Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Helicopter Route: Thorough Guide for Helicopter Mansarovar Kailash Yatra

How is the helicopter tour of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra conducted?

The Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is a pilgrimage that is profound with religious significance and meaning. The very act of going on the Yatra is fraught with deep meaning because of the toughness of the mountainous terrain and the roughness of the weather. The Hindu religion attributes Mount Kailash to be the abode of Lord Shiva, who is believed to meditate in the mountain for the most part. Kailash Mansarovar is one of the most sacred pilgrimages a Hindu person can go on and if you are planning to do it, then it is important that you choose the right travel option. There are at least 5 to 6 routes to go on the Yatra and going by helicopter is a great idea as long as you choose the right private tour operator.

Advantages of going by helicopter on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra

As mentioned, there are quite a few routes for someone to choose from but the helicopter route has certain advantages that no other route offers:

  • Time-saving: It will save you a lot of time if you choose to go by helicopter. It can take anything between 5 and 11 days to complete the trip, which is certainly time-saving compared to the 3 weeks that the Ministry of External Affairs-conducted trip takes. If you have a busy professional life or you can’t take out a whole lot of time for the Yatra, the helicopter route is the smartest option for you.
  • Cost-effective: The helicopter route conducted by the Trip To Temples agency is also cost-effective. It is going to cost you about Rs 1, 65,000 to do the trip, which is cheaper than what the MEA-conducted trip offers. This is certainly good news for people who want to do the Yatra on a budget.
  • Less stringent medical procedure: This is actually the best thing about choosing a helicopter route for the Yatra. The government conducts stringent medical examinations to determine the state of an applicant’s health because of the rigorous trekking involved in their routes. But when you choose a helicopter route, the medical procedure is a lot more lenient and less stringent considering the fact that little physical activity will be involved.
  • Less risk: It is also true that the helicopter route offered by Trip To Temples is a lot less risky than the routes that have a lot of trekking to be done. This is because you or the other pilgrims in your group will not have to traverse long distances by foot and the major part of the journey will be done by air.
