Kailash-Mansarovar Pilgrimage by Helicopter 2023

Kailash Mansarovar Pilgrimage by helicopter is a specially crafted itinerary for those who would like to have a wonderful Darshan of Kailash and Mansarovar Lake within a short period of time, but would not mind going through some physical and mental challenges if the situation demands. This journey not only saves time and avoids arduous vehicular journeys, but also provides ample opportunity to experience true Nepalese culture and lifestyle. The journey begins with a fixed-wing flight to Nepalgunj and onto Simikot and vice versa to end the trip. The helicopter is used to fly from/to Simikot.

Flight cancellation or delay due to the bad weather, beyond the basic accommodations in Simikot and Hilsa, and lack of acclimatization days, are some drawbacks of this journey. Thus, those who would like to experience a smooth and hassle-free Darshan of Kailash and Mansarovar Lake may participate in our Kailash Mansarovar Pilgrimage via Lhasa.
