Simikot Kailash Helicopter Tour

Duration: 11 Days   |  

Simikot Kailash Helicopter tour: A journey to the Mount Kailash area is truly an experience of a lifetime – and we can facilitate your great spiritual adventure by arranging a trip customized to your special requirements.

However, we recognize that some of you would like to see Kailash and the holy lakes, but may be hampered by time restraints. For these pilgrims, we have designed a special package which cuts the whole journey down to 9 days by using helicopter transport between Nepalgunj and Simikot/Hilsa. Taking this version of the trip means that you can still enjoy the full Kailash and Lake Mansarovar experience in an unhurried manner.

Below is an eleven day itinerary for Kailash Helicopter tour that we have offered here. If you need to cut down your traveling time even further, we can probably adapt the program to your requirements, so please contact us for further details.

Useful Information

01. Depending on weather condition and group size, we provide fixed wing aircraft in between Nepalgunj and Simikot but in between Hilsa and Simikot there is no alternative other than Helicopter. Helicopter accommodates 4 passengers at a time depending on the group size & baggage load by small helicopter OR carry 18 passengers at a time if MI – 17 Helicopter (big chopper) available.

02. We must land at Simikot for going through immigration formalities of Nepal government while going and coming back 

03. During the Parikrama, if you like you can stay in local Guesthouse but you should pay for it directly otherwise we do camping.

04. The weather condition in the mountain (Simikot and Hilsa area) plays the vital role on this journey. So, due to the weather fact the trip might be delayed to depart by one or two days in the beginning. Simultaneously, if the weather in between Simikot and Hilsa is bad, the Helicopter can’t come to pick you up at Hilsa. In this case, you have to stay in Hilsa and our company bear accommodation and foods for one extra night but incase it goes longer the group has to bear all extra expenses. Only basic foods and accommodation is available in Hilsa. So, every passenger on this journey is advised to keep some spare days in the yatra.
