Mount Kailash Helicopter Tour is proposed for those who are looking for a short time visit to pay divine attention to Lord Shiva’s abode.

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

Mt. Kailash is a holy place for different religions like Hindu, Buddhist, Jains, and Bonpo. Hindus worship this mountain as the residence of Lord Shiva, the destructor of the universe. Buddhists mythologies refer to this holy mountain as a terrestrial projection of the cosmic Mandela of Dhyani – Buddha’s & Bodhisattvas. The wheel of Life; for the Bonpo, Kailash was the sacred nine-story Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Sherab alighted from heaven.

Four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent originate from here: the Karnali, which feeds into the Ganges (south); the Indus (north); the Sutlez (west) & the Brahmaputra (the Yarlung Tsangpo, east).

So, explore and enjoy every kind of adventure and cultural trip in the Himalayas with Himalayan trekkers.
