10 DAYS TOUR OF KAILASH MANSAROVAR BY HELICOPTER

This package is not only a spiritual yatra, but one of spectacular sights and adventures. Both Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar have a special significance for followers of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Bon religion. Mount Kailash, towering at a height of 21,778 ft., has been a pilgrim destination for thousands of years. It is a peak in the Kailash range which is part of the Trans-Himalayan range in Tibet. At the foothills of Mount Kailash lies Lake Mansarovar, one of the highest freshwater lakes in the world. The lake is considered a symbol of purity and it is believed that a dip in its holy waters cleanses one’s sins.
