You can carry any type of luggage bag till Nepalganj (in Helicopter Kailash Yatra) and Kathmandu (in Bus Kailash Yatra), where you will be given good quality duffle bag and backpack by Trip To Temples (u/o Divine Mantra Pvt Ltd). Each bag will have a unique number for identification. You will have to shift your essential items in the bag provided for the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.
