Muktinath Helicopter Tour Overview
The Muktinath Helicopter tour is designed for those who are cramped on time but still want to enjoy the most of a spectacular holiday that’s open to the ardent adventurer & also the holy pilgrim seeking to make peace with the gods.
The Muktinath Helicopter Tour is an outstanding trip of spiritual significance. Muktinath is based in the north-west part of Nepal, beyond the Annapurna Himalayas. The visit by chopper takes pilgrims to one of the most holy Hindu pilgrimage destinations in the world, & is billed as an iconic divine journey of ultimate importance before passing from this world for hindus. The air tour by helicopter takes off from both Kathmandu (about 3 hours round trip) and Pokhara (about 2 hours round trip), allowing you about an hour for worshipping and taking a holy bath at the temple. The trip in the sky takes you above some spectacular landscapes of the Annapurna region initially and ultimately flies above the Kaligandaki River valley in the famous Mustang region. There’s a stopover at Jomsom for refueling (if you are flying from Kathmandu) and flies to Muktinath, which is a blessed town, at the footsteps of the Thorong-La Pass of Annapurna.
While going through your rituals at the Muktinath Temple, the mountainous environment gives you a holy tranquil experience which is ideal for that of a pilgrimage trip, said to wash away the sins of a lifetime, according to mythological beliefs. The helicopter tour begins early in the morning as the Kaligandaki River valley remains extremely windy during noontime. This air tour by helicopter is very safe & helpful in the sense it avoids all the risky road drives & landslides that occasionally occur in this area. The sky tour is considered highly beneficial & safe for family groups with children and senior citizens.
