Mt. Kailash & Mansarovar

BY HEICOPTER- 2014

This tour is ideal for those devout pilgrims who cannot undertake the road drive over the Tibetan plateau due to age or other health factors. They will fly on fixed wing aircraft to Simikot, District headquarter of Humla from Kathmandu. A night for acclimatization is required before fly to Tibetan border. Next day chopper meets the group at Simikot and ferries the client to Hilsa Nepal – China border. Short walks to Chinese check post. The land cruisers drive over a week from Lhasa to pick up group from Sher for Kailash Manasarovar Journey. As you can see the logistics have to be carefully planned and the tours booked at least 3 weeks in advance.
