Kailash Yatra via Kathmandu

Every Year, thousands make a pilgrimage to Kailash, following a tradition going back thousands of years. Furthermore, pilgrims of several religions believe that circumambulating Mount Kailash on foot is a holy ritual that brings good fortune. Similarly, the peregrination is in a clockwise direction by Hindus, Buddhists. While Jains and Bonpos circumambulate the mountain in a counterclockwise direction.
The Path around Mount Kailash is 52 km (32 mi) long. Pilgrims believe that the entire walk around Kailash should be in a single day, which is not an easy task. A person in a good shape walking fast would take perhaps 15 hours to complete the entire trek. Kailash Yatra via Kathmandu is a yatra by the helicopter that gives you a wonderful experience.

Yatra is starting and ends at Kathmandu. On this yatra, the maximum journey carried out by scheduled flight and special chartered Helicopter flight. We use normal scheduled flights on Kathmandu and Nepalgunj/Simikot sectors. On the Simikot/Hilsa/Simikot sector, we have to use a special chartered helicopter flight.
