Overview

Kailash Mansarovar Yatra By Helicopter

According to the Hindu Mythology, Lord Shiva spends his most of the time on the top of the holy Mount Kailash, practicing Yogic austerities, joy and love with his divine consort Parbati (Mother of Mythology). The Lake Mansarovar and the holy Mount Kailash are the SOUL of all AUM followers in the world. "Conventional wisdom says a single circuit of Mt. Kailash wipes out the sins of a lifetime, 108 Parikramas guarantees enlightenment. A ritual bath in the sacred Mansarovar Lake delivers pilgrim to Brahma's paradise and a drop drink of its water relinquishes the sins of hundreds of lifetimes."

This is the beauty of "Great Kailash". GoGanges.com presents you an opportunity to travel to Shiv's abode via helicopter at an unbeatable price. Book now@ Limited seats.
