02: country tour Nepal and Lhasa combined Kailash Darshan EX Kathamndu

This route has advantage where 2 countries can be covered Nepal Kathmandu and Lhasa sightseeing and you travel by road via Lhasa to Kailash mansarovar. The route can be completed in 15 days time with both the Parikramas . Ex Kathmandu it is relatively expensive than other route.
Premium /VIP Route Chartered route Ex Lucknow /Nepalganj 5-6 days
Best time to go: May- September (dependent of Weather)
This route require minimum 5 pilgrims ex Nepalganj and quite customerized and expensive route. With this route Kailash & Mansarovar glimpse and holy dip in the lake can be observed. Via Helicopter route with limited duration you do not have Kailash Parikrama.
Step 2 : Select Your Departure Date (Full Moon Or Other Dates)
Selecting a departure date is very important according to the kind of an experience you want to have. Route to Kailash is difficult to do during winter time so we do not conduct Kailash Mansarovar yatra b/w Novemener to April.
One of the popular options for date selection is the full moon departure schedule.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Full Moon Departure
Festivals fall on full moon like Raksha Bandhan , Guru Purnima and Saga Dawa etc.
Full-Moon in Mansarovar: Pilgrims prefer doing Puja during the Full Moon (Purnima)
Scenic & beautiful view of full moon over Mount Kailash
Auspicious Parikrama / Kora during Full-moon
There are limited flights and when there are more pilgrims during full moon than there is caos and if something goes wrong with the weather than we have no choice but to stay at a particular location unless things are clear and systematic for us. This may lead to vulnerable complications and you miss full moon visit as well
We usually prepare 2 dates for Kailash Mansarovar in order to combat the rush where one can observe the Kailash on full moon while coming back (group one) and another while going (group two).
OVERLAND route has more advantage here since the route is less prone to the weather condition than the helicopter route.
