Mt. Kailash is not just a peak on the map, the pilgrimage to this Himalayan wonder is a spiritual exploration. It is the abode of Lord Shiva for Hindus, home of Buddha Demchok, according to Buddhists, and the place of Nirvana for the creator of Jainism. Thousands of ardent travelers dip their bodies in the holy waters of Mansarovar and marvel at the sunset over Mt. Kailash each year. The journey that has been dubbed by many as the, “stairs to heaven,” is meant as much for dedicated pilgrims as it is for zealous trekkers ready to explore and self-actualize. God’s very own spectacle beckons only the truly deserving,

 

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by helicopter will ease the inconvenience one feels while traversing through tough terrains to access really remote regions. The harsh weather and the difficulty of trekking for long distances can take away a lot from this lifetime experience. However, Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by a helicopter from Nepalgunj safely avoids all that to offer only the best experiences to the ones interested. 

 

The trip begins as you arrive in Nepalgunj. You will be first flown to Simikot on a fixed wing aircraft and later on a chartered helicopter to Hilsa. From Hilsa, drive to Taklakot to begin your journey to holy Lake Mansarovar. Bathe in the holy lake and perform a puja or havan, if you so wish. You can also visit the hot springs nearby. 

In the course of next few days on the yatra, you will eventually reach Dolma La (4,560 m), the highest point on the Mt. Kailash trek. Waking up to a sun pouring down on Mt. Kailash is the climax of this Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Helicopter Tour. As you journey back from Zuthulphuk to Simikot and back, know that you have had an experience of a lifetime.
