Additional Important Information for Heli trip to Kailash Manasarovar
Based on our experience, we are hereby mentioning about unpredictable climatic disturbance in heli trips to Kailash which is a common factor of heli trips to kailash mansarovar. We operate trips in regular fixed wings flights between Nepalgunj to Simikot and regular helicopter service between Simikot and Hilsa. This tripis dependent on the operation of those regular flights/helicopter and is completely weather permitted. We are sharing with you herein below tentative information about the additional expenses which may incur on you during the trip in unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions, political closure, strikes, riots, technical failures etc.
Know about Nepalgunj – This is a small town at India-Nepal border (200 kms from Lucknow) with more facilities and infrastructure. All flights to Simikot depart from here only. Nepalganj and Simikot are not connected by road hence flight is the only option. Flights from Nepalganj to Simikot are the small aircrafts operated by local airline. Even in minor climatic disturbance these flights gets delayed or cancelled for safety reasons and it is totally at the description of the local authorities and flight operators. We do not bear any liability for such delays and/or cancelations.
Know about Simikot – Simikot is a very small hill settlement in Nepal and a point of air connection between Hilsa and Nepalganj. Simikot is better place in terms of living climatic conditions and service standard, as compare with Hilsa. The flight connectivity between Nepalganj to Simikot and Simikot to Hilsa is totally depending on weather conditions, which is beyond our control. In the event of climatic problems, flight cancelations, flight delays or any other unforeseen situation our team will help you in managing accommodation, food and other services which will be on direct payment basis.
Know about Hilsa – Hilsa is a deserted border town in Nepal, close to China border from where pilgrims enter to visit Kailash Manasarovar. In the event when the pilgrims get stuck at Hilsa due to climatic conditions, flight delays etc the facilities of accommodation, food, medical etc are very limited. Longer delays are also expected in rare cases as faced in May trip. Managing with the best available resources is the only option we get at Hilsa and discomfort is very obvious at this place especially if the hault gets longer than expected. The accommodation at HIlsa is in backcountry style and available food will be very basic (rice, noodles, soup, local water etc).
The unpredictable weather conditions and other limitations with the flights operating between these sectors mentioned above, sometimes causes short or long delays in onward and/or return journey to/from Kailash Manasarovar, making the situation little tough and we only can wait for our turn to get the flight to next destination.
Notes : We are a tour operator and we work under agreement with various airlines, hoteliers, transport agencies and other local service providers in India, Nepal and China. We therefore do not take any responsibility of additional expenses incurred due to any unforeseen circumstances and weather conditions. Our liability is to provide services as mentioned in the list of inclusions of our tour package, assistance of our team for evacuation and arrangements of accommodation, food etc. But all additional expenses incurred due to such situation will be payable by the traveller only.
