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
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.
