Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Road or by Helicopter – Take Your Pick

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra is one of the most revered Hindu pilgrimages. Every year, thousands of devotees throng to Kathmandu to embark upon this holy trip. India Pilgrim Tours offers comprehensive pilgrim tour packages for trips to the Kailash Mansarovar. Year after year, we process thousands of applications for the spiritual cum sightseeing tour around the Himalayas. Most of the times, our guests are confused whether to sign up for the Yatra by road or by Helicopter. So we have enlisted the pros and cons of both Kailash mansarovar yatra by road & helicopter so that you can decide the best one for yourself.

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra by Road over Yatra by Helicopter – Pros

1- Longer itinerary – The Yatra by road has a 13 day itinerary while the Yatra by Helicopter is an 10 day itinerary. The former’s itinerary is a lot more detailed and relaxed while that of the latter may seem a little rushed to some guests.

2- Package Rates – Due to non-inclusion of any kind of air travel in the package, the overall Yatra package rates become a lot more affordable, starting from INR 94,000. This is preferable for most of our guests

Kailash Mansarover Yatra by Helicopter over Yatra by Road – Pros

1- Shorter, more compact itinerary – Kailash Mansarover Yatra by Helicopter involves travel for a much lesser duration due to the Simikot – Hilsa helicopter ride. Please note that the destinations for the two Yatras are somewhat different and the itineraries are differently planned.

 2- Comfortable for older pilgrims – The itinerary for Yatra by helicopter has been designed to minimize the physical rating for the tour so that older pilgrims find it easier to complete the Yatra. Guests must note that comfort has been optimized in the Road Yatra as well – it’s only the travel time that is little more in this case.

It is comfort against cost; budget against time. If you are short on time and want to reduce travel time, go for Kailash Mansarovar Helicopter Yatra; else, your best bet is on the Yatra by Road.
