The Mount Kailash Helicopter Tour is proposed for those seeking a short visit to pay divine attention to Lord Shiva's abode.

Mount Kailash, at 6714 m, is often referred to as Tise, Kailasa & Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows). It has been held on Mt. Meru, the Axis Mundi, and as the center of the physical and metaphysical universe in many eastern cosmologies.

Mount Kailash is a holy place for different religions like Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, and Bonpo. Hindus worship this mountain as the residence of Lord Shiva, the destroyer of the universe. Buddhist mythologies refer to this sacred mountain as a terrestrial projection of the Cosmic Mandela of Dhyani: Buddha and Bodhisattvas. The wheel of life; for the Bonpo, Kailash was the sacred nine-story swastika mountain, onto which the founder of Bonpo, Sherab, descended from heaven.

Here four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent are born: the Karnali, which flows into the Ganges (south); the Indo (north); the Sutlez (west), and the Brahmaputra (the Yarlung Tsangpo, east).

So, we Himalayan Trekkers Team make sure to help make this must-do trip memorable and a lifetime experience.
