For a luxury and short days yatra to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by helicopter is the best option where we reach either from Kathmandu or reach from Lucknow of India. The helicopter is not allowed to land in Tibet, so it is still at Hilsa of Nepal – Tibet border. We walk for 25 minutes to catch our vehicle on the Tibet side to Taklakot, which is also known as Purang.
After that, we stay one extra night in Taklakot for the acclimatization toward Kailash. Then drive 200 Km to reach in holy Manasarovar Lake. This is the shortest route to reach Manasarovar and can be convenient for the busy pilgrims. A short flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj or reach Nepalgunj via Lucknow, stay overnight in Nepalgunj. Next morning we will have a scheduled flight to Simikot, after the formalities of Immigration, then we take a Helicopter to Hilsa Nepal-Tibet border. After the immigration process of Tibet, we continue to drive to Taklakot. This is the best and shortest route to reach Tibet for Kailash Yatra. We operate 10 Days Kailash heli tour via Lucknow for those travelers who have a limited amount of time for traveling.

Thanks for the excellent tour arrangements made by you for our Kailash Manasarovar trip. Needless to say it was flawless and we truly enjoyed every moment of it. Every minute details was taken care by you and we were amazed when you made Chinese Immigration to open office at 8PM to accommodate our entry and so is our exit from China. You both appear to be agents of Lord Shiva who are taking care of every individual planning to take Kailash Manasarovar trip through your agency. Keep it up and we are sure to join you for another trip some time in near future

Trip insurance is important documents. Touch Kailash Travels and tours do not need your insurance policy for permit and visa confirmation. it is only for your secure and immergency. make sure your insurance cover travelling up to 5600 miter altitude and cover Emmergency rescue and Medical bills.
Oxygen level is less at higher altitudes. The inclement weather and high altitude induces certain illness generally not encountered over the plains. Headache, nausea, lassitude, lethargy, breathlessness, general uneasiness [malaise], high irritability, light loss of balance, disorientation, incoherence and insomnia are a few. It is common to all irrespective of the age, sex and physical fitness. Gradual acclimatization is the best answer. Tranquilizers, sleeping dose and strong anti-biotic must be avoided. Some of symptoms indicate that the body mechanism is readjusting to new environments. The best idea is deliberately slow down all the activities and follows the following rules:
You are advised to own a small waist pouch or document bag to manage the following documents properly;
