Muktinath Helicopter Tour Overview

Muktinath Helicopter Tour is the fastest and easiest way for Muktinath Darshan (pray). Every Hindu pilgrim all around the world wishes to visit the Muktinath Temple at least once in their life. But due to many issues like age, physical conditions, health and bounded by time, the travelers aren’t able to visit Muktinath overland drive or by trekking.

Hence, Muktinath Helicopter Tour is designed for you. The helicopter tour skips the adventurous off-roads and allows you to fly over the alpine Himalayas, witnessing a thousand miracles of Mother Nature from green lush hills to rocky cliffs, dazzling streams, and waterfalls, ancient caves, and monasteries.

By flying from Pokhara, you will get an opportunity to standpoint the destination, Poon Hill, Kagbeni, Muktinath, Kaligandaki gorge, and Jomsom. After landing in Muktinath, be prepared to be astonished by the too good to be true view of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Macchapuchhre, Mt. Nilgiri, and so forth that has the core of thousands of visitants every year. 

Consequently, at the rise of 3800 meters, you can frame your excursion towards Muktinath. Just within 3 hours, you can experience this entire journey of religious tour. The yatrus (travelers/pilgrims) will get to worship Muktinath Temple and Jwala Mai Temple, visit monasteries, and take a holy bath in 108 Muktidhara and Muktikunda. In case of unfavorable weather, sometimes the flight back may consume time until the weather clears out. This trip can hold up to 1 – 5 people on a single flight. 

Muktinath Temple

Muktinath Temple is a significant religious site for both Hindus and Buddhists. This shrine revered to Lord Vishnu is located at the foot of the Thorong La pass. Its name is derived from “Mukti” which means salvation and “Nath” which means “God”, therefore Muktinath is known as “God of Salvation”. Hindu pilgrims also call it ‘Mukti Kshetra’, a place of salvation because they believe that taking bath in 108 Muktidhara (holy waterspout which flows from Kali Gandaki) and two Kundas (holy ponds) brings salvation forgiving their sins performed during lifetime.

Muktinath Temple is a Svayam Vyakta Kshetras, one of eight sacred places, one of the 4 most important Hindu heritages, also one of the 108 Divya Desam, as well as one of the 51 Shakti Pithas. 

Muktinath is known as Chumig Gyatsa in Buddhism which means “Hundred Waters”. It holds great importance in Tibetan Buddhism as a place of ‘Dakinis’, goddess known as Sky Dancers, and also is one of 21 Tantric sanctuaries.

There is also another shrine known as Jwala Mai Temple or Salambar Dolamebar Gompa which is an eternal flame that produces fire eternally from Himalayan spring water resources as it produces natural gases. It represents a union between two opposite elements which is considered sacred in both religions. 

Main Attraction of Muktinath Helicopter Tour

Indulging the statement of a luxurious visit towards the Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrimage site, Muktinath Temple, this tour counts the eye-capturing view of the lake paradise-Pokhara Valley. A picturesque mountain view of over 8000 meters confers breathtaking memories throughout your life. Likewise, when you are flying in between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna massifs, the helicopter tour grants the feeling of a visit to like heaven. 

This region also lies in the Annapurna Conservation region hence, is very rich in exquisite flora and fauna. Mustang is also popular for Shaligrams (Black Ammonite) that date way back to Jurrasic Park Period.

In Hinduism, Shaligram is believed to be the embodiment of Lord Vishnu. Mustang is also the only place on the planet where all five elements (fire, water, air, earth, and sky) that make up the universe are found at the same place. This region is filled with religious sites and many Hindu and Buddhist philosophers including Sakyamuni, Guru Rimpoche, Swaminarayan, and others have meditated here.  Muktinath Temple also falls on the way of Annapurna Circuit Trek. 

Best Season

Muktinath Temple by Helicopter can be visited any time of the year. The ideal time to visit is Spring, Summer, and Fall/Autumn but it is also safe to visit during monsoon because Mustang is situated in the Trans-Himalayas region so it doesn’t receive more rainfall.
