Introduction

Kailash Mansarovar via Helicopter is exclusively crafted for those pilgrims who are willing to travel for a specific short span of time, but have an ardent yearning to pay respect to the abode of Lord Shiva. Therefore, Richa Tours has specially carved an outlined itinerary that saves the client’s honorable time and avoids the long strenuous vehicular journey.

 

The major part of the journey is covered by especially Chartered Helicopters. The trip begins with a fixed wing flight to Nepalgunj and to the next stopover, Simikot and vice versa to conclude the trip. Similarly, helicopters are used to and from to fly in and out to Simikot. It is important for pilgrims to come with a cooperative mindset that flight cancellations are probable in chances of harsh weather conditions and our Company will do everything to keep our clients content. Guests should be mentally and physically prepared for the basic accommodation in Simikot and Hilsa, respectively and should not mind the challenges that may arise once the journey commences.

 

Our Company performed the first Helicopter Yatra in 2000 for the Sahara family from India and it was a noble honor to cater them. Since then, Richa Tours has teamed up with professional crew to provide a complete service. Our team includes the Sun Valley Resort in Nepalgunj, chain of hotels in Purang, Lake Mansarovar, Darchen, Dirapuk and Zhuthulpuk. Furthermore, for a proficient hospitable journey, we have a high quality maintained “Fixed Kitchen” at all the above hotels. Also, we are incorporating with Sita Air and Tara Air as our partner airlines to Simikot supported by Mountain Helicopter for the shuttle to Hilsa. With the cooperation from China-India Pilgrimage Service of Tibet-China (CIPSC), Richa Tours lets you embark on a “journey of a lifetime”.
