What Will Be The Charges For Children?

How Much Does A Child's Trip to Kailash Mansarovar Cost?

What Will Be The Charges For Children?

One common fact that the world knows about Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is that thousands of pilgrims from all over the world visit this Holy place. But under these positive facts, a fact that gets shadowed is that thousands or even more people fail to fulfill their dream of undertaking Kailash Yatra because they cannot afford this trip. Indeed, going for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is an expensive affair, irrespective of which tour operator or travel agent you choose. Next in line of complexities for people, is the age and health guidelines an individual should meet to become eligible for Kailash Yatra. For those who plan to take their family members, including children with them for the Kailash Yatra, complexity increases to some extent. 

To know the exact details of what the charges of taking your children with you will be, you need to ask your travel agent about the same. Since he will be the one who makes all arrangements for hundreds of pilgrims every year, he knows well about what it takes to take your child with you for the Kailash Yatra. If you consider the age of an individual who is allowed to undertake Kailash Yatra, it is eighteen to seventy years of age, which has been wisely defined by the government authorities but as of private agencies, the children below the age of 18 and above 10 can also go via Nepal route..

Kailash Yatra Expense for a Child

If you see it from the perspective of a travel agent who makes bookings and all arrangements for Kailash Yatra, a child of any age is nearly the same as an adult individual. He will need accommodation along with his parents or guardians during the journey, food just like others and even special consideration from the tour operator in some situations. In that sense, a travel agent is right when we ask for the complete package amount per person for even a child. The rest depends on the specific agent you choose to make bookings, and his own rates per person. 

Can a Child of Less Than 10 Years Go For Kailash Yatra?

If you look at the restriction and age related guidelines, a child of the age less than ten years is not allowed to do Kailash Yatra. But sometimes, parents insist the agents or even the officials to allow their child to do the Yatra. In those situations, the parents are clearly told that they can take their child for the journey to Mount Kailash, but at their own risk. In case of any casualty, no authority will be held responsible. 

Thus, it is advisable to parents not to insist on taking your children who are under the age of ten years for the Yatra along with you. Instead, they should wait for their child to grow older than eighteen years, to become eligible for Kailash Yatra.

Relation of Kailash Yatra Eligibility to a Child’s Health

The reason why a young child who is less than ten years of age is not eligible for Kailash Yatra is related to the child’s health more importantly. Young children are mostly dependent on their parents or elders to do things. They are not considered wise enough to take decisions for themselves. Neither, their physical health is such that they can undertake high altitude trekking, which is a part of the journey to Mount Kailash. Even after knowing this fact, some parents want to risk the life of their children, and take their for Kailash Yatra. Uncertainty can happen to just anyone, and at any point of time.

If you see it in another way, if parents would take their small child to Kailash Yatra with them, it would definitely create complexities for them during the course of the Yatra. Their focus will be more towards taking care of their child, rather to enjoy the visit to Kailash Mansarovar and experiencing an impressive view of the surroundings. The mere decision of taking a small child with them for the Yatra can prevent them from making memories they would cherish for the rest of their lives. 

Keeping that in mind, all the parents and guardians of young children of age less than ten or around are advised to go for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra without their children. 

One Way to Visit Kailash Mansarovar with Your Child

Some people make religious vows or wish to undertake Kailash Yatra with their children. This just does not mean that they should risk the lives of their children, when they are not of the right age to bear the harsh climate during the course of Mount Kailash. 

If you wish to do the same, you are advised to wait for the right time, till your child crosses the age of ten/eighteen. Even at that time, you will most likely fall under the age of seventy and thus, will be eligible to do Kailash Yatra with your children. Whether alone or with your family members, it is very important to keep in mind all safety concerns, while doing Kailash Yatra.
