Trip Overview

Kailash Heli-tour is a superb sky flight to Mt. Kailash as we view some fantastic mountain landscapes in Nepal’s unique western parts before we get into Tibet. On landing in Kathmandu we use a day relaxing and preparing for the trip before our flight to Nepalgunj, a far out town in the western Terai plains of Nepal the following day. This is a rewarding religious tour around the mid-hills of the holy Mt. Kailash on our Kailash Yatra by helicopter with a team of Leaf Holiday treks who will enlighten your pilgrimage with peace and bring you close to the gods. You will feel blissful happiness, free of your sins and closer to the Lord through this thrilling Heli-tour. On our Kailash journey, a bit via the skies, we also travel along olden pilgrimage roads and trade links, as we culminate on the divine Mt. Kailash in Tibet. Next, we circum ambulate Mt. Kailash and tour Manasarovar Lake, both of which hold great cultural and religious importance.

This Heli tour is specially organised for the physically challenged or senior citizens who want to pay a visit to the Hindu deity Lord Shiva but are not able enough to walk through the challenging and rough trails of Kailash. Kailash Manasarovar Helicopter Tour is aptly known to be a luxury air tour in Tibet that starts from the ancient capital of Nepal itself, Kathmandu. We take the route to Simikot via Nepalgunj from above the highlands of the country on a regular flight, where the views amaze you all the way. on reaching Simikot, we take a private helicopter flight to the pretty town of Hilsa, enjoying the beauty of mother nature beneath us. The overland cruise to Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar from here is flat and wonderfully gentle. Accompanied by a professional crew to instruct us, we climb further up to Darchen and from here we take up a 3 days spiritually challenging Parikrama trek around Mt. Kailash (also known as Kora), allowing the spiritual emotions to soak in.

After completing the Koras, we again begin our overland journey from our Kora ending point to Manasarovar lake where we will collect holy Jal/water and commence our drive back to Taklakot and then to Hilsa from where we board our helicopter ride back to Simikot and then to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj on a regular flight.

We are happy to see you all blessed after a sacred holy tour of Mt. Kailash and we will always be ready and happy to serve our pilgrim guests from the great country of India in the years ahead. We wish you all a safe journey home !
