Helicopter Tour from Lucknow
Dip Deep into Intense Spirituality on Your Kailash Yatra
Scaling up a height of 21,778 feet, Mount Kailash (Kailasa in Sanskrit) is a lot more than just a mountain. According to Hindu traditions, it's the abode of Lord Shiva. That's why a journey to this Trans Himalayan mountain has extreme spiritual significance. Not just by the Hindus, but Mount Kailash is held in high regard by hundreds of thousands of people from all across the world and other religions like Buddhism, Jainism and Bon. Like Mount Kailash, Lake Manasarovar is also a revered site of Hindu pilgrimage. The lake lies to the north of Mount Kailash. Together, they constitute the very popular Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, which carries extreme spiritual value – both in Hindu and Buddhist traditions.
After your arrival in Lucknow, undertake a road journey to Nepalgunj, which is located in Nepal. Next day, get ready to reach the Nepalgunj airport from where you'll fly to Simikot. Arrive at Simikot, and then get to Taklakot, which is a good place to warm yourself up with some light trekking adventure. Later, drive to the holy Lake Mansarovar, a one hour road journey from Taklakot. Feast your eyes on the heart-stirring sights of Mount Kailash from near Lake Manasarovar.
You'll have enough time to explore what surrounds Lake Mansarovar. Next, be prepared for a short drive to Darchen, which is the place from where pilgrims begin their parikrama of Mount Kailash. You'll have the freedom whether you want to go on the parikrama or not. If not, then you can wait for the other members to complete their parikrama and get back. Enjoy wonderful trekking tours during your Kailash Mansarovar Yatra – from the easiest to the hardest. After quenching your thirst for adventure and spirituality, get back to Taklakot. Finally, get back to Lucknow following the same route through which you came.

"Though, every journey is a blessing from Lord Shiva, however, my journey to Mount Kailas and Lake Mansarovar wouldn't have possible without support from Max team. A big salute to Max team for making my dream of Kailash yatra during August 2018. Appreciate the team work. My special thanks to Minakshi and Jaspreet. I would appreciate the entire crew during the Yatra (Krishnan/ Vinay /Prince / Prakash / Kesan / Pempa/ Samrat / Khaka). Well done and keep growing…"

"Taking care of one's group is great. But helping people of other group is greatest. This we found in Vishal of Max Holidays. When our tour operator, Nepal Pilgrim Travels, Mylapore, was nowhere to be seen and who had left us high and dry, it was Mr. Vishal who helped us a lot. Stranded at Hilsa on 3rd July and when some of us were ill he brought in his team doctors immediately and assured us that we would be taken care of. We have all decided that in future our travels would be with Max Holidays. One can be sure that he/ she is in safe hands."

"har har mahadev,I had a strong desire to visit Kailash Mansarovar, When I started searching for good tour operator, It was very difficult to identify the best one as all were promising the best. In the process when I contacted Max Holidays and asked the contact number of a person who visited Kailash last year, I was provided the number of three person and I contacted one Mr. Nirankar Agarwal who explained the entire process of yatra and with his satisfied experience with Max, I along with two colleagues took up the journey with the Max. Mr. Vishal Gogia, CEO Max and Mr. Girish Vats coordinator attended us at Lucknow Airport and they were all along with us throughout the journey. We all were given a personalized care and their coordination at all places with all agencies was superb and none of us had to face any inconvenience. We had a wonderful onward journey to Mansarovar, A divine bath, Hawan Puja at Holi Mansarovar on Full Moon Night and ultimately full parikrama of Kailash which could be completed successfully within two days. Our return journey was also well planned but due to bad weather some of us had to stay at Hilsa for three nights. However, Mr. Vishal did his best to attend everyone. We could see the difference between Max Holidays and other tour operators. All the 40 members of the group were fully satisfied with personalized attending and hospitality rendered by Mr. Vishal and his team. I am looking forward to travel with Max Holidays soon. I wish the Max Holidays all the very best."
