"holiest of all holy pilgrimage sites within high and scenic Himalayan range of mountains"

Muktinath Pilgrimage on helicopter will be an amazing journey of few hours that takes you between massive mountain range of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri which is listed as world’s tenth and seventh highest peaks.

The word ‘Muktinath’ literally means ‘Salvation or Liberty’ relives you from birth cycle or frees you away from bad and evil / wrong doing, where Hindu pilgrims from all over Nepal and India pays homage every year in large numbers defying high altitude and Himalayan arctic freezing temperatures.

The main flow of pilgrims comes to free from chain of life cycle and as well to relinquish the sin of a hundred life times.

Muktinath adorned with religious ancient temples of impressive monuments and its famous old 108 water spouts which is one of the source of Kaligandaki River, the temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu one of the three main Gods of Hindu religion (Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu).

At Muktinath, where visitors and pilgrims can witness great natural elements in miraculous form of flickering blue flames of natural methane gas burn on water, stone and earth as an offering, said to have been first lighted by Brahma, the Hindu creator of universe.

The story of Muktinath and the purity goes back into antiquity of more than 2,300 years, where both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims comes for pilgrimage to observe the sight of natural power and as well on walks pilgrims search along Kaligandaki River valley, for black glossy fossils called Shaligram (ammonite), found in abundance around Kaligandaki River banks.

On the outside they look like small rounded rocks but split open they reveal the imprint of ammonites formed past more than 140 million years, due to its wheel-like shapes of slug imprint associated with Hindu God Lord Vishnu.

This interesting muktinath helicopter tour starts early morning from scenic Pokhara blessed with Annapurna Mountains and Machhapuchare ‘Fish Tail’ peaks and lakes, where Helicopter lifts high above Pokhara valley heading towards Far North West.

As air journey continues flying above green high hills covered with dense rhododendron and pine trees facing incredible views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain range heading above Kaligandaki River valley (regarded as world’s deepest gorge), finally flying above arid and windswept country of Mustang.

A refreshing break at Jomsom, headquarter of Mustang with an airport and then flying over Kaligandaki valley to land near Holy Muktinath Temple premises.

At Muktinath temple homage and prayer in the main Muktinath temple after taking a bath or washing on icy 108 water spouts, then enter the main temple complex and visit around other temples and monasteries of importance to Hindu and Buddhist religions.
