Amongst our variation of heli tours, one of our most renowned is the Mount Kailash yatra. Mount Kailash, the abode of Lord Shiva and a place of eternal bliss, is the most sacred peak for the Hindus. Located in the far west corner of Tibet, the 6700-meter high Mount Kailash is regarded by the Tibetans as the manifestation of Mount Meru, where founder of Bon religion, Tonpa Shenrab, is believed to have descended from heaven; Buddhists as the abode of Samvara and by the Jains as a sacred site where their prophet, Rishaba, attained spiritual enlightenment.

Parikrama around Mount Kailash over a 5630 meter Drolma La (pass) is said to erase the sins of a lifetime. Equally holy is the Manasarovar Lake. Bathing in the sacred Lake Manasarovar is considered an essential part of the entire pilgrimage. The lake is set on the Tibetan plateau bordered by the majestic Gurla Mandata. Hence collectively called the Kailash mansarovar tour or Kailash mansarovar yatra. Your Kailash Yatra begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and then to Simikot, followed by a heli tour to Nepal-Tibet Border. A 4WD Land cruiser or tourist coach then takes you to Lake Manasarovar, where your spiritual journey begins.
