Trip Overview

Kailash Mansarovar Helicopter Tour

Kailash Mansarovar Helicopter Tour is relatively shorter than the overland voyage and less demanding for older individuals. Yet at the same time, you may confront some issue of flight undoing in rainstorm time. We utilize both settled wing flying machine and sanction helicopter in the trek. Blessed Mount Kailash is the paradise in the three domains of oriental presence. The celebrated blessed mountain, Kailash, Lakes Mansarovar and Rakshas Tal are arranged in the Arctic Tibetan level in western Tibet between the mountain scopes of Gurla Mandata (7694m) in the southeast, and Kunlun Mountain in the northwest.

The closest largish town is Ali, which is the Chinese-assembled regulatory place for Ngari prefecture. Be that as it may, there are various close-by goals of significant intrigue which you can incorporate during your Kailash Heli tour: particularly Lakes Mansarovar and Rakshas Tal and the Guge ruins, yet additionally Tirthapuri Gompa, Purang (close Nepal outskirt) and Pangong Tso (Bangong He).
