Kailash Mansarovar Tour by Helicopter for NRI and foreigners is designed for foreign travelers to manage visa timing and who want to see Mt. Kailash and Lake Manasarovar through Nepal alone. Mount Kailash is said to be the location of the world's spiritual center. Lake Manasarovar, like Mt. Kailash, is another holy site that attracts pilgrims of all faiths, and traveling by helicopter will be easy access for travelers from a long way.

Mt. Kailash, with its perfect peaks, and Lake Manasarovar, a beautiful lake in the Tibetan mountains. We call the lake the Lake of Consciousness because the word manas means mind and Sarovar means holy lake. The holy lake, which has an 88-kilometer diameter, is immensely captivating, especially on full moon days. In addition, the site is a holy center for Hinduism, Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, the pre-Buddhist animistic religion, and the Jain faith in Nepal. Indulging in a bath

Mt Kailash Helicopter Tour access is via Simikot, which drops you off at Hilsa's borderland and then takes you on an overland excursion to Mansarovar Lake's shore. From Mansarovar Lake, we continue our holy pilgrimage by hiking the KORA of Mt Kailash, which takes three days. After the Kora tour, we rejoin the group for an overland journey down to the border, where we will catch a helicopter flight back to Simikot and catch a flight to Kathmandu.
