Located at the altitude of 3,710 meters at the base of the Thorung La pass in the Mustang district of Nepal, Muktinath – a holy temple of Lord Vishnu, is one of the most sacred places on earth for Hindus and Buddhists. The temple is also famous as Mukti Kshetra (the place of salvation) among Hindus and Chuming Gyatsa among the Buddhists. Many pilgrims from Nepal and India visit this holy place to pay homage to Lord Vishnu every year. Since the temple lies in the Annapurna Circuit Route, many trekkers attempting this Annapurna Circuit Trek also visit this area.

Apart from the temple of Muktinath, this tour allows you to enjoy the northern Himalayan range, parts of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, beautiful landscape, temple of Jwalamai, where all 5 elements of the universe are found at one place and the Kali Gandaki Gorge.

Early in the morning, a company representative will come to pick you up at your hotel and transfer you to the airport (in a private car). After completing the departure formalities at the airport, the helicopter leaves Kathmandu, for the temple of Muktinath, situated north-west of the Kathmandu Valley in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The helicopter flying parallel to the northern Himalayan range also makes its way through the world’s deepest Gorge, the Kali Gandaki Gorge, before reaching Muktinath. The helicopter will land near the temple of Muktinath and stop for half an hour. During this time, you can perform holy puja, take a dip in the holy pool in front of the temple and a holy bath in the 108 water spout or simply spend time exploring the Muktinath and Jwalamai temple area taking pictures of the beautiful site. After half-an-hour stop at Muktinath, we will fly back to Kathmandu. The tour ends with a dive back to the hotel from the airport, in a private vehicle.
