Mt Kailash (6638m) is a sacred pilgrimage site for Hindus all over the world. Located in the beautiful Himalayan region, Mt. Kailash has many holy lakes, including Lake Mansarovar and Lake Rakshastal. This incredible mountain is widely believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati.
Thousands of pilgrims travel to this holy mountain every year to worship and perform rituals. According to mythological texts, Mt. Kailash is where Lord Shiva spends his time smoking sacred marijuana and meditating. Since it lies in remote terrains of the Himalayan region, travelers need to trek for many days to arrive at this destination.
Mt Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Helicopter is a great tour that provides you with scenic views of the Himalayas. The comfortable trip is of short duration as we travel through these terrains in a helicopter. However, it doesn’t mean that this trip is entirely on a helicopter. You will have to take domestic flights and long drives during this journey as well.
However, after reaching Simikot, you will take a specially chartered helicopter to Hilsa, in the Tibet-Nepal border. You will further drive to Mansarovar and complete the Kailash Kora Circuit before returning the same route. Mt Kailash has a 52 km long walking circuit, but climbers cannot climb this mountain as it remains prohibited due to religious reasons.
According to locals, completing this incredible circuit will cleanse past sins and brings “moksha.” Therefore, Hindu pilgrims regard this mountain as a great religious significance. Moreover, Mt Kailash also holds significant importance in Tibetan Buddhism. Tibetan Buddhist mythologies also state that Lord Buddha went to Mt. Kailash and spread Buddhism through these routes in Tibet.
Furthermore, Mt Kailash tour also includes a tour of lake Mansarovar where you can take a holy dip. Lake Mansarovar means the lake of consciousness in the local language.
