Kailash Heli Tour Ex. Kathmandu.

Kailash Heli Tour Ex. Kathmandu.

09 Nights/ 10 Days

overview

If you prefer to have quick and easier Kailash Mansarovar Yatra and save time (by 4 days); then Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Helicopter is the best option for you. This is the Luxury tour where you will stay in 5 Star Hotel in Kathmandu. You will be flying to Nepaljung and to Hilsa & from their will be driving to Mansarovar. We are hopeful that you will join our group in 2016 for this most popular Hindu Pilgrimage in Asia.

We at Royal Nepal Holidays, leading organizer of Mt. Kailash Mansarovar Yatra have been undertaking several trips in order to deliver what is to be the most memorable journey of your life. We have made other many momentous journeys, but none of them stand out so unmistakably as this trip to western Tibet by air, road and foot. It is undertaken mainly by pilgrims, to a place considered sacred by hundreds of millions of Buddhists,

Hindus and Bonpos (followers of the pre-Buddhist Tibetan shamanistic faith). When it ended, we understood why so many sought to come to this place & started to launch an offer to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra since decades. The trip was motivated solely by the fascination for Manasarovar and Kailash.

With the height of 15,000 feet, Manasarovar is one of the highest freshwater lakes in the world. It has a circumference of nearly 90 km, while the circumambulation of Mount Kailash, which lies to the north of Manasarovar, traverses about 52 km of mountain trails. It is located in a remote part of Tibet beneath the Trans-Himalaya, a range much older than the Himalaya. Many Indian pilgrims take the Indian government’s sponsored tours, which began during the late 1970s after Beijing began to permit them. However ours is a privately organized one which is meant to be both more expensive and also we could proceed at our own pace.

No one has climbed Kailash, although legend has it that the Tibetan mystic Milarepa’s ascent during the 11th century marked the victory of Buddhism in Tibet. China reportedly permitted some Spanish mountaineers to climb in 2001, but this was resisted by the Tibetans and the report was later denied by the Chinese government. German climber Reinhold Messner, who declined a Chinese offer to attempt an ascent of Mount Kailash in the mid-1980s, criticized the aborted Spanish attempt with the words, ‘If we conquer this mountain, then we conquer something in people’s souls.’
