Kailash Tour with Lhasa by Flight

Trip Duration: 14 Days      

Until September of 2017, the 14 day Kailash tour, but with Lhasa both ways by flights was much in operation because of the heavy destruction of road and other infrastructure at the old border point called Tatopani/Zhangmu as a result of the massive earthquake of the 25th of April 2015. Alternatively, there was only way to Mt Kailash by an expensive helicopter flight via Simikot located at the far remote western part of Nepal. So, even today, those people who wish to avoid the risky drive along the difficult terrain of the newly opened border point of Kerung and the expensive helicopter journey, have been undertaking this 14 days Kailash tour by flights. This is the easiest option open to all, but a little more expensive.

In other words, first, we fly to Lhasa from Kathmandu (or from the mainland China) and proceed to Mt Kailash and Manasarovar. After completing the tour, we again come back to Lhasa using the same way back journey and finally fly back to Kathmandu (or to the mainland China) as per itinerary.
