Mount Kailash is considered to be the holiest mountain on the planet. Through the ages, many monks, yogis, pilgrims as well as adventurers and travel enthusiasts have visited the mountain for pilgrimage and the spectacular scenery. If you have ever dreamed of visiting Mount Kailash but never had the time needed to do so overland, then our Mt. Kailash Helicopter Tour is the right choice for you!
The comfortable helicopter ride starts in Kathmandu and takes you half way over the country through scenic landscapes to Nepaljung, a border town of Midwestern Nepal. From there, the next flight will bring you to Simikot – the zonal headquarters of far western zone Karnali. The region around Simikot has one of the most beautiful and rarely visited landscapes in the world. From Simikot you will start your 5 days overland parikarma around Mount Kailash, entering Tibet. The short tour takes you to the crystal clear highland lake Mansarovar. Once the holy parikarma is done and your soul filled with bliss and long-lasting memories, a flight will take you back from Simikot to Nepaljung. The flight back to Kathmandu is a trip and an adventure of its own. You will see Nepal unfold in front of you with its most diverse landscapes ranging from the southern flatlands, lush green fields and the giant snow-capped Himalayas.
