sunny, with precipitation in July and August Day time temperature can be as high as 20 degrees
centigrade intimate. The average daily temperature will be 10 degrees centigrade, however the

All participants must provide health certificate given by a reputed doctor confirming

your medicine & first aid kit.
These golden rule is to deliberately slow down all activities
Rest, Relax - Do not exert; don’t be excited, Reduce talking, Walk slowly - adopt one third of
your normal speed & space.
Keep your load light, Walk 15 minutes and rest for five minutes, Lightweight warm clothing's
and boots / ked would help reducing strain and burden, Never let yourself into boredom -
boredom inducts fatigue, mental abrasions and exhaustion.
(Chant a prayer or visualize everything around to suit your pleasant thoughts. Or put on the
earphones and listen to your favorite music, bhajans, chanting etc. Scan the scenario with
binoculars. Resort to photography.) Do not exercise, Breathe slowly (never fast), Whenever you
feel uncomfortable, just stop: rest and relax, Ignore the sudden outbursts of fellow pilgrims and
avoid arguments, Observe silence with a smile, Remember - never go too high too fast, Avoid
smoking and alcohol - drugs or intoxicants, Consume plenty of liquids; never proceed with an
Expedition experts advise that beyond 3500 meters ascent or climbing must be restricted to
300 to 400 meters at a stretch. Most people, however they say would experience minimum
symptoms, if given longer time to ascend. This must be borne in mind during Parikrama around
Kailash.Be careful not to catch a cold. It is better to be over-clothed than under protected.
Enroute, avoid taking a bath or drinking water from lakes, streams or rivers as your system is
not conditioned for this. Since the dry cold wind tends to make the nose dry (bleeding
sometime) keep your nose smooth by applying Vaseline. Keep your feet dry - never let it get
wet. Keep your boots / ked inside tents to keep them dry. Wearing cotton and wool socks in
combination would be the best. Face, feet and hands must be well protected.
Consult your DOCTOR to assess the state of your health to function safely within your
limitations. Learn the DO’S and the Dont’s from his advice. In addition to the personal
prescriptions by your physician, a First Aid Kit is essential for the travel. Request your Doctor to

consumption at high altitude for energy). Multi-vitamin and Vitamin C tablets are required for
daily consumption as a routine. It is preferable to avoid shaving as any cut or bruise may not
heal quickly and may irritate with nagging discomfort.
Never rush into things. Walk slowly and firmly. Guard yourself from slipping or falling to
prevent fractures, sprains and muscle pulls. The uneven ground, steep slopes and slushy banks
are full of potholes. Do not combine walking and sight seeing together. Inspect your track in
