Mt, Kailash is the mountain abode of Lord Shiva and the place of eternal pleasure for Hindus around the world. Kailash Mansarovar helicopter tour is a significant program for those who have very short time and like to complete this Yatra however easily. This tour is started from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and Simikot by regular scheduled flight and flies to Hilsa by Helicopter. From Hilsa picked up by Land cruiser and drop at the border. Then we proceed to Mansarovar and Kailash Parikarma. Because of the maximum use of air service an altitude sickness problem can be seen comparatively more than the overland tour. Mt. Kailash (6700 M) lay in the west corner of Tibet and is locally known as Mt. Meru. It is believed that the founder of the Bon religion, Tonpa Shenrab has moved down from Heaven in this Mountain Meru. Tantric Buddhists also believe that Mount Kailash is the home of the Buddha Demchok who represents supreme bliss. In Jainism, Kailash is also known as Meru Parvat or Sumeru. Ashtapada, the mountain next to Mt. Kailash is the site where the first Jain, Rishabhadev attained spiritual liberation.

                      Useful Info

                      Point to Remember during Kailash Mansarovar Yatra By Helicopter

                      1. Accommodation in Tibet will be provided in a dormitory room OR in a double-bedded room (possibility only in Taklakot) depending on places & availability. We provide an attached bathroom only in Taklakot but the bathroom has no hot shower.
                      2. During the Parikrama (Kora), we bring Yaks & Yak men to carry your luggage, food & equipment. The IPSC (Indian Pilgrimage Service Center) will provide Yaks for us. The ratio of Yak is two pilgrims = one Yak. If you require extra Yak to carry your luggage, you have to inform us at least 2 days in advance. The price depends on the flow of tourists. The more demand, the higher cost.
                      3. 1 Yak handler will be provided for every 3 yaks.
                      4. Depending on weather conditions and group size, we may provide fixed-wing aircraft between Nepalgunj and Simikot but between Simikot and Hilsa, there is no alternative other than Helicopter.
                      5. We must land at Simikot for going through the immigration formalities of the Nepal government while going and coming back, both times.
                      6. During the Parikrama (circumambulation) we prefer to provide the accommodation in Guesthouse. But the number of Guesthouses is limited. If the guesthouses are fully occupied, we provide camping accommodation. There is an alternative way other than sleeping in the Tent.
                      7. On your request, we can arrange horses for riding on Parikrama (circumambulation), but you should book & confirm this at least 2 days in advance. The price of Horses depends on the time and the flow of tourists in the region. The higher demand, the bigger price. You can't ride the Horse for the entire journey because the trail on the second day is quite rough and the Horse needs a break as well.
                      8. The weather condition in the mountain (Simikot and Hilsa area) plays a vital role in this journey. So, due to the weather fact, the trip might be delayed to depart by one or two days in the beginning. Due to weather conditions sometimes you may not be able to make your flight at your scheduled time. So we recommend you keep one day additional while returning and please make sure your ticket is flexible to change your date.
