This 9 days Kailash Manasarovar tour by helicopter is designed for those who have constraints of time and wish to take short and more comfortable journey.We fly Nepalgunj - Simikot by regular flights and Simikot - Hilsa (Nepal - Tibet border) by chartered helicopter.

We take “parikarma” (circumambulation) of Manasarovar by coach and of Mt. Kailash on foot.
