjoy Saga Dawa Festival

During the ideal time, the sacred Saga Dawa festival is also celebrated in Tibet. This festival is known amongst Tibetan monks, people and even tourists to do certain religious activities and to do good deeds such as not killing animals for meat etc. So, by visiting Kailash Mansarovar during the ideal time, you can also get to enjoy this festival too.

Travel Advice for the Tourists and Pilgrims

The MIN temperature of Kailash Mansarovar lies approx. 4 to 15 w degree Celsius, and may even fall up to -2 degree Celsius around snowy trails. So, you are advised to carry woolen clothing with you, to stay healthy and avoid falling sick during the trip. It may become hard for you to find a good doctor in the mountainous terrains. So, be careful about this aspect of the trip as well.

When to Make Bookings for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

Other than the time you plan to visit Kailash Mansarovar, the time you make bookings for the trip is also important. Ideally, it is best to book your tour at least two – three months prior to the date of the departure you plan. This is because thousands of Indian pilgrims visit there during that time, which may also cause price hike in the cost of accommodation in the best hotels there.

So, whether you wish to visit Kailash Mansarovar for a family trip, alone or for pilgrimage, you should keep in mind the best time to visit there, as detailed above. This will help you avoid feeling like the trip tests your physical endurance and mental health.
