Trip Introduction

Mount Kailash Helicopter tour is the kind of tour that is perfect for those that are short on time and have the decent budget to make the trip. Tour starts with a 45 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, in the south of Nepal, and where you will rest to acclimatize a little before continuing. The second leg of the trip is a 40 minute flight to Simikot then 20 minute by helicopter to HIlsa. This 20-minute flight takes you across some of the most amazing countryside in Nepal, with jungle and hilly landscapes soon giving way to the immense peaks of the mighty Himalayas. After landing in Hilsa, it is a ten-minute walk across the border and into Tibet, where you will be met by your Tibetan guide and driver with your vehicle, and driven to the town of Purang (Burang) County of Ngari Prefecture, known as Taklakot in Nepali.

Kailash Manasarovar Heli tour is ideal if you just want to visit Kailash and Manasarovar without stopping in the rest of Tibet, and have a limited time in which to undertake the thrilling trek around the mountain. A combination of flights, driving, and trekking, this route takes a completely different course to get to the sacred mountain, one which passes over the Himalayas at Nepal’s most northwestern point, Hilsa.
