Located at the lap of Himalayas, 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 Hindu and Buddhist 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, 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 orchard, 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.

    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 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.

    Traveling to Nepal was not difficult for us but we were new to this country and we didn't have anyone known here. It was really difficult to spend days with the help of the map only. But one day, while we were walking in the street of Thamel, we heard the name Nepal Trek Nepal Trek. We heard it from some trekkers who had completed their journey with Nepal Trek. I immediately searched it on the map and found the location. It was just 2 minutes far from where we were staying. We went there and had an external lookout. After a few minutes, I went inside and discussed the trips' packages they exclusively offer. We got attracted by a helicopter tour. They had Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour, Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour, Langtang Helicopter Tour, Manaslu Helicopter Tour, and Muktinath Helicopter Tour. Every helicopter tours were associated particularly with natural vegetation and snowy landscape, except Muktinath Helicopter Tour.  It was focused on both natural snowy landscapes and religious aspects. It was in our budget too. It was a budget-friendly tour for us in Nepal as well. It was the best decision that we had taken. Nepal Trek provided us everything that they had committed to us. They had the big had in making this trip successful. I enjoyed everything a lot. It was really awesome services provided by Nepal Trek Adventures Team. Kudos!

    Best After-trek Adventure with Muktinath Helicopter Tour

    After my Everest Base Camp Trek, I had lots of fun inside Pokhara and Kathmandu. I did not know how time passed and the day finally came for my helicopter tour. I was doing the Muktinath Helicopter tour to experience the Nepalese forbidden region and heart-warming culture and religion. I was really excited about that particular moment. I was really high up in the sky and everything looked really small at the surface and views were really awesome. Finally, we were at Muktinath. We clicked lots of photos, videos and returned back with lots of memories. When I was back from Nepal, my friends were jealous of me because I had shown them all those photos and videos that I had captured. Also, because I was the first person of my group who had come to Nepal and done the amazing trips in Nepal like Everest Base Camp Trek and Muktinath helicopter tour. I am much thankful to Nepal Trek Adventure and the whole team for all the arrangements they did for my tour. Without you all, this trip would not have been successful this way.

    My friends who have traveled to Nepal always use to talk about the services provided by Nepal Trek Adventures & Expedition. I had heard lots of stories about their visit to Nepal and wish of visiting Nepal at least once in a life. I was like 'OK'. Recently my brother traveled to Nepal and returned with lots of photographs and told me lots of interesting things about Nepal. I was literally so much jealous and while he was scrolling the photos my eyes struck to beautiful places that rolled. So I asked him about that place. He told me that it was Muktinath and started sharing his experience in that awesome colder and silent environment. I was really interested and unlocked my phone and started to search for this place. There, I found the package provided by Nepal Trek Adventures. It was a helicopter tour to the Muktinath temple. I was impressed. I thought about nothing and booked the trip immediately. On following days, I arrived at Nepal. Ariel view was really astounding. That greenery and colorful landscape with dry and dusty essence was so appealing that I was proud of myself for choosing this helicopter tour in Nepal. NTA provided transportation facility and organized hotel and every necessary feature for the successful trek. I was so blessed to be associated with their team. This Muktinath Helicopter tour is one of the best thing happened to me. Another best thing is that people treat you so well with their ethnic cultures and norms.

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.
