Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Helicopter from Kathmandu


Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Helicopter from Kathmandu

Tour Highlights:

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a spiritual odyssey that beckons pilgrims to the remote and majestic landscapes of the Tibetan Plateau. This sacred journey, encircling Mount Kailash and the pristine Mansarovar Lake, is steeped in religious significance for Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and Bonpos alike. Join us on this divine adventure as we explore the mystique and profound spirituality of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

1. Spiritual Significance:

Mount Kailash, standing tall at 6,638 meters (21,778 feet), is considered sacred in Hinduism as the abode of Lord Shiva. Buddhists regard it as the mythical Mount Meru, and in Jainism, it is believed to be the site where the first Tirthankara attained liberation.

2. Circumambulation (Parikrama):

The primary ritual of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is the circumambulation or parikrama of Mount Kailash. Pilgrims trek around the sacred mountain, a journey believed to cleanse the soul of sins and lead to spiritual liberation.

3. Dirapuk and Zuthulpuk Monasteries:

Along the parikrama route, pilgrims encounter Dirapuk and Zuthulpuk monasteries, which offer shelter and a place for reflection. The rugged terrain and high altitudes make this pilgrimage.

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is more than a physical trek; it is a spiritual quest that transcends the ordinary. As pilgrims navigate the breathtaking landscapes and engage in the rituals around Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake, they become part of a timeless tradition that seeks spiritual elevation and union with the divine. May the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra be a transformative journey, leaving pilgrims with memories of awe-inspiring landscapes, spiritual encounters, and a profound connection to the sacred heart of the Himalayas.

We provide standard rooms in 3 to 4-star hotels in Kathmandu with twin sharing bedrooms. However, accommodation while on tour is essential in guest houses. The guest houses are considered very basic and have dormitory bedrooms, no attached bathroom, outside bathroom (acceptable), no shower facilities, etc. Although some of the guest houses are pretty good, these are fully booked most of the time.

Well, if you are traveling with a stay at the guest house, our guide will help you find a good restaurant at a reasonable price.
