What are the requirements for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra?

Holy Mount Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is considered one of the toughest trekking and we should prepare ourselves for the yatra with the required documents, and other things like Insurance, Physical Fitness, etc.


Before you start your journey, you should hold these documents and we strongly advise you to have a document bag to properly manage all the documents.

  • Passport with some photocopies and passport-sized photographs
  • If you hold any Identity cards, you need to bring those too.
  • A diary to record the required addresses or contacts. Plus, you can note down things that you find worth. Also, bring the pen with some refills.
  • Maps/Charts and some books to read during your spare time.
  • Travel cheques, credit cards, and Currency.
  • Airline/Railway tickets/vouchers.
  • Any other document for personal purposes.


As this yatra is going to be the most adventurous and spiritual, you need to be careful about your fitness, mentally or physically. Also, you have to walk the difficult trails to do the Parikrama, so we advise you to have some one-day hike or a regular walk and do yoga, and breathing exercises months before you set off for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.

So, before you start the Yatra, Consultation with the doctor and proper examination of yourself should be done.


You should have medical insurance including the emergency evacuation feature in the insurance package for this yatra.
