A Muktinath helicopter tour is the easiest way to visit Muktinath and explore around. This helicopter tour to Muktinath Temple is done either from Pokhara or Kathmandu. The Heli flight takes about 03.30 hours to complete from Kathmandu and 02.30 hours to complete from Pokhara.

It proffers outstanding the sight of mountains, green hills, rivers, lakes, and occasionally snow-white landscapes. Within this helicopter tour, we will pick you up from your respective hotel and transfer you to the airport via private vehicle.

Then, the helicopter will board onward upon the pilot's signal. The grounding/landing time for this tour is marked as 01.30 hours. In this time, we will head for Muktinath Darshan, bath in sacred ponds (known as Mukti Kunda) and 108 cows faced water spouts, outlook eternal flame (residing within a minute's distance from the main temple), known as 'Jwala Mai'.

Located at the lap of the Himalayas, the Muktinath temple is the center of attraction for trekkers, adventure travelers, and believers. In spite of being a temple of Lord Vishnu, this Hindu deity is admired by Hindus and Buddhists equally.

Due to its recognition as the temple located at the highest altitude (about 3,800 meters from sea level), it is one of the favorite trekking and touring spots for adventure seekers and nature lovers. Every year nearly 17 thousand people visit there in the on-seasons like autumn and spring, and winter cannot be missed (in winter climate remains cooler than ever but also several visitors do not fade).

Although the majority of visitors visit Muktinath for religious purposes, a substantial amount of visitors scale the temple due to its adventurous terrain and magnificent views. The view of snow-covered mountains, apple orchards, hanging bridges and the exposure to the local lifestyle is potent enough awoke the adventurous self in anyone.

Muktinath is the place where all five elements on earth are found: Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Sky. The word 'Muktinath' is comprised of two words, 'Mukti' and 'Nath'. 'Mukti' means 'Salvation or Nirvana' and 'Nath' means 'Master or God'.

Beliefs: According to Hindu myth, there is a belief that Hindu devotees will get nirvana after taking a bath in those waterspouts and holy ponds. There is a ceremonious belief of tossing a penny in that holy pond and grasping the same or different coin is well-thought-out as a lucky charm.

Altitude Sickness: In this helicopter flight, we exceed the height of 3,500 meters; hence, there is a chance of altitude sickness. Some of the major symptoms of altitude sickness are suffocation, muscle ache, nausea and vomiting, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, swelling of hands, feet, and face, frothy sputum, headache, rapid breathing, persistent cough, blue skin coloration and so on. To avoid that, medications Diamox and acetazolamide can be preferred.

Freedom of panorama: One can click photographs and videos anytime during this tour, except inside the temple. The statue and inner outlook of the temple are prohibited to capture, because of religious beliefs and the country's privacy policy. Other than that, other attractions can be clicked and taken as impressive momentum.

Helicopter Flight Guarantees: Helicopter can fly and land in low visibility as well. There is no chance of flight postponement or cancellation. But if the weather and climatic condition remain unexpectedly poor, then trip postponement for some hours or the day can take place. The flights' cost will be managed by the company, with no doubt, but accommodation and food should be managed on your own.

Food and accommodation: The food and accommodation for this Muktinath Helicopter Tour should be managed on your own i.e. company will not be responsible to settle you and manage nutriments. But with your due demand, the company can classify that too, but at a supplementary cost.

    Helicopter Tour to Muktinath Temple with Nepal Trek Adventure

    Several months ago, my girlfriend and I were thinking about a helicopter tour. While surfing the internet, my phone rang. It was a call from my best friend. I told him that I wanted to travel and he suggested me to visit Nepal. He had already traveled to Nepal twice, and he suggested because of his greatest experience here. After the talk, he messaged me with the link to the website of Nepal Trek Adventures. I opened the site and rolled overall. I strolled down the page for every detail and was impressed with the contents. I was watching over for half an hour though. My eyes stopped at Muktinath Temple Helicopter Tour. I looked over and booked the trip. We had customized this trip with Kathmandu sightseeing. After a week, we arrived in Nepal, and upon our arrival, the NTA team transferred us to the hotel, provided private vehicles, food recommendations, and all the necessities to stay lively in Nepal. We roamed Kathmandu Valley for 2 days and on the third day, we had our helicopter flight to Muktinath. We observed other foreigners on the spot too. We talk to them and found out that they had walked a very long way to reach there. We also told them about our helicopter flight. They were like in the 'AMAZED' gesture. They didn’t know about it. After spending some time there, we moved back to Kathmandu with the same helicopter ride, enjoying the most-amazing bird-eye view of the trail-side panorama.  We had a really good time there. Everything was so refreshing and peaceful. I would definitely visit Nepal again in the future for my further treks, land tours and of course amazing helicopter tours.

    Muktinath Helicopter Ride with Best Trekking Company

    Muktinath Helicopter tour was the best helicopter tour of my life. I had done the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour in Nepal with one company and the organization and arrangements were really poor. I didn't like the services at all. This time, I had booked my Muktinath Helicopter Ride with Nepal Trek Adventures Team. I was scared that I would get poor services like the previous companies, but with the promises and words they had on website and through email conversation, I had hoped though. But I was astounded by the services they delivered. Every service and factors were arranged so well that immediately after the ride, I decided to join this company for my further trips in Nepal. I made a promise with Binod too. Binod is the owner of the company who handled everything for making my journey a huge success. I enjoyed this helicopter ride to Muktinath with Nepal Trek Adventures so much. I cannot explain my happiness in words. I, with my whole heart, recommend Muktinath Helicopter Ride and Nepal Trek Adventures for the impressive venture in Nepal.
