On luxury and short days the yatra to Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by helicopter is the best way to reach from Kathmandu or reach from Lucknow in India. The helicopter is not allowed to land in Tibet, so it is still in Nepal’s Hilsa – on the Tibetan border. We travel for 25 minutes to catch our car on the Tibetan side to Taklakot, also known as Purang.  After that drive 200 Km to reach the holy Lake Manasarovar Lake. This is a shortcut to Manarovarar and can be easy for busy travelers. A short flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj or to Nepalgunj via Lucknow, sleeps in Nepalgunj. The next morning we will have a flight scheduled to Simikot, after the departure plan, and take a Helicopter to Hilsa Nepal-Tibet. After the emigration process in Tibet, we continue driving to Taklakot. This is the fastest and shortest way to reach the Tibetan Kailash Yatra. We are working on a 10-day Kailash heli visit with Lucknow for those travelers with limited travel time..
