How much money should I carry?

While this will depend on every individual, kindly use the following to help you plan your budget in addition to the pilgrimage package costs:

    • For the Outer Kora groups, use of personal porter and pony (around 2000 yuan each)
    • Excess baggage fees for going over the stipulated limit on international flights as well as domestic flights during the yatra
    • Evacuation expenses in case of medical emergencies or excess costs incurred due to “Acts of God” events or change in government rules
    • Tips for support staff (sherpas, cooks, porters, etc.)
    • Personal expenses
    • Shoppingexpenses

The pilgrim must ensure that they have enough Nepalese/Indian currency during their stay in Nepal and enough money in Chinese Yuan for the duration of their stay in Tibet, China.
