Kailash in Late August/Early September

What is the weather like for Kailash Kora in late august and/or Early September? I know August is still rainy season. How bad rains will be in Lhasa and on the way to Darchen? It is too cold for 3 day kora at Mt. Kailash? Or is it better in early August than early September? Looking for suggestions.

It still can be rainy in the first half of September and even in the second half of September. But you never can really tell. Maybe there won't be a lot of rain. The only thing is, the later you go the more chance on blue sky's. But last year (2013) there was still rain and clouds in the beginning of October. Is it to cold for the kora round Kailash? No, not really. But if you get wed during the kora you will become more cold than if you have dry clothes. So take rain clothes with you. An other disadvantage of rain is, that Kailash will be in the clouds and the mountain will not be visible. And that is a shame. Because seeing especially the north face of Kailash during the kora is so great!!!

better you go to Mt Kailash beginning of August. in Lhasa there won't be badly (heavy) rains as well as on the way to darchen. in beginning on august there is not too cold. weather will be clear and you can see beautiful views of Mt. Kailash from Darchen.
