Kailash Manasarover Helicopter Tour

Kailash Manasarover Helicopter Tour

10 Days

A spiritual journey to some of the important Hindu pilgrimage sites, coupled with an exciting helicopter flight.

The Kailash Manasarovar Yatra holds immense religious values for the Hindus. Believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, Mt. Kailash is claimed to be the apex of the Hindu religious axis. Lord Shiva or Bhola Baba is the most beloved among the thousands of Hindu deities. Hence, there are uncountable devotees who take on this tour to receive the blessings of Lord Shiva and attain spiritual contentment.

Completing a Kora (Parikrama) around Mt. Kailash is believed to erase the sins of a lifetime. To complete the Kailash pilgrimage, one should bathe in the sacred Lake Manasarovar, which lies only 30km from Mt Kailash. According to Hindu Mythology, it was formed in the mind of Brahma, and the Goddess Parvati is believed to have taken the form of the lake Manasarovar. Even drinking the waters of the lake frees a human being from sins of all kind as well as illness. Myth has it that the Gods come to bathe every morning in this lake between 3 to 5 am and this time is called 'Brahmamuhurta'. Another legend has it that Parashuram's ashram is situated on a hill, on the banks of Manasarovar.

Kailash Yatra begins with an hour flight from Kathmandu, Nepalgunj and Simikot, followed by an exciting Helicopter ride to Tibet Nepal Border. Tourist Bus  transfers you to Lake Manasarovar, where your spiritual journey begins.
