BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to travel in Tibet is from May, June, July, August and September. The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing views through the Yatra. Although this Yatra can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.
GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain Trek only employs local Staff, who have knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region.
Tibet is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile in the mountain region. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do. Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain Trek employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain Trek, therefore, enforces a number of do and don’t. Please talk to your trek Guide to avoid environmental impacts.
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain Trek trips that all Pilgrim’s be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents. While here we request all the traveler’s should bring your travel insurance which can cover cancelation flight ticket, ambulance, helicopter rescue, treatment and evacuation costs. Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.
This pilgrimage’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, one day we take rest in somewhere which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.
